Configure the Dynamic Clip Length in Studio

  • Updated

By default, content creators can replace existing video elements with a video of the exact same duration. However, with dynamic content, you can give your content creators the flexibility to create videos with different durations using the same template while ensuring that all elements in the template are adjusted accordingly.

How to Enable Dynamic Content?

  1. Navigate to Studio.
  2. Either create a video design or edit an existing video design.
  3. Select a video element in the timeline.
  4. In the right sidebar, click Video tab and select Duration
  5. Enable Dynamic Content.
  6. [Optional] Select your preferred Timeline behaviors.
    • We recommend setting the timeline behavior to Auto if you have multiple videos in your design. If the auto setting is not giving you the desired effect, you can overrule this with a custom setting.
  7. [Optional] Repeat the previous steps for all other elements positioned next to or above the dynamic element.
  8. Click Save to save your changes and Publish to make the changes.Duration tab.png

Timeline Behaviors

When custom videos with a longer duration are added to a design, this will impact the other elements inside the design. Studio automatically adjusts the position and behavior of the image and text elements positioned above or next to the dynamic clip. 

Select the element in the timeline and apply one of the following settings:

Static

The duration of an element and its position on the timeline is fixed and won't be adjusted if a video with a different duration is added.

For example, a logo is shown over a video. Both the logo and default video have a duration of 10 seconds. When a content creator replaces this video with a video of 20 seconds, the logo will still only show for 10 seconds. For the other 10 seconds, the logo won't be visible.

Slide

The duration of an element and its position on the timeline will follow the original logic and setup.

For example, a logo is shown over a video for the last 2 seconds of the video. The duration of the original video is 10 seconds. When a content creator replaces this video with a video of 20 seconds, the logo element will be repositioned on the timeline so that it still only shows for the last 2 seconds of the new video.

Stretch

The duration of an element and its position on the timeline will exactly follow the behavior of the dynamic video.

For example, a logo is shown over a video. Both the logo and default video have a duration of 10 seconds. When a content creator replaces this video with a video of 20 seconds, the logo element will be stretched on the timeline. The logo will then overlay the new video for the exact same 20 seconds.
