How to use Video Templates
If you're already familiar with Smartly's Image Templates, you'll feel right at home with Video Templates. You can fill a video template with content from your product feed, or use static images, videos and text. Template presets give you a running start: select one and customize it in the editor to match your brand. You can also start with a blank canvas and create a fully customized template for use in any number of campaigns.
You can find Video Templates in the Asset Library. In the library view, you can open Video Templates for editing in the Creative Editor, and create new templates or clone existing ones as needed. In addition, you can open Image Templates as Video Templates to convert them to create video creatives.
On the Preview page, you can use the collaboration tools available to review and comment on the video creatives that your template will create. You can also share the creatives for public review to external stakeholders who don’t have access to Smartly.
