Video/Gif generation

How to generate an animated banner - Abyssale REST API
  • The template type must be animation
Generating videos looks like the HTML5 generation process, except:
  • You can send a video as background
  • This feature is available for all plans

As described on this workflow, the process looks like the Generate Multi-format Images. The only difference is the file that is sent back is a mp4 video.

The only thing you have to do to create an animated banner is to fill the image_file_type parameter with the value mp4 or gif.
For exemple:
"image_file_type": "mp4"
You can optionally send a video as background. Fill the video_root element with the parameter video_url. The video_url needs to be a valid mp4 video.
For exemple:
"video_root": {
"video_url": "https:://"


  • The video_url accepts only mp4 videos. The maximum file size is 100Mo.
  • Video can be added only on the video_root element
  • The generated video extension is mp4.
  • The video will be middle centered on the root element.
  • If the video size is too small we'll scale it to fit in the root container.
Reminder: As the video is added on the video_root element every other elements are on top of it and ll cover the video.
