Default Video Settings
You can set the look and feel of all of your automatically generated video drafts by navigating to Settings > Default Video Settings. This guide walks you through all of the available options.

The first two colors in your Color Palette are used for the text and logo scenes in our Video Themes, as well as accents when a new draft video is created. The additional two colors will be easily accessible in the Video Editor to use as you customize your video drafts. As you edit each individual video, you can override these default colors as desired.
You can add your brand's hex color code or use our Color Picker to choose the right color from your website.
