How to Generate Reel

How to Generate Reel!

As always! You can count on Adilo to introduce mind-blowing extra features. And this time we did not disappoint, we are bringing the reels to you!

We are introducing reels!

Now let us tell you a little about this new premium feature added to Adilo; The reel thumbnail is usually an HD WebM/mp4 clip (up to 180 seconds in length) that is generated from the most-attention-pulling segments of your video and stitched together to form the perfect thumbnail that will draw people's attention and spike your viewership rate.

In Summary: All you need to do is mark the hottest segments in your video and our platform generates the reels automatically.

Before we begin, here are some things you should know.

The reels should be maximum of 60 seconds per timeframe, so for 3 timeframes max per reel, that means the max length of a reel is 180 seconds.
It is not mandatory for a user to generate 3/3 timeframes per reel, you can just use 1 or 2 timeframes, this means it is entirely up to you!

Let’s begin!
The first step is to select the video and then click on customize
Once that opens, click on thumbnail

Then it takes you to where you can generate the reels(see below)
Super easy right?

Note: Please ensure to always remember to work within the timeframe in your video while generating the reel,
For instance, the video used in this demo is 3:47 so the reels must be made within this timeframe.

Let's go further to show you how!

To generate the first reel 1/3

If you want to save after the first reel which as we mentioned earlier is possible,
All you have to do is click on the caption titled preview reel

This allows you to see the reel you have generated, if you are happy with it you can go ahead and save and if not you can also edit the the time line

Let's move on!
Now to generate the second reel 2/3, you click on the captioned titled add another reel burst....

This automatically generates the option to add another reel

The same process applies when you want to generate the third reel

Once you’re done, you can go ahead to preview the reel,
After watching the preview, you can edit the timeline if you want to make some changes
But if you want to go ahead and save, just click on save.

After saving, you can close the modal window while we apply the reel thumbnail automatically generated.

This is just as easy as it gets!

You might also wonder, why don’t I just go for the thumbnail?, it is also easy!

Here are some reasons why you should try the reels
