Create and share stories

Connecting your highlights helps you unlock the true potential of Grain: video narratives.

Updated over a week ago

Now that you’ve created some Highlights, you can begin linking them together to create a Story.

When you put together your Highlights, you can create visually appealing stories that would have otherwise taken days or weeks to create. Grain makes it simple: no Final Cut Pro needed.

Grain Stories are created to influence the product roadmap, to close more deals, or to rally cross-functional teams around the voice of the customers.

Create a story from scratch

Navigate to the 'Stories' tab on the left toolbar.

Once you’re in, you can add the basic details including Title, Description, and Background. Feel free to #tag your Story to access it easily at a later point in time.

Now comes the fun part: just click on “+ Add New Highlight” to drop the highlights into your Story. You can add as many highlights as you’d like and group the highlights based on the context using Sections.

Here’s an example:

Share a story

Is your Story ready? Just click on ‘Share’ to share it with your team/customers. That’s it!

Create a story from your meeting recording

You can create or add to a Story directly from your meeting. Here’s how to do it:

1. Navigate to your highlights tab

2. Click on the three-dot menu next to your desired highlight

3. Select 'Add to Story' and choose where to add your highlight

Pro tip: If you’re looking to convert all the highlights from a recording into a Story, then open the recording and click the three-dot menu on the top right and hit “Add all Highlights to Story”. All the highlights will be stitched together — ready for you to share.
