00:00 --> 00:06
In this lesson, we'll explore the narration aspect of the Visual Timeline. SkillGround

00:06 --> 00:10
explainer videos typically utilize text-to-speech narrators as their  

00:10 --> 00:20
foundation. The script contains the main information or story you wish to convey,  

00:20 --> 00:26
while the visuals enhance the experience and keep viewers engaged. 

00:34 --> 00:39
We'll cover three methods for creating your narration script in SkillGround:  

00:39 --> 00:46
Direct Input, Paste, or AI Script. Direct Input involves typing your text  

00:46 --> 00:52
directly into the script layer. As you type, the Timeline will automatically segment the  

00:52 --> 00:58
text into sentences, and you'll see the video's duration to the right of the Timeline. To insert  

00:58 --> 01:04
a pause in the script, use two periods. The app will automatically generate a pause, with  

01:04 --> 01:13
each additional period adding one more second. Copy paste allows you to copy text from another source,  

01:13 --> 01:18
like Microsoft Word or Google Docs, into the script layer. The Visual Timeline will then  

01:18 --> 01:27
automatically format the text visually and provide an exact duration based on the text. 

01:27 --> 01:31
AI Script is a feature found in the Visual Timeline's toolbar. It opens a  

01:31 --> 01:37
popup window where AI assists you in writing your script based on a given prompt and your  

01:37 --> 01:48
selection of tone and duration. Regardless of the method used to  

01:48 --> 01:53
create your script, you can always edit and refine the text as your project evolves.
