Apart from the specific settings that exist on all slide types, there are few concepts that exist on multiple slide types or almost all of them.
You can easily change the duration of your slide to perfectly fit your messaging. This is done with a slider that lets you change the duration in 0,5-second increments. The minimum value varies from slide type to slide type – the shortest being 2 seconds.
This means that you can finetune the timing of your project. The animations (text and objects) on the slide will adjust to both the slide duration and to internal rules for build speed, meaning that they will adjust their tempo in a way that makes sense for both short and long durations. When it comes to time on screen, these animations reference the in and out points of the slide and will be directly correlated to the slide's duration.
When changing a slide's duration this will be displayed in the slide duration indicator next to the slide on the storyboard and the total storyboard length indicator will also change to reflect this.
Segment is an easy "numbering" system that allows you to input a number on each slide, for easy creation of a list containing regular slide types. The controls are simple: You can toggle the segment number on or off, input your number of choice and choose the color settings for it – and you can choose if you want the segment number to fade in and/or out on the slide. These settings allow you to chain together multiple slides with the same segment number without animating it in and out on every slide.
An example of how Segment numbers work.
So, for instance, if you want three slides to comprise your segment "1" you would input "1" into each "Segment number" field and on the first of the three slides you could check "Segment Fade in" for it to animate in and on the last of the three slides you would check "Segment Fade out" – and of course toggle segment on for all three slides. This will give you a segment number that spans all three slides and animate in at the beginning of the first slide and out at the end of the third.
When you input a number in the "Segment number" field that number will be visible on the slide on the storyboard.
You have the option of color change for almost all objects and texts on all slide types. There are still a few exceptions, but you can now change pretty much everything if you want to. Remember, though, even without changing anything your video will come out looking great since the default values for all objects are carefully mapped to your theme settings.
The color settings for a Quote slide
When using the drop-down menus for color you see the name of the theme color setting that it defaults as the first option. So it's always easy to roll back to the default setting.
When changing the color of an object or a text these changes should be reflected in the storyboard, giving you direct feedback on your changes.
You can choose if the logo from the theme should be visible (default is that it is visible) or not with the "Show Logo" checkbox under Logo Settings.
