Main steps to modify the template
I recommend changing the resolution to Quarter or Third. That will ensure you will get a smoother workflow.
1. Template structure
*** Change this folder ***
This is the most important folder in the project. It contains all the compositions you can change in the template.
Tablet Settings Folder
This is where you setup your tablet – Startup Text, Startup Logo, Date, Time, Favicon, User name.
This is where you type your search query. If you're using the voice search template you will see also compositions called '1st search – voice over'. This
is where you place your recorded voice over.
Cards are what appear after you perform a search. When you first launch Goodle now, it has 2 preset cards that show up. This can be changed in the folder called '0 Startup Cards'.
After setting up the first cards, move on to answering the rest of your queries. Note that the cards number 2 & 3 have an add-on of thumbnail images. Thumbnail number 7 (In card number 3), is the thumbnail that is clicked later on in the template to launch the media that follows it. So it makes sense to have this thumbnail relate to that media (watch the preview video to see an example).
The final cards are follow me cards, which can also be changed to anything you'd like. You can also replace any social media icon you'd like with your own.
Logos + Tagline
This is where you place your featured company logo. It will appear throughout the template in 3 places – The 1st answer card, the 1st media description card & the closing logo. (In the preview video the feature company is Videohive).
The tagline appear together with the ending logo.
Media + Description
This is where you place your media - can be images or videos. Each one
of the media placeholders has a description composition as well.
Webscreens + Description
This is where you place you web site screenshots. It can of course be also
any type of photo apart from a webpage. Of course each image has a
description as well.
If you're planning to insert screen captures, I recommend using screen capture by Google (works in Google chrome, I show how to use it in the Music
If you purchased Midnight in Tokyo, insert it into the composition inside the music folder and it will automatically be cut and mixed to sync with the template. If you're using a different song, drag it into the main timeline.
- Inside this composition you'll find the background comp. In the effects control change the Ramp settings to choose your own color.
That's it, you're done.
