As soon as you export a video, your iStock media count is reduced by the amount of iStock used in the video.

When generating a video, the AI will select and incorporate the best stock media available from our premium libraries (Storyblocks and Shutterstock) as well as iStock. You can boost your plan, upgrade to a higher plan, or purchase an add-on to get more iStock.

You can limit or remove iStock to have it replaced with premium media, for which you have unlimited access, with one of these methods:

1. Limiting iStock from the drop-down in the workflow modal:

You can select and set the amount of iStock that should be used from the iStock drop-down given in the workflow modal for all workflows.

Step 1: Select a workflow.


Step 2: Select the amount of iStock you would like to use in the video.


2. Prompting directly:

You can add a line in your video generation prompt to control the amount of the Stock.


Tip: Adding specific instructions using "Settings:" indicates to the AI that this part is important.

Here are all the prompts you can use to control iStock usage:

  1. Don't use iStock

  2. Use fewer iStock media

  3. Use iStock normally

  4. Prefer using iStock when can

  5. Only use iStock

Prompting the magic box if your video is generated

If your video is already generated, you can prompt the magic box to control the number of iStock used in the video.

For example:

  • Don't use iStock


Preview your video once the changes have been applied!
