Shutterstock Integration

We have partnered with Shutterstock to make it easier to source royalty-free digital stock assets to use when creating videos. Assets include stock images, videos, and music tracks from PremiumBeat.

The option can be found under the upload panel:


After choosing an option, a window will appear with a button link to Shutterstock:


Clicking the button link will redirect users to Shutterstock where assets can be purchased. Once the assets have been purchased, they will then need to be uploaded back into the studio to use. Steps to upload assets into the studio can be found here.


Which license type is appropriate for my videos? Standard or Enhanced? 

In general, the Standard license will be sufficient for most projects for personal or internal use. It is capped at uses with an audience of 500,000 (or less) however it does not permit use in a multi-media production distributed via broadcast, cable network, OTT video service (e.g. Netflix, Hulu, Amazon), or in theaters. If there is a need for distributed broadcast please contact Shutterstock directly to obtain the proper license at

For commercial use of Shutterstock assets the correct license to obtain is the Shutterstock Enhanced License. This covers a use case in which Shutterstock assets are to be incorporated as elements of a digital template for sale or distribution. Please note, commercial use also requires the purchase of commercial rights from Vyond.

For more information about Vyond commercial rights please visit the link here.

Can Shutterstock assets be used in only one video? Several? Unlimited?

Shutterstock offers a royalty-free perpetual license. There is no cap on uses.

Can assets be used in a video by a production company for the benefit of a third party client? 

The license itself is not assignable, but the end-user may be a third party. For this use case, please ensure that Shutterstock’s Enhanced License is obtained.
