Getting Started

Let's introduce you to some of the key concepts and the workflow of our video editing API

Key Concepts

There are few concepts we'll use throughout the API: assets , render schemas and renders


Assets are the original videos, images or audio files that you upload. Upon upload every asset will be stored as an object inside VEED API. It will be given a unique id, and have other metadata attached to it. An example of such metadata could be the duration or sizeof the asset, as well as other preprocessing options such as audio cleaning or transcribing speech (for supported types).

Once an asset is created, it can be referenced inside a render schema

Render Schema

A render schema (sometimes called a 'render object') is the recipe file that describes which edits should be applied. It has an expressive and easy-to-follow structure, so you can tell us, in a few lines, how you'd like to design and edit your videos.

The building blocks of a render schema are called 'elements', and you can read more about them here‚Äč


The render is the final resulting video that comes after all the edits have been made


Assets (your original files) and render schema (a set of instructions) are used together to create the final result - render
