Step one: make a play button.
The easiest way to make a play button is to go to Canva.com.
Go head and click the button "create a new design." It really doesn't matter what size it is. And now we're going to click on "elements." Type in "play button," and it gives you a bunch of options. Go ahead and choose one and make it white. Then we're going to click share, click download, click transparent background, then click download.
Step two: choose a captivating scene.
So now with your editing program open, go ahead and choose about a three second clip that'll entice people to want to watch your video. Go ahead and drag that play button that you imported over your video.
Go ahead and adjust the size and opacity of the play button. Now go ahead and export your short video.
