There are several real estate video templates that can be used out-of-the-box, but we can also design our own templates if we wish. We can do this by using the online video editor, which allows us to drag and drop video elements into place.
A template can be created using a combination of text, photos, or even recorded video of the property. When combined with a logo, colors, and contact information of the realtor, it is possible to create a powerful video to highlight the listing on social media.
Next, we can generate unique videos for each property using the video API. The API can be invoked by any programming language or no-code tool such as Zapier. In this case, we are using the cURL bash program to invoke the API.
Using our real estate template as a basis, we simply call the REST API while specifying the template ID and any values we wish to add to the video. In this example, we're inserting two videos as well as some details about the property, including the address of the building and the name of the real estate agent. After running this example, we will receive an MP4 URL to our generated video.
It's that simple. You can imagine that the above command can be fully automated through the use of a script or a no-code scenario, which can be set up to generate hundreds of videos without the need for human intervention.
Due to the API being in the cloud, there is no need to install any software, or to ensure that it scales. This is all handled by Creatomate's video server infrastructure, which allows you to generate tons of videos concurrently and on-demand.
