I'm really happy to say that the Zazzle Product Stager V9 is now out.

This is the one that lets you choose one of the texts in your graphic / template as an end-animation in videos.

After the normal animation sequence, the chosen text (if you've chosen any) is brought up to twice its size in the center of the graphic. The length of the pause before the video ends depends on how many characters are in the text.



I think the timing is long enough to let people read it before the video restarts (on those places that automatically loop videos).

You set which, if any, text to set as the end-animation in the Text Edit pane (toggle the Editing panes to see it).

With this you can make a great "call to action" and this will improve the engagement you get!

Try it here - just put in your store id and away you go!

Feedback / suggestions to consider are always welcome

Note that for the duration of the animation, the text is outlined in white to help make it readable no matter what images you're using.


If you try it at the link I gave ^^^ a random template will be chosen. If it's one without text, hit the Clear stage button, scroll to the very bottom to the Templates Library and choose a different one.

This might interest some. I have a generic version of the Product Stager that can be used to make videos of ANY images.

Here's what you need to know:

🔹 As long as they're square, they can be used with any of the templates
🔹 They need to be publicly accessible online so you can provide the links to them
🔹 They only need to be available while you make your video
🔹 This is the link you need for the generic Product Stager
🔹 Just paste the image links into the Pre-staging Area to use them
🔹 Make sure you have enough for the template you intend to use

Enjoy!

Just changed it to a 1280x&720
A couple of people reported not being able to see it on Windows Firefox but ok in Chrome. I'm on a Mac and it was ok in both.

I changed it anyway

Edited to add: The person having issues said this

Ok I have it running now. Turns out it was a FF Security setting. Enhanced Tracking Protection was set to "scrict" I changed it to standard and lo. and behold, it works.

Further edited to add: Fixed the issue completely. Instead of using the one I uploaded to Facebook, I uploaded it to YouTube and now use that as the source. So people can keep their strict tracking settings and still be ok.
