Screen Composition

The editing screen is structured with functions necessary for managing projects, such as previews and features for managing slides/elements to construct content.

Wizard Mode

As soon as a new project starts, you enter the Edit Screen where the wizard window pops up immediately. Here, you can set the title by default, and if you continue by clicking "Next", you can start creating content more easily. For detailed explanation about the wizard, refer to [Getting Started with Wizard Mode].

You can enter up to 5,000 characters directly into the text. Additionally, when starting with external text by copying and pasting or with a URL from a blog, etc., you can input up to 20,000 characters.

After that, using the "Text Overlays" function, AI summarizes and reconstructs the text according to the desired video style.

The software reconstructs the text to fit a maximum length of 60 seconds. However, the content entered can exceed 60 seconds to preserve the naturalness and completeness of the input.

Title Settings

You can automatically add content relevant to the subtitle by using the options below when utilizing the fade in feature.

  • The "Title + Body" option adds a title along with the body content, depending on the content.
  • The "Body" option omits the title and only adds the body content.

When entering the original text directly into the text editor, using the "#" tag will automatically convert it into a subtitle slide. (Make sure to leave a space after "#".)

Top Panel

The editing top panel contains tools for general management of the project.

Return to Home Screen (←)

Pauses the work and returns to the home screen. If there is unsaved content, a warning window appears. In such cases, click [Cancel] then Save to save all work progress to the server.

Change Title (No Title)

You can set the title and description of the project. By entering a URL in the description field, you can use it as a link when sharing.

< Edit Project Information >

Additionally, depending on the content created by several users, titles and summaries for the text description fields are automatically generated. In the case of text descriptions, up to three hashtags are added considering SEO.

Preview

You can preview the currently selected slide. If you select multiple slides, you can preview just that section. Click the bottom right settings (▼) button to preview the entire project.

Save

Saves the content of the project that is in progress to the server. Even if the user does not manually press it during the work, if a modification is made, it will be automatically saved to the server. For those who do not feel comfortable not pressing save manually, we also provide the option to manually save.

Shortcut key: Ctrl + S

Download

You can render the completed project into a file.

Video File (MP4)

First, press the "Rendering" button, then a rendering request is submitted. Rendering request means converting the project you made into a video file. After a while, once the file is added, the Download button becomes active, and by clicking the button, you can download the MP4 file to your computer.

Image File (PNG)

Saves every slide as individual image files. You can use this to download results in a card news style that are not videos.

Text File (TXT)

You can download all texts used in the project as a document format. It is useful to save as a text format again when the content has changed a lot during the work.

Additionally, by clicking the settings (▼) button, you can download subtitles in SRT and webVTT file formats.

Section Detailed Description
Slide Unit Add subtitle files based on all text within a slide in the project
Application Unit Add subtitle files including timeline information when line breaks are applied within slide text

Library Window

In the library panel, you can search for stock videos, images, etc., provided by VideoStew and load them onto the stage. The elements are organized into tabs like "Recent", "Favorites", "User", and "Stock".

Recent

Here is a list of elements you've used recently.

Favorites

Frequently used elements can be saved to Favorites, and added to the Favorites list. After hovering the mouse over an element, click the settings (▼) button to add it to Favorites.

User

This is the live library of elements uploaded directly by the user. You can add images or video files by dragging them onto the screen from the explorer or by clicking the [Upload](/guide/edit/basic/narration/upload) button. (If you drag and drop files into the live Library Window, they are not entered on the stage but only added to the list.) Additionally, the user tab allows you to find uploaded resources more easily through category classification. Category|Description --|-- All|Shows all resources uploaded by users Upload|Shows only the resources that were uploaded by clicking the upload button Paste|Shows only the images that were copied & pasted from the web Drag-and-Drop|Shows only the elements that were uploaded by drag and drop from the computer's file explorer Using the above classification can make file management more convenient. For example, frequently used resources can be added through the "Upload" button or by setting your own rules.

However, if the resources have already been used in another project, please be careful when you wish to edit that project again as the elements may not load properly.

This is the stock live library provided by VideoStew. You can change the search engine by category for each element, and search results vary by engine.

Search based on text content

If the auto-added b-roll elements (images and videos) do not suit your taste, you can search for recommended stock images based on the content you entered. ![](https://cdn.videostew.com/web/views/guide/Screenshot_2023-12-12_AM_10.09.45.png?_=18vjv) < Find videos and images by matching text > You can also click the settings (▼) button to perform a "Search based on b-roll".
