Articles on: Creating a Biteable Video

Premium clips from the Shutterstock library

All Biteable accounts come with an extensive library of stock footage from Storyblocks (one million scenes), but you also have the option to purchase premium clips via Shutterstock. The possibilities are endless!

Shutterstock library

Your access to Shutterstock's premium clips is pay-per-clip. Premium footage purchased by team members on a Biteable Teams plan can be used by anyone in your team an unlimited number of times.

Accessing the Shutterstock library

To begin using Shutterstock scenes, follow these two easy steps:

From your video, click "Add" on the top left, or the Plus button at the right end of your Timeline

On the next screen, select Shutterstock

When you click the Shutterstock option, you will see an information screen about Shutterstock's Terms of Use. Once you click "OK, got it", you're ready to go!

Using the Shutterstock scenes

Replace background

You can use this option if you want to go back to the Library to change the background scene.

Delete background

Use the trash icon next to the "Replace background" button to delete your clip from the background.

Trim footage

If you'd like to showcase only a specific part of the footage, click the "Trim footage" button to tweak the length.


We have three options in the Placement category:

Zoom, to magnify or reduce the size of the footage in the background.

Flip, to rotate the footage 180 degrees.

Reset, to bring everything back to the default setting.

Color filter

The color filter option will cast a color overlay on top of your scene. You can choose your color, and select the opacity by using the slider.

And now you know how to get the most out of our premium Shutterstock library! Go forth and impress your audience.
