Scrolling through social media, there’s a good chance you’ve come across countless social media videos that feature cool progress timing animations. So if you’ve ever wondered how you can add a progress bar to your video, we’ve got just what you need to do this quickly and easily.
Adding a progress bar animation can actually help you get more eyes on your video — and we know that’s what you want after you’ve spent valuable time creating an awesome video. Many social media platforms (such as LinkedIn, Instagram, or TikTok) autoplay their native videos. A progress bar can be a great extra visual element for grabbing your audience’s attention and clue them in that your video is auto-playing. And in the fast-paced world of the internet, those with shorter attention spans will be able to know that watching your video won’t take up too much of their time.
