The animation team here at Biteable has added a new collection of scenes called Frames which allow you to put footage with audio into a stylized frame. Things like a tablet, a desktop computer, and even apple watches can all be the highlight point around a talking head or interview in your video.

Add a Frame scene in Biteable Teams

This is how you add a Frame scene in Biteable Teams:

  • Open a video for editing or create a new one

  • Hit add, select the Branded Scenes folder

  • Select the category titled Media, and pick a frame

  • Click "Replace background" on the right and select/upload footage

  • Watch your video pop right into place

Add a Frame scene in other Biteable plans

This is how you add a Frame scene if you're on any plan asides from Teams:

  • Open a video for editing or create a new one

  • Hit add, select the folder titled Frames, and pick a frame

  • Click "Replace background" on the right and select/upload footage

  • Watch your video pop right into place

Working with Frames

Frames combine background footage and a foreground image (the frame), which can make them a little tricky to work with.

The frame element you see is an "image caption" with a transparent hole in the middle through which you can see your background upload. There are two ways to select the background upload:

  1. Move the frame, click the background and resize as you need, then return the frame to match

  2. Suggested method: Head down to the timeline and click in area that represents the background of the scene. This will select the background footage in your canvas.

The simplest approach (and likely the best) is to not change the positioning of the background footage or foreground frame. These scenes have been designed, formatted, and built so that you can pop in your own video and move on to the next scene without any need to edit.
