How can I set my favorite Theme in 1-Click Video Story?

This is really easy as shown here.

If you have already used 1-Click Video Story and your project is loaded, you will have access to the theme selection window. Otherwise, please open a project in Express or Advanced Editing and drag one or more photo or video assets into the storyboard or timeline. Now open the theme selection box in Nero Video by clicking on the ‘Themes’ button top of the timeline/storyboard. The default template is shown top right.

1-Click_default

Go to the theme selection list left hand side and select a new theme (e.g. Nostalgic-2). Your choice will be shown top right as a new theme for default selection.

1-Click_select new

Set the mark for using the selected theme as a new default theme in 1-Click Video Story. The new default theme (Nostalgic-2) will be set and will now be used as the default template any time you utilize 1-Click Video Story.

What is ‘1-Click Video Story’ and how can I use it?

‘1-Click Video Story’ is a comfortable way to create professional slideshows and movies just via drag & drop, and one click, only. From Nero 2019 the feature is accessible via the drop zone in Nero Start and via the drop zone in Nero Video.

This unique feature helps creating polished movies and slideshows in a snap. Simply drag & drop photos and videos to the drop zone in Nero Video and select ‘1-Click Video Story’. All files will automatically be loaded into a pre-designed video project complete with intro and outro sequence, effects, captions and matching music. Simply preview the video project, export, and share it.

‘1-Click Video Story’ works with landscape footage (TV) as well as vertical photos and videos (smartphones). So, if you drag only vertical footage into the drop zone, Nero Video will automatically load your project into a vertical video project. If you drag & drop just landscape or mixed footage (landscape and vertical), Nero Video will open a TV landscape project and automatically remove the black bars in your vertical footage.

Tip: By default ‘1-Click Video Story’ uses a preloaded template. However, you have an easy option to use any of the theme templates in your product as your favorite personalized template for ‘1-Click Video Story’. For more details, see Nero KnowHow 00140.

Take a look at the easy steps below.

What is the ‘Effect Drop Zone’ in Nero movie themes?

Nero Video includes a whole range of new MovieThemes, where intro/outro as well as the main part of the movie have seen quite some upgrades in design.

A unique feature within the intro and outro sequence of the new MovieTheme templates is a so called ‘effect drop zone’.

Drop Zone 1

In Intro and Outro, you now can better personalize your movie by simply dragging photos or videos into the preview window or timeline.

The dropped asset will automatically be integrated into the animation pattern of the template giving your video a real wow effect.

Effect Drop Zone_2

Also, note that the main movie part now has integrated dedicated video effects per template like focus/out of focus (Tilt Shift), nostalgic effects, slow-motion, etc.

There is no need to know a lot about video editing, except that you need to decide which source videos or photos you want to use for your movie and where you might want to trim them. The rest is all done automatically via the pre-designed movie themes.

This way you can create vertical masterpieces in no time for sharing and watching on your mobile device.
