From the “Create” menu, click on “Add New Video” to see the four options for creating a new video:
For each creation method, there are Advanced Settings options to adjust:
When you are in creation/edit mode for a video, click on the text in the top left corner to rename the video. By default, the creation date will be the title until renamed.
Under the gear icon, you can configure:
With the slide selected, click the “Upload Media” icon to the right of the slide to browse their computer for the file they own rights to use.
The photo/video icon opens the media library, where a keyword can be searched for to show related media files (either Images, Videos, or Both). When there is content you want to use on their slide, click the three dots in the right corner to “Replace Active Slide Media”. Other options include: open in new tab, copy, More from [Source] to see additional free photos from that creator.
A second way to access curated media is to use the “Recommend Media” icon to the right of the slide which will give you a few options to replace the slide with, or click “Keep Original” to continue without using the suggested media.
Not at this time. Only the narrator’s voice selected from the dropdown can be used to speak the narration text.
Yes, under Settings, click “Edit Soundtrack” then “Upload Track” to locate the .mp3 file.
With the narration editor opened:
Use the “Toggle Fullscreen” to expand your content to its fullest width/height without being cropped. Note: your slide must be at least 5 seconds in order to have this ability because there will be an animation. If your slide is shorter than 5 seconds, click on the timer that appears above your narration text and select the number of extra seconds you need. Then upon refresh, you will be able to expand your content.
If the script/content is long, the created video will be divided into scenes to make it easier to edit. Shorter pieces do not need to be divided into scenes.
Each scene has its own settings, including theme, which will prompt to confirm making changes to all scenes (the entire project), or just the current scene. Navigate between scenes by clicking the 1- 2- buttons along the top of the previewer, or use the Next/Previous buttons.
At any time during the creation/editing process, click the “Preview” button in the top right corner to see a rough preview of the slides and narration. We use the word “rough” because the preview will lack many transitions, animations, and other visual effects.
From here, either click the close “x” in the right corner to return to the previewer, or click the pencil icon that appears on hover over the preview video to continue making edits.
Toggling on “Show Track List” will open a quick way to add a music soundtrack to your video.
After opening Preview, click “I’m Done, Render My Video” to continue with the publishing process. You must render the video in order to use it on your site or send it to your Humix Studio.
Rendering might take some time so we’ve provided a notification setting to send an email when rendered, and the option to publish when complete.
In the Flickify dashboard, click on the “Manage Videos” tab to see a table of all of your videos (draft, rendered, published).
Each video will have a thumbnail that displays the video’s title, duration, status, creation date, and icons to edit (pencil), delete (x) or “Upload to Humix Studio” which will include that video in your Humix video library to then have the ability to share it with the video network (if enabled).
From the “Manage Videos” tab, in the table with your created videos, for videos that have been rendered at least once, you will see an upload icon that will send that video to your Humix Studio video library.
During the rendering process, you will also be prompted if you want to send the video to your Humix Studio.
Once these videos have been sent to your Humix video library, you can add them to a video embed on your site, include them within a created playlist, and/or share them with the Humix video network.
Not at this time. An individual use license isn’t available currently but will be available soon through a paid subscription that would allow you free use and export of the video legally; including stock footage. Stay tuned!
