  • How can I import my personal background in the new version?

  • Hi Maurizio,

    Great question! You can add a personal background using the Import Asset function. We have a great article on importing assets here: https://help.vyond.com/hc/en-us/articles/115005664206

    You'll want to click on the Upload button in the Studio, select your file from your directory, and then drag and drop it into the stage after it's done uploading. Re-size the image on the stage and you're good to go!

    If you'd like to use the background in other videos, or call it up as needed in your current project, you may want to consider saving the scene as a template. Right click on the scene (in the timeline) and select "Save as Template" and it will appear in your personal template library. You can watch a video on that here if you're interested: https://help.vyond.com/hc/en-us/articles/115005896083-Tutorial-Video-Templates

    Thanks for your question - take care, Maurizio!
