Step 4: To select a specific part of your video, just drag it to the right. The end of it will be delimited by the orange stripe at the bottom of the Kinemaster.

Step 5: To add a song or other audio to your video, tap on the “Audio” option, located in the circle on the right side of the screen.

Step 6: Then, select a song that is on your device to finish the process.

Step 7: In addition to an already recorded audio, you can also use Kinemaster to insert a voice recording into your video. To do this, touch “Voice” in the circle on the right.

Step 8: tap "Start" to make your recording.

Kinemaster: adding layers to your video

You can also edit your videos on Kinemaster through layers, which allow you to add media, effects, overlays, and other tools. For this:

Step 1: Touch the “Layer” option, next to the orange circle, on the right.

Step 2: To select a media and add it to your Kinemaster video, tap on “Media”. By selecting the “Effect” option, under “Media”, you can edit your videos with presets. Tap on “Basic Effects” to select options available on the free Kinemaster.

Step 4: in “Overlay”, you can add stickers to your Kinemaster videos. There are several options.

Step 5: After your overlay has been chosen, you can choose its opacity, movement in the video, or color. To do this, navigate between the menu options on the right side.

Step 7: After adding your text to the Kinemaster video, you can edit it. To do this, navigate through the menu on the right side. You can change the font (in “Aa”), the color and also choose animation options (like words that shake in the video or that blink slowly).

Step 8: In the same layer menu, choose “Calligraphy” to write something with your own hand, without having to use the fonts available at Kinemaster. It is possible to change the color used and delete the text as many times as necessary.
