Credit calculation

The number of monthly credits you have will determine how many videos or images you can produce each month. Images always cost one credit. The credit cost of a video varies depending on the resolution, frame rate, and length of the video.

How to calculate video credit cost

You can always see how much a render costs by opening a template in the editor and clicking "Single Export" in the upper right corner.

It's calculated as follows. A credit gives you 100 million pixels of output, with a minimum of one credit per render. A video rendered at 720p (1280 by 720) with a frame rate of 25 fps and a length of 10 seconds, is a total of 1280 * 720 * 25 * 10 pixels, or about 230 million pixels, so 2.3 credits.

To put it another way, 10,000 credits are equivalent to:
(10,000 * 100,000,000) / (1280 * 720 * 25) = 43,402 seconds ≈ 12 hours of video

Or, if you're rendering at 60 frames per second:
(10,000 * 100,000,000) / (1280 * 720 * 60) = 18,084 seconds ≈ 5 hours of video

Set a project budget

Creating a project budget will allow you to allocate credits to individual projects on a monthly basis. Upon reaching the limit, you won't be able to create any more renders for that project until the following month, when it's automatically reset. Set up your project budget in the dashboard under "Project Settings."

Click the switch after Enable to activate the limit. You can then set an upper credit limit for the remainder of the month. In case you would like to reset the credit usage before the month ends, click "Reset Now".
