Previewing Your Program

As you create your program, we recommend that you preview your work as you go so that you can see how the content you configure—text, media, voice-overs, and more—plays in the video. Previewing is important for a number of reasons:

  • You'll be able to see how each scene plays and how the scenes transition from one to another.

  • You'll hear the voice-over and the selected background music.

  • You'll view the media assets that you have uploaded.
  • If your program includes dynamic messaging or media that you've implemented with 1:1 personalization or audience messaging, you will only be able to see the variations when previewing.

  • After each preview, you can make any required adjustments and tweaks.
  • If you preview and make adjustments as you work, you'll be able to QA your program more efficiently (before publishing).

(Optional) If you have configured dynamic messaging, you can select a value from the relevant drop-down list to see how the video will look to a specific audience. In this way, you can test samples of your data to make sure that your audiences see the relevant content.
▶ In the example below, the preview will show content relevant only to viewers who hold a Gold credit card.
