Do you know how to add your images and videos to our video editor?

We've updated our "Media Library" which will help you organize your media files even easier. Upload your photos and videos and easily find them in the folder which can be sorted alphabetically or chronologically.

Let's start from the beginning and see where to find your "Media Library" and how to use it.

Depending on your video content, you will need to upload some photos and videos. There are two options for you to do it:

  1. Click on “Media Library” and choose from already uploaded files, or
  2. Click “Browse” to upload files from your computer, or from your integrated Dropbox, Facebook, or Google Drive accounts.

Once they are uploaded, you can arrange them alphabetically from A-Z and Z-A, chronologically from the newest or the oldest, or filter by image or video files. After sorting them out, you can easily find your files and add them to your project. Your files also move from one folder to another according to their functionality, which helps you to have a more organized media library.

Easy and handy, isn’t it?

Create your folders to organize your files by clicking on the "New folder" button. You can also use the videos you've created with Renderforest and exported them in high quality since they are automatically added to the "Rendered Videos" folder.

With the "Use stock footage" situated right in the Media Library you can choose a video from 195.000+ stock videos available in our library. Type your keyword to find the relevant matches and click "Insert" to confirm.

There is also a newly added "My Logos" folder for image holders.  Here you can find all your high-quality rendered logos, and add them to your project with a single click.

Another new feature that makes the process of creating branded video content easier, is adding a watermark right from your "Media Library". 

To do so, turn on the "Your own watermark on the video" feature in the "Preview" section, and then click "Add". It'll give you several options to add your watermark. 

By clicking on the "Add from Media Library" option, you'll be redirected to your folders and be able to choose the logo or image that you need to watermark your video.

However, if you don't have a logo or image file in your "Media Library" to add as a watermark, click on the "Generate Watermark" option. Here you'll be able to create a new watermark and reposition it wherever you want in your video.

Depending on your plan, you will get from 500 MB up to 80 GB storage for your "Media Library". If your storage is full, you can either delete the unnecessary files or upgrade your current plan.
