Ingest API

Use the Ingest API to fetch assets from URLs or to add upload functionality to your applications. Source assets are stored by Shotstack until you delete them. Stored assets can be used directly in your edits. The Ingest API is designed to be used with video, image, audio and font files.

The Ingest API also allows you to create renditions from the source file. A rendition is a new file created from the source file with transformations applied. For example, you can create renditions with different resolutions, aspect ratios, cropping, frame rates and quality.
