Why add photo on a video?

Below are three main reasons why it's a good idea to combine a video clip with a photo like a jpg, png, or even GIF.


One of the most common styles of video when it comes to reporting is having a speaker in front of a camera and space above the speakers head for photos or even overlaying another video.


Similar to reporting you may be creating a niche education channel where you are explaining something and having photo illustrations in your video can help your audience understand better what you are explaining.

3General Engagement

It could be a product video, sales video, educational video, etc. Adding a photo on a video adds a new dimension of information and can even be used artistically. It's really up to your style and what your audience enjoys. The sky is the limit with Motionbox, to the moon!

To keep my audience engaged and excited for the weekly episodes I use Motionbox to promote the content. It's super easy to trim my podcast and add a visualizer.

Motionbox helped me create short clips of longer videos that were perfect for sharing as social media posts for my client's campaign. The built-in subtitle feature and progressbar worked great. I even used the subtitle feature to quickly generate copy from the longer videos so that I could also create blog posts! It saved me so much time. If I could use Motionbox to create top-notch content for my client who is a Super Bowl champion, then I'd say it's a superb tool!
