You made the first step of deciding to create a Tolstoy. That's great! But how do you start?

Whether you're ready to film on the spot or want to upload videos you recorded months ago, there are many different ways to create video content for your Tolstoy!

Here's how:

  1. To start, click on + Create New Tolstoy in the top left of your screen.

  2. Then choose Make my own.

  3. Here, you can select your preferred method for creating video content.

  • Record Video: Record a video on the spot through your computer or phone camera.

  • Record screen: Record your screen activity to walk users through your website or app.

  • Upload video file: Upload a pre-recorded video of any file type directly into the system.

  • My library: Upload from a selection of videos that have already been uploaded. This will be empty when you're making your first Tolstoy!

  • Choose a stock video: Choose from one of our stock videos to find relevant video content that works for you.

Congrats! You're on your way to creating an interactive Tolstoy video that can be shared or published in whichever way you choose. Check out our help articles on Publishing and Sharing Your Tolstoy when you're ready to take that next step.
