What does all the video clip terminology mean?

Updated 3 weeks ago by Tarryn Myburgh

What is a video clip?

Video clips are the videos submitted by your contributors. When you send your link out to your audience, via an email marketing campaign for example, they will submit videos to the link. These videos will appear as video clips in your video library under the ‘manage’ tab.

What is the video clip layout designer? 

This design will appear on all video clips submitted as an overlay. Everything from logos and text, to dynamic elements.

What’s the difference between static and dynamic elements?

Static elements are elements where the content will always appear exactly the same on all video clips. Compared to dynamic elements, where the content filled in will depend on what your contributors fill in when submitting their clips. For example, when Lauren Jones submits a clip to your project, ‘contributor’s name’ will appear as ‘Lauren Jones’ on her clip.
