In the previous article we had shown you some of our favourite technical features of Creative Factory. Not all of them fit into one article, that’s why we are bringing you the second part. Find out how to make your Creative Factory experience even better!
Changing input values with mouse moving
When using the configuration panel to set the size or position of an asset, you don’t need to write an exact number to change it. Simply try to use the left part of the input text box to change the value quickly by pixels. Click with your mouse and slide to the left (to decrease the value) or right (to increase the value).
If you need to use your own font in your template, you have an option to upload it into our editor. Learn more on how to do so in our step-by-step guide.
You have a template with many assets, all of them have their animations set up. Then you suddenly change the animation of one asset and it suddenly looks so good that you want to have it applied also on other assets. And this is where our Copy animation feature steps in! This feature allows you to copy animation (both in and out) from one asset to another, no matter the type - text, shape, image or product image. Besides the animation, the asset duration will also be changed - so the copied animation is exactly the same, also in terms of duration.
To use this feature, navigate to the Animation tab on the right panel and find the Copy animation button. Then choose the asset which you want to apply this animation on and click the Paste animation button.
Not satisfied with auto-generated thumbnails for your videos? With this feature you can easily choose which frame of your video should be used as the thumbnail. This thumbnail won’t be used only in your library of templates - it will also be sent to Facebook and used as a static thumbnail before your video ad will be played.
Navigate to the left panel and find the Settings icon. Now try to move the blue slider on the timeline showing the actual position in the video - you can see that the value in the Video Thumbnail setting is changing while moving the slider. When you pick the frame you want to use, click on the Set new thumbnail image button.
