Using collage blocks in marketing videos

What is a collage block?

A collage block lets you put together a set of two or more images in one block, shortening video run times while also adding visual interest to your marketing video. Here’s how you can add one to your next video.

How to create a collage

To add a collage block, click the blue ADD A BLOCK button in the upper-right-hand side of your screen. A new window will pop up, listing the types of blocks you can use in your video. Under the “Special” category, you can find “Collage.” Click to add a collage block to your video.

Change the look of your collage

If you want more or fewer images added to your collage, click “See More” at the bottom of your collage block. This’ll take you into Edit mode, where you can edit your collage layout, adding up to 9 images per collage.

Pro tip

You can further customize your collage by adding text or changing the length of time the collage appears on screen.

Adding your images

Once you’ve decided on a layout for your collage, you can drag and drop images from your Media tray on the left. You can also zoom in on images—click “See More”, then use the slider tool under “Edit Image” to zoom. While you’re in Edit mode, you can also click on images to move them around if you want to adjust how they’re framed.
