Like anime made for television broadcast, OVAs are sub-divided into episodes. OVA media (tapes, laserdiscs, or DVDs) usually contain just one episode each. Episode length varies from title to title: each episode may run from a few minutes to two hours or more. An episode length of 30 minutes occurs quite commonly, but no standard length exists. In some cases, the length of episodes in a specific OVA may vary greatly, for example in GaoGaiGar FINAL, the first 7 episodes last around 30 minutes, while the last episode lasts 50 minutes; the OVA Key the Metal Idol consists of 15 separate episodes, ranging in length from 20 minutes to nearly two hours each; The OVA Hellsing Ultimate had released 10 episodes, ranging from 42 minutes to 56 minutes. An OVA series can run anywhere from a single episode (essentially a direct-to-video movie) to dozens of episodes in length. Probably the longest OVA series ever made, Legend of the Galactic Heroes, spanned 110 main episodes and 52 gaiden episodes.
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.
