I am trying to add a video to my Edge Animate project, but every time I complete the process, it doesn't show up in the library. Here is the process I follow:
1. In the library panel, I click the + sign next to the video tab
2. The browse dialog box pops up and I find the video and double click it to add it to the Edge Animate library
3. Edge Animate pauses for a second, then appears to be ready to continue, but the video never shows up in the library
The movie was created in Premiere Pro. I exported it as an H.264 high def movie. The file is 760 MB. The title of the movie is Yellowstone.mp4.
I am able to upload other movies which are the same H.264 codec with the .mp4 extension.
Is there a size limit on video files for Edge Animate?
I am not sure of what the limitation of loading a movie is within Edge Animate, but at first thought - 760mb for even a browser to load is too heavy.
You are better off uploading it to a personal youtube channel, then feed the url into a video tag within Edge Animate.
When you add any Video to the animate project, the video gets copied from the location you selected to the Edge composition folder.
As your video is very large-sized, it takes quite a time to copy it. And if copying fails internally, then it won't show in the library.
First save the composition somewhere.
And then manually, copy all such large-sized videos to the composition's media folder.
Then automatically it will show under Vidoe Library.
