Theme Settings: Setting colors and basic reel settingsAbove the Design & Content section of the reel builder, are the Theme Settings. Here you can edit the colors and general settings that will control the overall look of the reel. You can also instantly preview the color and general settings with a theme preview.
The theme settings box is closed by default when you open the Reel Builder. Double click the gray bar to access the controls.
Set reel colors
Light theme - White background, dark text, gray primary elements (audio controls, waveform, etc.), and blue links. This theme will require a logo that looks best on a white background.
To create the look of a black or white background with a colored biography block, start with the color you prefer in the picker and then select a ”light black” or “barely white” by dragging the open circle selector around in the color field. See below for an example of how a light black background with purple undertones creates a dark purple biography block color, and a “barely white” background creates a light purple biography block.
You will always have more options with a dark background simply because there are fewer shades of "barely white" to choose from before the background apepars obviously gray or pastel.
If you prefer no color tint at all, be sure to drag the color selector as far as it will go to the left to ensure pure gray tones. Then go all the way to the top for pure white (FFFFFFFF) and all the way to the bottom for pure black (000000FF).
Note: The color picker includes two additional letters/numbers at the end of the standard 6-digit HEX color code. These two digits represent the transparency of the color, which can be controlled by dragging the slider just above the HEX code left and right (transparency is indicated by the visible checkerboard pattern showing behind the color). FF at the end of the HEX means it’s 100% opaque and 00 means it’s 100% transparent.
