Is there anyway to add another overlay to expand the current setup. I have some additional video clips that I want to use. Check below.

Current default setup is;
>Start > Start.mp4
>Before Photo 1
>Photo 1

What I want to do is;
>Start - Start.mp4
>Before Before Photo 1 - Smile!.mp4
>Before Photo 1 - Are you ready?.mp4
>After Photo 1 - You are awesome!.mp4
>Before Before Photo 2 - Now Blow a Kiss.mp4
>Before Photo 2 - Lets get ready!.mp4
>After Photo 2 - You are hot!!.mp4

    You can use Photo 1, 2, 3, 4 for what you are referring to as After Photo.
    There is no "Before Before Photo". You should just combine the Before Photo
    and Before Before Photo into a single video and use the Before Photo.
    So it will look like...
    >Start - Start.mp4
    >Before Photo 1 - Smile! & Are you ready?.mp4
    >Photo 1 - You are awesome!.mp4
    >Before Photo 2 - Now Blow a Kiss & Lets get ready!.mp4
    >Photo 2 - You are hot!!.mp4

    I assume you know you can create your own collection
    of video clips and each one can use the full list
    of options when they are played... I think you are wanting a After selection
    for each photo that is not currently on the list... (?)

    You could do this...
    For the example you have

    After Photo 1 - You are awesome!.mp4 Before Before Photo 2 - Now Blow a Kiss.mp4

    Why not have your You are awesome! video
    with a second between and the Now Blow A Kiss
    connected together as a single clip and use
    the Before photo 2 selection - that would do the same
    without changing the software adding more selections
    that will cause issues for those who do not understand
    that After photo is the same as Before selection.

    That is actually a good idea. Thanks both of you.

    Do you think John will expand the layout in the near future? Customize the layout even more than following a default layout. Just a suggestion.

    Thanks again.

    ??? I don't think you understand...
    with the built in layout creator you can create a layout
    any way you want not using one of the built in layouts.

    I always Create a New layout from scratch
    and you can review 100's of my layouts
    on my web site gallery here
    and below the Gallery links are samples

    Many of the wedding layouts look alike because
    many of my wedding clients do not give any suggestions
    for colors/theme/design - but most of all other layouts
    are created different.

    I have also helped 100's of Sparkbooth users
    create custom layouts and learn how easy it is to do
    in the layout editor.

    Did you review the Tutorials on photo layouts ?

    You are requesting John do something that is
    already available to every user of the software.

    I think I might have confused you. When i say layout I meant the videoclips workflow layout not the one on the link you provided. Basically rather than having a videoclip workflow that allows you to customize it fully, it is still constricted on a set of rules. It is a good idea to combine video1 and video2 = video 3 but i find that a waste of time. Plus it would look ugly having too many things written on one video for the guest to read. You want your animations videoclip to pop out not bore them to death by reading. lol

    I am sure that you have helped hundred to thousands to millions. Give yourself a good pat on the back.

    Anyway, gives John an idea to allow users to fully customize the videoclips instead of following a set of constricted rules. It makes the mirror booth more engaging. Perhaps in the next version. For now, ill stick with the basic videoclip workflow.
