How Do I Use Templates to Create New Projects?

Jason Liu -

Users can find and utilize templates created by WeVideo, other users in the instance, or templates created themselves to start a new project and speed up their content creation process. Users can also share their templates with others in their instance or reuse those templates in the future.

 

How Do I Access Templates?

Navigate to WeVideo Classroom and select the Templates tab on the left side.

Simply click on the template you want to use, and it will open as a new project. You can then start editing it as other video projects. The new project will also be added to the Projects page in the Classroom.

 

How Do I  Create My Own Template?

You can create a new template from the Templates tab or convert the existing project into a template.

Create a New Template

Switch to My Templates on the Templates page, and click the plus icon to create a new template.

Add the media into the template the same way as creating a new project ( i.e. putting content into the respective areas of the timeline). Once complete editing, select Finish on the top right.

Enter a title for the template, and select the visibility option for it: 

  • The Draft option will make this template only visible to you and can not be used by other users. 
  • The Live option will make this template visible to others in your instance, and they can create a new project based on this template. 

Click Finish to complete the setting.
