festive scribes

love some of the festive scribe templates you posted in the blog - but HOW do we personalise and send them?

if I try to download I get no usable options on file format...

You need to import the scribe into VideoScribe.

How to import and export scribes with VideoScribe. Import and export your work as editable scribe files (.SCRIBE).

Export scribes

If you're on the canvas, press the save button, name your scribe and select the USB/ floppy disk icon. Choose a destination on your computer to save to.If you're on the project screen, select the project you want to save to your computer and select the USB/ floppy disk icon. Choose a destination on your computer to save to.Import scribe files

On the project screen, select the folder icon in the bottom right.Select your scribe on your computer and click 'Open'. The scribe will open in VideoScribe

same question here. What kind of sending process would you recommend for the personalized Video? upload it on youtube and provide link via email or are there other ways of doing it? thx in advance, Ed

For free users, youtube is probably the best option in my opinion. Paying members can render scribes to various video formats: instant answers: render scribes

I put mine up onto Vimeo and then sent a link...

I cannot IMPORT the festive scribe templates. I read MATTHEW COOK's reply above; however, since I'm a novice to Sparkol, some of the terminology doesn't make sense to me.

If you're on the canvas 

???? Canvas ???? Where is the canvas?       

Also, what is the PROJECT SCREEN? 

Sorry for the "kindergarten questions," but I haven't a clue concerning your instructions. Maybe it's the English vs American explanation.  When I download the templates from the EMAIL SENT TO ME and try importing them with my Video Scribe, I'm unable to open them from the DOWNLOADS on my iMac. I also saved the downloaded template into a separate folder on my computer and that also failed to open.

Please explain how to get the templates from my email into Video Scribe. 

Thanks, Elizabeth


1) when you have a scribe project open, the big blank white space on which you arrange your images and text is called the CANVAS
2) when you first login to videoscribe, the screen that shows thumbnail images of your previously saved scribe projects is the PROJECT SCREEN

3) you can't just click or double click the downloaded templates to open them.
4) watching the tutorial videos on the INSTANT ANSWERS page will help you learn the basics
