How do I create a movie via Integromat?

Sending the request

  1. Head to Integromat ↗ and hit Create a new scenario
  2. Click the plus (+) and search for "Bannerbear"
  3. Choose Create a Movie from the list
  4. Under Connection, select your project from the drop-down menu or Add your project API Key
  5. Enter the movie object Width and Height
  6. Click Add item under "Inputs" and add the necessary inputs in the order you want them to appear
  7. Choose the Transition effect and enter the Soundtrack URL (optional)
  8. Enter the webhook URL (see "Handling the response" below)
  9. Click OK when you're done and Run Once to test it.

Handling the response

  1. Create a new scenario with a Custom Webhook
  2. Click Add to create a new webhook or select one from the drop-down menu
    Note: This will generate a webhook URL, which you should copy and paste into the "Webhook URL" field in the Create a Movie module mentioned in the above scenario.

    When the animated gif is rendered, you'll be notified via this webhook URL, triggering the process to begin / continue to the next step.
  3. If necessary, run the Create a Movie module once to help the custom webhook determine the structure of the payload it should expect. 
  4. Click OK and continue building your scenario to your preference

Alternative to Webhooks

If creating a separate scenario is a hassle, consider ditching the webhook for the Sleep tool, which allows you to delay the scenario flow long enough for the Movie rendering to complete.

Note: This may cause issues if the delay is too short, causing the scenario to continue before the movie has been fully rendered.

  1. Add a new module and search for Tools
  2. Select the Sleep action and enter the Delay in seconds
  3. Click OK and continue building your scenario to your preference
