Step 1: Media Selection Overview
The Wochit Media Library is constantly updated with content sourced from our media partners including Getty, AP, AFP, and Reuters. As a Wochit user, we propagate the right to use the media from our gallery in your editorial videos.
Wochit also enables you to bring in media from your desktop or Youtube, create Infographics (Maps, Website snapshot), and use social posts from Twitter and Instagram
Media Search: The Search Media button on the Project Timeline takes you right to the full Wochit Media Library. From here you can search for media using keywords to add videos, images, Tweets, Instagram posts, and GIFs! Sort them by recency or relevance, Editorial or Creative, Videos or Images and also filter content from our different media sources, date taken or resolution.
Selected Media: Or The Lightbox is where all the assets you’ve selected for your story are collected. You’ll notice it next to the Done button on the top right corner of the screen. The number attached to the icon indicates the number of assets collected so far. Once you add assets from the Library you’ll notice them in your Lightbox.
Story Based Search: If you’re creating a video to go along with an article you already published the Story based search option located on the top left of the screen is a useful tool. Paste a URL and press Go! and Wochit will scrap the story for relevant keywords to pull together assets that could be helpful in putting together your story.
My Uploads: My Uploads allows you to use your own media, and media uploaded by your team, in a Wochit video. You can either upload it from your computer or use a YouTube link to import a clip. You can also use My Uploads to add infographics to your video. Simply drag an image or video from your desktop over the Media Library to test it out.
When you’re done return to the Timeline with the Done button in the top right corner.
