Designs in Studio

In Bynder you can quickly create or import video designs and customize them using our design editor in Studio. Once the designs are fully to your liking you can export them to video files without having to leave your portal.

Do you need videos for different channels or do you target different regions and audiences? Save yourself time and stop creating one variation after another from scratch. Use Studio to create different sizes and variations for the same design and have them exported to individual video files.

FAQ

Where are my generated videos?

You'll find your exported videos in the Export section of Studio. Read more about accessing and managing your exports here.

Why I can't edit an element in a design that I'm trying to change?

When creating a template, each element can be locked, meaning it cannot be edited in the design editor. If you need to edit an element, you can always duplicate the template and re-publish it without the element locked.

How long does it take to generate a video?

The render time of a video depends on the complexity of the effects. The more effects there are, the longer the video will take.

How do I download all my videos at once?

You can easily download any videos right from the main page, select the videos you'd like to download using the tick box on the left, then choose Download videos from the top menu.

Note

One design can hold multiple videos and these will all be downloaded at once when selecting this option. To download individually, enter the videos section as demonstrated at fig. 2 in the image above. Hovering on a video will give you the option to download.
