Templates of each category are designed in accordance with this category's topic; they contain several slides with backgrounds, animation, stickers, and empty slots for your content. You can insert videos or images into these slots and adjust the time for each slide so that it matches the length of the videos. Then, you can add your music or choose a track from the built-in library of Fastreel.

Though this mode makes video creation quick and fun, it has one disadvantage: you cannot change the effects for a certain template. Unfortunately, there are no opportunities of replacing backgrounds, removing stickers, or changing animation. However, this inconvenience is compensated with the number of templates; it is possible to find one that will entirely suit you.
