The Video Background Widget is a way to add video clips to your Composition for an automatic looping background.

To learn how to add a Widget to your Composition, click here. Remember, any underlined widget properties can be connected to a Control Node or a Data Node.


The Video Background Widget does not support audio.


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.


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


Video File -  Link to public web hosted video file. We highly recommend using .webm files. This video link can be grabbed from almost anywhere online.

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

Shift - Adjust the position of the video within the widget bounding box when the aspect ratio of the widget doesn't match the aspect ratio of the video.
