Create a Looping Video Background

In this lesson, we will explore how to make any video file function as a background element – as well as how to layer additional assets overtop for more unique visualizations.

  • To get started, go ahead and upload the build along experience to your account or if you’d prefer you can also work off an existing experience that you have.
  • With the background video selected, toggle the “Autoplay” check box on, and then open the settings panel by clicking the gear icon. Here, you can also toggle on “loop forever” and “hide player controls.”
  • Now, you can turn on the visibility of the satellite image and add an animation like a Ken Burns effect to this image to have some contrasting movement.

As you can see in the preview, using just those two simple tricks, our piece is already more interesting than if it was just a static image. Feel free to experiment with different images, videos and animations to create your own visual story. And if you have any questions about incorporating video into your Ceros experience, be sure to reach out to our support team via the chat widget.
