How long can I make my video?
You can create videos up to 10 minutes in length using Vimeo Create. When setting up the video in the creator, duration can be modified to fit a custom length by clicking "Duration: Auto" and then "Custom".
I don’t see a template for my kind of business, what do I do?
Although our collection of templates is always growing, there may not be a template specifically for your business. But no worries — all of our templates are customizable and depend highly on the footage and music you select. We recommend choosing a template from an industry close to yours (i.e., if you’re a cleaning company, select one of the “Services” templates) and customize from there. You’ll have the chance to edit out any footage or stock images that don’t fit your business.
Can I change or edit my video once the AI has created my video draft?
Yes! Think of the AI draft as the first draft of your video—the 1.0. Sometimes that will be all you need, but other times, you’ll want to make some tweaks. You can change anything, including uploading additional clips or images, removing clips or images, changing copy, and reordering the footage and images.
Can I add subtitles to videos I make on Vimeo Create?
You can add caption or subtitle files once your video has been added to your Vimeo account, just like you would with a regular Vimeo video. To add captions,, follow the instructions here.
Why is Vimeo taking jobs away from video professionals?
The tool is not intended to redirect businesses from hiring video professionals. Rather, we want to make the process of video creation less daunting to people who have never made videos themselves, because we believe that everyone should be able to make videos if they want to make an impact. As we grow our platform, the Vimeo community will continue to grow as well, and we see it encompassing video professionals, entrepreneurs, and marketers, all working in collaboration.
Can I make a video on Vimeo Create and then embed the video on my website to promote my business, even though it uses stock footage?
All stock videos and images available in Vimeo Create can be used for any videos you make using the tool and distributed through Vimeo (this includes embeds, and videos shared on social through our publish to social function).
Should I use a template or start from scratch?
It’s up to you! Each has its advantages. Our highly customizable templates allow you to piece together a video relatively quickly while still letting you insert your own elements (footage, images, copy, and more). Starting from scratch lets you execute on a specific vision, and is a great option if you know exactly what you’d like to do.
I keep getting an error message when I'm trying to customize templates. Why is this happening?
It's possible that a browser extension (such as AdBlock) is interfering with the template customization process. Try disabling the extension, or using the template in incognito mode or in another browser that does not have the extension enabled. If you're still seeing this issue, please reach out to us and we'll help you troubleshoot.
I received a music copyright notice when sharing to Youtube. What do I do?
Soundtracks in the Vimeo Create music library are indeed licensed for commercial use.
Videos can be posted to Social Media (Facebook/YouTube/Instagram, etc) without a problem as long as they are shared directly from Vimeo using our Publish to Social feature - this way we can ensure that the license is recognized (we have an automatic mechanism of whitelisting the tracks once the Vimeo Create videos are posted to Social Media directly from Vimeo).

- The limit in text editors is 90 characters max
