The Video Clip Widget is a way to add video clips to your Composition. Although the Video Clip Widget supports mp4, we highly recommend you use WebM video files.

Additionally, due to the nature of how browsers handle video clip playback, you cannot synchronize video clip playback with a Singular animation. For more information on using video clips in Singular, click here.

Remember, any underlined widget properties can be connected to a Control Node or a Data Node.


The Video Clip Widget does not currently support audio effectively in the output. If you need audio paired with your video, we recommend letting your encoder handle your video.


As seen above, select the "Video Clip" tab in the Property Panel to update this widget's following property types:



Video File -  Link to web hosted video file. We highly recommend using WebM files. This video link can be grabbed from almost anywhere online. Note that video files cannot be uploaded to your Singular Dashboard. If you need to host your own files, you can set up your own web server or use Amazon S3 cloud storage.

Volume -  Video volume

Autoplay -  Option to have the video autoplay

Loop -  Option to have the video loop

Object-Fit - Contain, Cover or Fill options for the video placement within its Bounding Box

Shift -  Video shifting

Opacity -  Video opacity

Playback Buttons - Playback buttons including   Start, Play, and Pause

  • How do you upload a video asset to Singular? I have tried .mp4 and .webm and all I get is "invalid file type"...??

  • Hi Michel, we are working to make it more apparent in the platform that video hosting is not supported in the Singular Dashboard. Video files have to be hosted elsewhere.
