In last weeks post I covered how to get started with WeVideo and setup your account. Once this is achieved, the next thing to do is connect your WeVideo account to a cloud storage service that you can send your finished videos to. WeVideo supports different video destinations depending on what type of account you have:
- FREE accounts have more destination options but limits on video quality and automatically includes a watermark.
- EDU accounts support fewer options but more choices on video quality and no watermark requirement. EDU accounts also come with Google Classroom integration, which I will cover in more detail next week.
For the purposes of this post, I will cover directions for connecting your WeVideo account to Google Drive.
Connecting to Google Drive
- Locate your avatar in the top-right corner of the window and from the drop-down menu select: Manage account.
- Under Video destinations, locate the option for Google Drive then click the corresponding CONNECT button to set up.
- Follow the directions to authentic your Google account and grant permissions to WeVideo to manage the files in your Google Drive.
- If the Google Drive icon turns yellow, then you have successfully connected the two apps. This will allow WeVideo to export finished video projects directly to a WeVideo folder in your Drive, which can then be easily shared, added to an assignment in Google Classroom, etc.
