What is a Theme?

A theme dictates the overall look and feel of the video experience. It includes motion graphic elements, transitions, and other visual elements.

Themes give you the following advantages:


All users, even those without design skills, can create a high-quality, professional video experience.


As the theme you select is used for all the scenes in your video, the result is visual consistency. This consistency means, for example, that the same animation styles are used throughout all the scenes without any extra effort on your part.

Below is the collection of SundaySky themes from which you can select when creating your video. For each theme, you can see an example of how a video scene looks when that theme is applied.
By default, the Modern theme is applied when creating a video from scratch.

The Modern theme is clean, simple, and modular. With basic shapes and smooth animation, it is ideal for brands that prefer simplicity and a clean design.  

The Lite theme is fluid, transparent, and cinematic. Recommended for when you want to showcase media assets (images and video footage), the visuals will usually appear in full screen with text on top.

The Elements theme is fun, playful, and dynamic. A variety of media sizes and geometrical design elements work together to create a lively composition.


The Waves theme is elegant and sleek. With lots of flowing animation, there is a smooth feel to all the video elements that populate the screen.

The Hoops theme, round and harmonious, strikes the right balance between on-screen text and images. If your brand relies on icons as part of the visual language, they will display at their largest when using this theme.   The Minimal theme is minimalistic and lean. With a modular composition and more muted transitions, this theme works well for brands that have strong visual assets that need very little treatment.

The Craft theme is bold and urban, with a rugged personality. It's great for brands that cater to a young and trendy audience.

  The Limbo theme is slick, vivid, and flexible. With this no-frills theme, bold text and images tell the full story. When you want your brand colors to shine through, this is the ideal theme.


The Glyph theme is brimming with energy and kinetic typography. Its sharp animations and letter-based cutouts provide a unique and modern look for your assets.
