Accessing Cloudinary assets within Movidmo

Videos can be created using pre-made designs from the Movidmo template library or from scratch. The library contains hundreds of templates available in a variety of sizes (wide, square and vertical). Templates can be used for simple plug-and-play purposes, or they can serve as design inspiration.

In this brief tutorial, the Criss Cross template from the template library will be modified with images and videos from Cloudinary to create a video ad for a realtor. The raw contents of this simple video template are shown below.

As a starting point for the video tutorials below, some modifications of the template have already been made in the Movidmo editor. The color scheme has been changed to match the realtor's web site using the Swap Colors option under the Tools menu. The captions have also been modified to include the realtor's catchphrase (If you can live anywhere, why not here?) and a call-to-action with the realtor's web site address.

Adding Cloudinary content to the backdrop

Movidmo distinguishes between content in the backdrop and overlay layers. The backdrop is a sequence of videos and/or animated moving images that serve as a background for other content contained in the overlay. The backdrop for this example template contains a video and a moving image that are replaced with Cloudinary assets as shown in the video below.

Adding Cloudinary content to the overlay

Captions, images, design filters, icons and shapes can be overlaid on the backdrop. For this tutorial, the generic logo in the overlay layer is replaced with a photo of the realtor as shown in the video below.
