How to Create Product Videos using an API?

To generate product videos using the API, start by creating a video template. Next, use Creatomate's REST API to populate the template with product data, such as images, prices, and features, producing unique videos for each item.

Create a product video template

To automate the process of creating product videos, begin by designing a template that will serve as the foundation for all your videos. Within this template, you can designate placeholder elements, such as text and media, which will be replaced with different content for each product.

There are many ready-made templates you can use, but you can also create your own video designs using the online editor. The editor offers lots of customization options to match your brand's style and meet your specific needs.

curl -s -X POST \
  -H 'Authorization: Bearer Your-API-Key' \
  -H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
  --data-binary @- << EOF
  "template_id": "Your Product Video Template ID",
  "modifications": {
    "Product": "Nike RN Flyknit",
    "Description": "Unleash your inner athlete with these high-performance running shoes.",
    "Normal-Price": "$ 109.99",
    "Discounted-Price": "$ 89.99"
    "Image": ""

Set up the API integration

Once your template is ready, you can generate product videos using the REST API. The API is accessible through a programming language such as Javascript, PHP, Ruby, and Python, as well as no-code platforms like Zapier, making it easy to use for marketers and developers alike.

Generating product videos is as simple as sending a single POST request. Just include the template ID and the content you wish to insert, such as titles, images, prices, and other relevant information. Once the request is sent, you'll receive a URL where you can find the generated video.
