To start, select Campaigns in the menu bar to head to your main campaigns dashboard.

Locate the campaign you want to create a ReMake for, and hit View Campaign under the campaign thumbnail.

On the next page, use the View All button to see all original videos for your selected campaign.

Now, choose your original video and click Create ReMake. 

First, you’ll need to give your ReMake a title. Go ahead and enter it, and then select Create ReMake.

The next page you’ll see is the main Remake editing screen. Below are the key functions available on this page:

Original video - this is your original source video.

Video functions - play, mute and see the original video in full screen.

Preview - a quick way to view changes immediately. visit live preview for more information. 

Markers - click these to skip back and forward to editable areas of the original video.

Number markers - click these to skip back and forward to editable areas of the original video.

Editable textbox - you’ll apply your new text here. The original text sits just above the text box for reference. Depending on the asset setup, there may be a max character limit - a warning will appear should too many characters be entered.

Markers and Number Markers - you can use these to move between the editable sections, along with the Next and Previous buttons.

Adding your copy:

To add copy to your video, insert text in the Editable Textbox under each editable section. 

Should a max character limit message be displayed, try reducing the number of characters entered to remove the warning, or if required, make adjustments to the number of characters in your original asset during the ingestion process. Click here for more information about adjusting character limits. 

N.B if you leave a text field blank, the original copy will be applied, if you would prefer to have no text added to that field, just add one blank space, this will acknowledge to ReMake that something has been entered. 

Once all the editable fields have been updated as desired, press Update and then Add to queue, ready to be rendered. 

The status of your new ReMake render will appear in the Menu bar.

Once added, a clickable icon will appear in the menu bar which can be expanded to show the full queue.

If you have items lined up in the Queue. Click the Play icon, to start the queue and begin a Render. 

Previewing your ReMakes

When your ReMake has finished rendering there are a number of ways you can preview your new ReMake. 

In the top right-hand corner is the notification centre.  Click to view created ReMakes. The number icon appears for any recently created ReMakes. Click View to go through to the new ReMake. Mark all as read or Clear all to remove the notifications. 

Alternatively, click back to your Campaign folder and view ReMakes on the chosen Original asset. 

From this view, it's possible to scroll through all of the reMakes made for that original asset in preview mode. 

And there you have it, your first ReMake.
