Video Generation


To generate a video with the Placid REST API:

  1. Create an API project or add the API integration to your project in Placid
  2. Create and design your template(s)
  3. Send your data and customizations to the API
  4. Poll the GET endpoint for status updates or use a webhook to get the generated video
