Video Presets are where you define the types of videos you'd like to end up with after your session. Use them to preconfigure the name, size, quality, video template and more up front, and pick which ones to apply when creating a new outfit.
Tip: You can create multiple Video Presets that have different aspect ratios but are otherwise identical. StyleShoots will then automatically create both versions when you enable both during creation of a new Outfit.
Creating a Video Preset
In the Presets screen, tap Add Video Preset.
Configure the preset details (see following sections)
Deleting a Video Preset
Select the preset you want to delete.
Tap Delete and confirm.
Video Display Name
The display name is a straightforward description that makes it easy for yourself and others to recognize the preset while working with StyleShoots. It will not influence the folder naming or your exported files.
Example display name: Short Instagram video
Video Folder Name
The exact name of the folder your files will be saved into. Create a name that fits your file management standards.
Example folder name: v_insta_short_4-5
Video templates provide a starting point for your video, including transitions, pace, camera movement and framings.
Tap Video Template to pick among a selection of templates for your video.
Watch the example videos to get a sense of the framings, cut and pacing of the template.
TIP: The final look of your videos depends fully on you model, clothing, lighting and set design, including which background color and accessories you use. See the video template like a base structure to which you add you own creativity.
Choose between Shorter, Medium or Longer to alter the video length. The final length will depend on the video template.
Video Aspect Ratio
Choose between a list of possible aspect ratios (width vs height) for your videos. The ideal ratio depends on where you are planning to use your video.
9:16 works well for digital signage and full screen apps like Snapchat.
2:3 works well for most websites.
4:5 works well on websites and apps like Instagram.
Tip: You can create multiple Video Presets that have different aspect ratios but are otherwise identical. If you enable both when creating an outfit, StyleShoots will automatically reuse the same footage to create two versions of your video.
Video Width Resolution
Choose a resolution based on where you plan to use your video.
Tip: Many social apps and online video players accept high resolutions and automatically downscale videos to best fit the receiving device. So often you can choose a single high resolution format and simply reuse the same file across all platforms. This simplifies file management and saves time during export.
Video File Details
Set the file format and quality to your preferences.
File Type options:
MP4 - encoded in H.264.
MOV - encoded in ProRes 422.
Limited - on/off
Tip: StyleShoots Live automatically adds a range of meta data tags to all photos and videos exported from the system. See full details and list of tags under File Handling.
You can limit the amount of metadata information embed by turning on the setting 'Limited'. This reduces metadata to only include product and copyright information, suited for web publication.
