How It Works

Simple. Intuitive. Scalable.


Build applications around your data and content with the tech stack of your choice and our editing SDK's.


Post your edit to the Shotstack Cloud API. Our render farm fetches and edits your assets, merges your data and renders your video.


Download the final video in the format and resolution of your choice – HD, SD, mobile or social, mp4 or gif.
