Adding an eye-catching video that plays while the user scrolls can lift your project and create a truly memorable experience. Video scroll is available as an element or an entire section.

Adding Video Scroll in Vev

πŸ‘πŸ½ Adding video scroll

As an element

  • From the top menu bar, click on the Add Menu (Shortcut: M)

  • Search for and select Video Scroll

  • Drag and drop on the canvas

As a section

  • From the top menu bar, click on the Add Menu (Shortcut: M)

  • Search for and select Video Scroll

  • Hold Alt and click Add section here on the top or bottom of the canvas

Uploading a Video to Vev

Unlike other video elements in Vev, you won't be able to select your video from the Video Library. To upload your video;

  • Click on the Drop video files here tile

  • Select your video from your computer

  • Open it

You can also simply drop it over this tile and your video will be uploaded.

One of the major pain points with a feature like this is page speed and performance. To help solve this, there is no time limit on your videos, but we generate a maximum of 12 frames per second of video (1 frame = 1 image), up to a maximum number of 300 frames. Meaning that if you upload a video that is 5 hours long, you get one image per minute until 05:00:00 (since 5 hours = 300 minutes).

Therefore you'll need a video that lasts at least 25 seconds long for optimal results, we are actively working to bring out a new version that will support shorter videos.

Styling a Video Scroll

As a section

  • Spacing top: Add padding to the top of the section in pixels or % to keep spacing between sections

  • Spacing bottom: Add padding to the bottom of the section in pixels or % to keep spacing between sections

  • Width: The width of a section can't be altered, it'll always be set to cover the 100%

  • Height: Set the height of the section in Pixels, % or set it to Auto so that it grows as you add content to it

  • Min H: Sets the minimum amount of height pixels a section can be. A red stippled horizontal line inside your section will reflect the minimum height

  • Clip content: Toggle to hide the content that goes beyond the section's edges

  • Resize to fill vertically: Click to set the section's height to 100%
