Saving a custom video template is a quick and easy way to ensure that your videos consistently match your team’s brand guidelines.
When using a template, all styling options - including Scene Layouts, Text Styles, transitions, colors, and fonts - are automatically applied to a new video.
Creating a template
First, create a video that you would like to use as a template. The video can be saved as a draft or produced.
Once finished, return to the homepage and navigate to the video that you would like to use as a template.
Click on the options panel below the video thumbnail, and select 'Add to My Templates,' as shown below.
Your template will then appear in the Templates flow at the top of your homepage.
You can also find your saved templates in the 'Templates' tab under 'My Templates'.
Note: Anyone with access to your brand account will have access to the template.
Using a template
To create a new video using a template, simply click on the template’s thumbnail. This will create an exact copy of the template and bring you into the Editor.
From there, add a new title and swap in any media or text where needed. You may also choose a new cover image to easily differentiate between your videos.
Produce the video as usual.
Editing a template
To edit a template in the Templates flow, click on the options panel on the video thumbnail and click the 'Edit Template' button. You will immediately enter the Editor to make any changes. Produce the template to confirm your changes.
Removing a template
To remove a template from the Templates flow, click on the options panel on the video thumbnail and click the 'Remove From Template' button.
Template best practices
Templates are great for teams that need to follow specific brand guidelines for each of their videos. If your team needs to use a specific Text Style or font in all videos, using a template ensures that these guidelines are met in each and every video.
Many customers also create templates for each type of video that they plan to create. For instance, they may have one template for event videos and another for interview videos. Check out our pre-made templates in the Templates flow for inspiration (or edit an existing template to make it your own)!
