What is B-Roll?

“In film and television production, B-roll, B roll, B-reel or B reel is supplemental or alternative footage intercut with the main shot.”

So, in plain english - it’s the footage you add on top of your main video to make it more interesting and visually appealing.

How Do I Use One Click B-Roll Addition?

Go to your Storylines project, and highlight in the transcript where you would like b-roll to be added. Find a video you would like to layer on top of your "A-roll", or your primary video. Then, drop in a YouTube link to the pop-up window.

We’ll grab that video for you, and include it in your final export. If you’re finishing the project in your own editing software, that b-roll will appear in your sequence/timeline in Adobe, FCP, & Resolve.
