How many scenes can I use in my video?

The maximum number of scenes you can have in one video is determined by your Colossyan plan.

Starter 5 scenes

Pro and Enterprise: 25 scenes

How long a scene can be?

The length of a scene depends on the voice you use and its character limit. Some voices support a 900 and others a 5000-character limit. So, a scene can range from 1 to 5 minutes in length. You can always check the character limit in the lower-left corner of the script box.

πŸ’‘ Pro tip: If you want to add some natural pauses to your script or make it longer, using SSML breaks could be really helpful! Find the list of voices supporting pauses here.

How can I use the same layout for multiple scenes?

  1. Arrange your assets in your scene

  2. Click the 3 dots in the upper-right corner of the scene thumbnail.

  3. Select

    1. Duplicate scene if you would like to use it in the same video only

    2. Save as Scene Layout if you would like to use it in other videos too

πŸ’‘ Pro tip: If you save or duplicate a scene that has a script, the script will be automatically saved or duplicated with the scene.

When you click on the + sign to add a new scene, you can browse your own saved scenes.

What does my final video look like?

The Preview will show you how any animations come together as well as how the actor presents their lines - reminding you to take note of body language and hand gestures. Lip sync and transitions will be added to the video after you hit the Generate button.
