Video templates

Our video creation tool, Prezi Video enables you to turn any Prezi presentation into a video. We have a variety of templates under Video templates specifically designed for presentations that will be recorded as videos.

Video templates are optimized for showing you, the presenter next to your content on screen unlike with traditional screen sharing, so you so you don't have to choose between sharing your screen or showing your face – helping you keep connected and engaged with your audience.

These templates work best for use with Prezi Video, where you can record a video presentation or share it live in your video conferencing app of choice. However, you can also turn your presentation into a video or add narration to it even if you are not using one of the video templates.


Starting from scratch

From your dashboard, select Start from scratch to build up your presentation from a completely blank template. You can also find two blank templates, Blank and Blank - Dark in the template chooser.
