This application is the perfect example of a well executed and documented API. In less than 10 mins, set up, web hook done, and first render! Mike Maberry, Gunslinger.dev
There are a couple of other options out there that attempt to provide the same or similar solution, but none of them come close in terms of quality, ease of use, and speed. Adam Chubbuck, Software Engineer
Shotstack was EXACTLY what I was looking for, and incredibly easy to get started with. You guys are killing it. Colin Plamondon, thebeam.fm

Frequently Asked Questions

Do videos and images still get created if I go over my credit limit?
Yes, your videos and images will continue to render. Any credits you use in excess of your allowance will be charged as overage at the end of your billing cycle.
What happens if I go over the free tier credit limit?
If you go over the free tier limit your videos and images will continue to render but have a watermark applied.
How many video minutes can I create with 1 credit?
1 minute of video up to 720p resolution (1280px × 720px) is 1 credit. Resolutions over 720p are charged at higher rates.
How many images can I create with 1 credit?
With 1 credit you can create 10 images up to 1000px x 1000px resolution (0.1 credit per image). You can create 5 images with resolutions over 1000px x 1000px (0.2 credit per image).
Do you round up my videos to the nearest minute?
You only consume what you use and we aggregate video by the second. This means that a second of video is charged at 0.0167 credits.

Example: If by the end of your billing cycle you have rendered 195 minutes and 20 seconds at 720p resolution you will have consumed (195 minutes x 1 credit / minute) + (20 seconds x 0.0167 credit / second) = 195.34 credits.
I need to render a large number of videos or images, do you provide discounts?
Our pricing is designed to provide you with steep discounts on higher plans. If none of our plans are suitable please get in touch and we can discuss volume discounts.
Is there a minimum term contract?
The contract term for all our plans is 1 month starting on the third of every month. All our plans provide you with the option to purchase a set amount of credits that expire 1 month after you purchase your plan.

If you sign up to a plan mid-month you will be charged pro-rata until the third day of the next month.

Any credits used in excess of your plan's allowance is charged as overage. You can cancel your plan at any time and you will be able to use your credits until the end of your billing cycle.

If you are looking for a high volume of credits for a short-term campaign please get in touch for custom pricing.
Are there any setup costs?
None of our Essentials or Professional plans come with a setup cost. It's as easy as signing up and using your API key to render videos and images.
What happens if I go over my storage or bandwidth allowance?
We will continue to store and serve your videos and images. If you happen to exceed your storage or bandwidth allowance this will be charged as overage.
If I cancel my plan can I get a refund?
You can cancel your plan at any time and request a refund. If you haven't used your plan at all we'll refund you the whole amount. If you did use your credits we'll refund you the lowest of either the prorated days left in your billing cycle or the prorated value of your remaining credits.

Example: Peter wants to cancel his Essentials 200 plan 25 days into his 30-day billing cycle with 50 credits remaining. He gets a refund of $8.17 as the pro-rated value of his plan over 3 days is lower than the pro-rated value of his credits at $12.25.
Can I license Shotstack or install it on my own server?
At this point we don't allow our software to be licensed or be self-hosted. Shotstack's infrastructure is designed to generate media at scale, and we process hundreds of thousands of videos each month with a guaranteed uptime of 99.9% for paying customers. If you are in need of more guarantees and plan to use Shotstack for mission-critical applications and workflows please get in touch to discuss our custom SLA's.
Do my credits carry over into the next month?
Your credits expire at the end of your billing cycle and do not carry over to the following month.
What happens if I use a large amount of storage for one day only?
We calculate your monthly usage based on the maximum amount of storage you've used across your billing cycle. If you need excess storage for a short amount of time above your plan allowance this will be charged as overage.
Can I use my own storage and hosting?
Yes you can. To opt out of the provided storage and hosting add a simple opt-out parameter to your edits.
When will my plan go into effect?
Your plan will go into effect immediately, but will prorated until the 3rd day of the following month.
