00:00 --> 00:04
In this lesson, we'll be delving into the Preview Player and discussing its important  

00:04 --> 00:10
role in the iterative design process of an explainer video. Let's get started. 

00:10 --> 00:15
When you're ready to preview your explainer project, activate the preview player by 

00:15 --> 00:20
clicking the preview button located in the navigation toolbar. In this mode,

00:20 --> 00:26
you'll see a video player equipped with all the standard controls: a play button, a timeline for 

00:26 --> 00:33
video navigation, a volume slider, full screen option, and a button to toggle subtitles. 

00:33 --> 00:38
On the right side, you still have access to the music and narration controls in the fine edit  

00:38 --> 00:45
panel. So you can easily audition other narrators or music tracks. Simply select a new narrator  

00:45 --> 00:51
or music to see these changes in real-time. It's important to note that Clip Inputs will  

00:51 --> 00:58
not be automatically updated in this view. Any text, logo, image, or other inputs will be shown  

00:58 --> 01:05
as placeholders. These elements require additional processing so in order to see these changes you’ll  

01:05 --> 01:11
need to use the clip render feature. We cover this process in more detail in other lessons. 

01:11 --> 01:17
To resume editing your project, click the edit button located in the navigation toolbar. You're  

01:17 --> 01:22
encouraged to toggle between the Edit Mode and the Preview player in an iterative cycle,  

01:22 --> 01:27
fine tuning your work until you're completely satisfied. Once ready,  

01:27 --> 01:33
hit the Export button to initiate the rendering process for your finished video.
