Step 1: Create an Event

You need to answer three questions to create an event.

Who is it for?

Custom video montages are best suited to close friends and family members. Just enter the first and last name of the recipient.

What is the occasion?

The next step is to decide what kind of occasion or milestone you want to capture and turn into video montages for your loved ones!

You can choose from

  • Birthdays
  • Engagements
  • Weddings
  • Graduation
  • Get well soon
  • Surprising the groom or bride
  • Fathers Day
  • Mothers day
  • Welcoming a new baby
  • Holidays or any other special event that would make for a great Custom Video Montage

When is the Big Day?

Select the date of the event from the Custom Video Montages calendar.

When are contributions due?

You'll want to set up a date and time for friends and family to submit their clips. It is recommended that you give them several days to submit their videos before the event.


Step 2: Invite Family and Friends

It's time to invite your family and friends by sharing the event link via email or you may copy the invitation link and send it via text message, Messenger, WhatsApp, or whichever way works best for you.

You can invite as many people as possible to participate in the video, the more, the better! Make it clear that they won't tell the recipient to surprise her.

Invited people will be able to easily record or upload their video messages and pictures by clicking the event link.

Step 3: Collect Videos and Organize Them

All submitted video clips and photos are collected into one event gallery for easy organization. You can preview and arrange them in any order. You can add the video clips to your timeline easily using the drag and drop feature.

Only video clips added to your timeline will be included in the video montage.

The app will then give you an automatically created video montage that has everyone’s messages combined.


Step 4: Create Your Masterpiece and Customize Your video

The creator of a video montage has all the options necessary for adding their personal touch, including setting the duration of each clip as well as choosing who they want to be featured in the video.

One way to give your custom video montage more meaning is by adding beautiful photos and background music.
