Introducing Shakr's Universal Media Type (UMT)

Have you ever found the perfect template, then realized you can't use it because you don't have enough videos to fill all the slots? Over half of the video templates in the Creative Market either uses Videos only or uses a mixture of Images and Videos. Our team heard your feedback and now we are pleased to announce Shakr's UMT!

How it works

With this new feature, you can now use images in place of any video slot in a Shakr template! This is a gamechanger for many of our users who do not have their own videos and do not want to fill those areas with stock video.

To take advantage of this feature simply insert an image into a slot that requires a video. You'll get a familiar pop up box to add some effects to the image like panning and zooming, you can even preview your clip within this window. Once you're happy with your new video clip, click Confirm, and you're all done! Shakr will automatically create and insert a video clip with your desired effect to fill in the video slot perfectly!
