Carousels

Carousels are fast and easy-to-create collections of your published videos. You can design a Carousel entirely within Vocal Video, and easily embed on your website or share via a public page. This guide gives you step-by-step instructions on how.

In the top navigation bar, click on Galleries. Then select + New Gallery and Carousel. From there you can click + Add Videos, browse all of your published videos and choose which videos you’d like to add to your Carousel.

Vocal Video will automatically create a preview of your Carousel on the right side of the page, and you can reorder the videos as needed by dragging and dropping on the right.

Design

Click on the Design, for a list of options to customize your Grid.

Video Cards

Video cards are customizable previews of your videos, which have the option to pull quotes from your videos. These cards become the building blocks of all Vocal Video galleries. You’ll see that the video card options include the ability to include pull quotes from your respondents. Once you click one of those, you’ll be able to customize the card height, style of quotation marks, featured quote text size and whether or not to show attributions.

Editing Quotes

Quotes can be edited by hovering over the quote in the preview, or by choosing Edit Feature Quote by hovering over the ellipsis to the right of the Video Name in the Videos Menu.

This will open a window with a preview of the video transcript. This makes it easy to find a sentence or two to use as your Featured Quote. Attribution, and photo of your customer or their logo can be added as well.

Carousel Settings

Carousel settings can be updated and previewed live on the right.

Thumbnails

The format of your thumbnails can be updated to fit the part of your website you plan to use the carousel in.

Colors

Your gallery colors will automatically pull from the Account Branding colors under Settings. You can update the Gallery title, Gallery description, featured quote, quote accent, attribution text color, Card background color and Card background gradient can all be updated for each gallery. 

Fonts

You can choose from 24 fonts for your heading and secondary fonts in the gallery.

Logo

The location of your account’s logo can be update from top left, above title or removed entirely.

Corners and Shadows

Choose corner types and whether to include shadows behind your cards.

Layout

Title alignment can be updated, along with the number of columns and max width of each card.

Background

Select a custom background to set off the videos in your Carousel best.

Title

Add a title and description to your public gallery page.

Share

Now you can easily share your public Gallery Page with a link, or directly to Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.

Embed

Your carousel can also be added directly to your website with our embed code. The gallery backgrounds are transparent with the embed codes to fit seamlessly into your existing design. Any revisions you make to the videos in your carousel will automatically update the video in your embed as well.

Additional options

In the top right corner you can get quick links to view the public page, rename your Carousel, edit the URL for the public page, duplicate the Carousel and make a different version, Duplicate or Delete.
