From Remote URL

VideoEditor SDK supports adding custom overlays directly from remote URLs instead of downloading the asset beforehand. For an example of how to download remote resources in advance consult this section of the guides.

Load overlay from remote URL#

For the custom overlay we construct an Overlay object providing the remote resource URL and a display name for the overlay. In addition we set the initial blend mode to hardLight, an exhaustive list of available blend modes can be found in the API docs.

Add overlay to asset catalog#

In order to add the new overlay to our asset catalog, we first add the default items and then append our overlay to the overlays array.
