JSON template editor launched

Over the last few months, we've been working on a new, easy to use, templating experience.

We are excited to launch the first version of our JSON template editor. This editor will let you start designing video templates from the dashboard.

This is an exciting step towards the launch of a complete GUI for video editing online. Expect to see more functionality to follow as we build an easy to use, feature rich, API-first, video editor.

How to use the editor

Login into the dashboard and click on the Editor link in the main nav bar. This will open the JSON editing interface that will allow you to edit your video. Start from scratch or use one of our pre-built template gallery and adapt it to your needs.

Take a look at the video below to get a close look at what this looks like:

What's coming next

The ability to edit using JSON is only the first part of the interface we have planned.

Over the coming months we will provide you with a drag and drop GUI, the ability to save templates and load them from the API, and no-code applications.

We'll focus on making the experience as developer and designer friendly as we can. We welcome your feedback if you have any difficulties or want to make a feature request.

Talk to us in the commmunity forum and stay tuned for future updates.
