🎬 Featuring 🎬
💡 In this article, we explain how to promote your episodes using the Communication tab > Video Clips section on Ausha.
You can also create Video Clips in the episode creation form, but we recommend using the Communication tab as you’ll have access to all the features on Ausha!
How do I create and customize a Video Clip for an episode?
📺 With Ausha, you can make a teaser video for each of your episodes – we call it a Video Clip!
Here are the steps to create a Video Clip for an episode: 👇
Sign in and navigate to your show on Ausha.
Head to the Communication tab
Then, go to the Video Clips section.
Here, you will find all your created and draft Video Clips. Click + New Clip to make a teaser video for an episode.
💡 Based on your Ausha subscription plan, you have a certain amount of Credits every month to create Video Clips: 4 Clip Credits for a Launch subscription, 12 Clip Credits for a Boost subscription and 24 Clip Credits for a Supersonic subscription. To learn more, check out our article "How do Video Clip Credits work?".
After clicking + New Clip, a new window will appear, and you’ll be asked to specify “Which episode do you want to create a clip for? ”. Select the desired episode (Published, Scheduled or Draft) and click Continue.
⚠️ You can only create one Video Clip per episode. If you already created a Video Clip for a given episode, you won’t have the option of selecting that episode in the drop-down menu.
💡 If you want to create a new Video Clip for the same episode, please delete the old clip first on Ausha. Wait a few minutes after deleting a clip and then the desired episode will show up in the drop-down menu, so that you can create a new clip for that episode.
Now you’ll be taken to Ausha’s Video Clip creation interface. First, select the audio extract from the episode that you wish to transform into a video. 🧰 Move, widen, or narrow the selected area (in pink) using your mouse (with the Cursors) and then click Next.
💡 The upper timeline lets you walk through your episode’s entire audio track. The lower timeline lets you select the precise extract to clip.
💡 If you already determined the start and end timing of your desired extract for the video clip when you edited your episode, you can just enter the exact times at the bottom on the left!
Now indicate if you wish to create a Video Clip With Transcription or Without Transcription (in other words, with or without subtitles).
👉 If you choose to create a Clip with Transcription:
Be sure to select an audio extract with excellent sound quality (well-recorded, only one person talking, intelligibly and without any **background noise or music). Otherwise, our voice recognition tool will not work correctly and cannot generate accurate subtitles.
Subtitles are generated automatically. You can then review and correct them if there are mistakes. Do not add any extra words as the number of characters per line should ideally be less than 65 characters (otherwise, in the final version of the Clip, some of the text will be cut off).
Then select the Format(s) in which you wish to generate your Video Clip: Square, Landscape and/or Story (you can select multiple formats) and click Next !
💡 You will spend as many Video Clip Credits as the number of selected Formats. For example: if you generate a Clip in the Square and Story formats, you will spend two credits (for 2 Formats). To learn more, see this article: “How do Video Clip Credits work?".
💡 As mentioned previously, you can only create a Video Clip for an episode in one go. Thus, you must select all the Formats you will need now as you cannot add new formats later on for this same Clip.
Finally, customize your Video Clip’s Visual Appearance :
👉 Indicate whether you would like to add a Waveform (Wave that moves to the rhythm of the sound a.k.a Audiogram). If so, you can enter the color code for your waveform or select a color with the dropper.
💡 Your waveform options will be applied to all formats .
👉 Specify whether you would like to Display titles (ie. your show’s title and your episode’s title). If so, you can edit the titles for this Clip and also indicate the color code for the titles’ text.
💡 Your title options (text and color) will be applied to all formats.
👉 If you’d like, you may upload a new image (instead of the original episode image) by clicking Edit image (or Edit image for this format ).
💡 If your Video Clip has multiple formats, your updated image will only be applied to the selected format.
Here are the recommended dimensions for each format:
Square Format => 1400 x 1400 pixels, 10 MB max, JPG or PNG.
Landscape Format => 1334x700 pixels, 10 MB max, JPG or PNG.
Story Format => 407x723 pixels, 10 MB, JPG or PNG.
👉 Specify whether you would like the Image (the default image or your uploaded image specific to this format) to Take up all available space .
💡 If your Video Clip has multiple formats, the setting specifying if the image will “take up all available space” will only be applied to the selected format.
Then click on Generate Clip and wait a moment to see your video.
❌ Once your Clip is generated, you will not be able to make further edits.
👉 Double-check that you have selected the desired audio extract, your subtitles are error-free, and you’ve finished any desired customizations.
👉 If you wish to make changes to the generated Clip, you will have to delete it and recreate a Clip using any Clip Credits you may have left this month.
There you have it ! Now you know how to create and customize a Video Clip on Ausha in order to market your episodes and boost your listens! 🥳
