00:00 --> 00:06
This is the SkillGround Video Creator, visual development platform that enables

00:06 --> 00:11
you to create production-grade explainer videos without any knowledge of animation.

00:11 --> 00:16
We've distilled industry-standard production principles, content, and

00:16 --> 00:24
features into a cohesive, simple-to-use package. In this lesson, we'll cover the general layout of

00:00:24 --> 00:32
the Video Creator, which comprises four distinct components: the Clip Library, the Visual Timeline,

00:32 --> 00:38
the Fine Edit Panel, and the Navigation Toolbar. so, let's dive in.

00:38 --> 00:41
First, the Clip Library, located the top left, is our ever-expanding

00:41 --> 00:47
library of animated content that serves as the fundamental building blocks of your explainer

00:47 --> 00:56
video. Each clip is ten seconds long and can be previewed by simply hovering over it.

00:56 --> 01:01
Below the Clip Library lies the Visual Timeline, the heart of the application

01:01 --> 01:07
where you assemble your video. The bottom layer accommodates text that will be read by a narrator,

01:07 --> 01:15
while the top layer is designated for clips that help visualize what’s being said.

01:15 --> 01:21
To the right is the Fine Edit Panel, which allows users to fine-tune clips, select accompanying

01:21 --> 01:28
music, and choose the right narrator. At the top, we have the Navigation Toolbar,

01:28 --> 01:33
which enables you to navigate back to the dashboard, access project settings,

01:33--> 01:39
preview your video, and export the final product. Finally, in the bottom right corner, there's a

01:39 --> 01:43
chat button that opens our support window. Here, you can ask for

01:43 --> 01:48
assistance or explore our knowledge base if you ever find yourself needing help.
