Stars Like many programs, Explaindio has some tutorials and FAQ resources for users. However, these resources are only available to those who have purchased the program--and once you’ve gained access to them, they’re very poorly organized. The 28 tutorial videos are all listed in a single page that scrolls seemingly forever with no index. Ads for other programs crowd the already lengthy page. All of the tutorials are unlisted and therefore unsearchable on Youtube. Their email support advertises a response within "24 - 72 hours", but to expect delays on the weekends. When I contacted support on a Saturday, I did not receive a response until Monday on my simple ticket and until Wednesday on my feature-related question. Considering these two were sent only 30 minutes apart, I find this fairly unreasonable, especially with the poor quality response I received.
Each item in a scene takes up one row on the timeline. The gray bar is how long the media is animated for and can be dragged along the timeline to change when it appears on the screen. The order each media item appears in vertically is the order in which appears to be stacked (i.e. topmost items are the most forward and visible), but the arrangement of the gray bars determines which elements animate and appear first.
There is a excellent video training (about 2 hours) how you can use Explaindio 4.0 for the best results. This training isn’t a part of the program or an upsell. It’s a stand-alone product made by Scott Hamlin and called Explaindio For Professionals ($27.00). I can highly recommend this quality training. It’ll save you time and many and fore all give you great ideas and examples how to use the software without any prior experience.
