Working with Scripts - Instructions

Jared Brick Updated by Jared Brick

Our Script area provides instructions to communicate how the project media (videos, photos, audio, etc.) should be aligned with your script for our video editors. This capability is key for reducing emails and other communications, and to express how you would like your video to be fully assembled for you. The more details you provide the more exact our edit will be for you!

Steps

  1. To begin either select a Script or create a new one by clicking + Add Script (Creating a new project and script)
  2. Once in the edit field, on a blank row a + symbol indicates that a block can be added
  3. Select an area to highlight text within a paragraph, exactly where you want the instruction to be applied to.
    1. For example when the script reads: "Hello, this is Tom" you can highlight this text and then select the action for Title and the editors will add your name and contact details (if known) as an overlay text caption onto the screen.
  4. Instructions are saved automatically after closing the Instruction screen
