You probably know by now that you can create tens of content pieces out of your pillar content very fast by simply dragging on the audio. If you would like to know how to get the most out of the ContentFries Trimmer, follow this guide: How to use ContentFries Trimmer to repurpose your Pillar Content

Good news is you can also add an intro and an outro in just few clicks.

The optional, but recommended requirement is that your intro, outro or CTA should have the same aspect ratio as your pillar content video. In case it doesn't meet this requirement, these video injections will be automatically resized with added black padding.

How to add an intro or an outro to all content pieces in the trimmer

You can set your intro by clicking on the "Intro" tool in the panel on the right hand side.

Next, select your intro from your library (2.a), or upload a new video (2.b).

Set global intro / outro

Once done, your intro will be automatically injected at the start of every new content piece.

If you would like to add an outro, follow the same steps using the "Outro" tool in the panel on the right hand side.

If everything is done correctly, you will see a green dot right next to the Intro / Outro label. This shows you that you have an active Intro / Outro in place and that it will be injected into every new content piece by default.

Intro / Outro is active

PLEASE NOTE: Your intro / outro will NOT be played in the preview player. Instead, it will be injected into the final content piece.

How to modify timings for your intro / outro

Chances are you need to insert your intro / outro to a specific time.

To do this, proceed as follows:

Click the "Video injections" button on the content piece where you need to change the intro / outro timings.

Change timings for intro / outro

Then, disable the "Run on start" option and drag the "Start delay" slider to the desired position.

Alternatively, you can copy & paste the desired pillar content time to have your intro injected at a specific timestamp.

To do that, fast-forward or rewind your video to the point where you want your intro to be injected (1). Then, copy the time (2) and paste it into the "Pillar content time" field (3).

How to add a CTA

You can add as many CTA's to your content pieces as you wish.

Every CTA needs to have a custom time, therefore you need to set your CTA manually to every content piece where you would like to have it.

Click the "Video injection" button on the content piece where you want to inject your CTA.

Inject CTA

Click the "Add CTA" button (1). A modal will appear where you can choose a CTA from either your video library (2a), or upload a new video that will be used as a CTA (2b).

Inject CTA - choose or upload

Your CTA will be injected to the start of the video by default. This is useful if you want to choose different intros for different content pieces. To set the time where your CTA should be injected to, simply drag the "Start delay" slider (1), or paste the desired time to the "Pillar content time" field (2).

How to disable an Intro / Outro for a particular content piece

Click the "Video injection" button on the content piece where you want to disable your intro / outro. Next, disable your Intro, Outro, or both.

How to choose a different Intro / Outro for different content pieces

Under the hood, CTA, intros and outros share the same mechanism. This makes it easy to choose a different intro / outro for a specific content piece.

Click the "Video injection" button on the content piece where you want to inject your CTA.

Go to Video injection section of your content piece

Disable your Intro, Outro, or both. Then, add a new CTA instead of your Intro / Outro and set the time for it. Follow the "How to add a CTA" section to see how to add a custom intro / outro as a CTA.
