When creating a Biteable video, you can upload your own video to play during any scene.

How to upload your own video

There are a number of ways to upload your footage into Biteable, depending on where you are in the app.

From your Asset Library

The Asset Library is your one-stop shop for uploading and organizing your uploads and assets. You have a Personal Library (only you can see these assets) and a Team Library (for shared assets on a Teams plan)

  1. Select "Assets" from the side menu

  2. Choose between your Personal or Team Asset Library

  3. Click "Upload media" to add a new clip to your library

Images and footage uploaded to your Asset Library can be easily added to any video at any time using the methods below.

From the Smart Editor

It's quick and easy to upload your own video footage from the Smart Editor.

  1. Open or create a video project in Smart editing mode

  2. Select a scene with media (image or video)

  3. Click "Media options" at the bottom right of your video preview

  4. Then select "Replace media" and choose the footage you'd like to upload

Smart editing mode is exclusive to Biteable Teams customers.

From the Advanced Editor

There are two ways to upload video footage in Advanced editing mode — the Add tab and from your timeline.

The Add tab

  1. Open or create a video project in Advanced editing mode

  2. Select the "Add" tab from the side menu, or click the "+ Add scene" button to the right of your timeline

  3. Click "Upload" to upload new footage, or choose from uploaded assets via the "My assets" and "Team assets" tabs

Your timeline

Replacing video footage

  1. Open or create a video project in Advanced editing mode

  2. From the timeline, select a scene with existing media

  3. Select "Replace background"

  4. Choose from the "My assets" or "Team assets" tabs, or click "Upload" to upload a new video clip

Adding video footage to a scene without video

  1. Open or create a video project in Advanced editing mode

  2. Add or select any scene from your timeline, then select the "Replace background" button

  3. Choose from the "My assets" or "Team assets" tabs, or click "Upload" to upload a new video clip

Editing your videos' audio and volume

If your video clip includes audio, any additional soundtrack or voiceover layer will automatically fade when the audio from your video plays. You can adjust both levels of volume within the Advanced Editor.

Once you uploaded footage with audio in it, you can also control the volume for that footage. Here's how you do it:

  1. Click on the scene to activate the right-hand menu

  2. On the right sidebar, slide the volume slider to the level you want.

  3. You can also mute the footage, or set it to fade in or fade out as the scene passes.

Pro tip: If you want to only use a part of the video you have uploaded, click Trim Footage to cut to the bit that you want.
