When editing newly created videos in Quick Edit, updating the script results in the timing of the video being adjusted to fit the new changes. Once the edits have been made, click SAVE at the bottom of the Quick Edit prompt to save your progress.

Note:  If the video has been opened in the Vyond Studio, making later updates to the script in Quick Edit will NOT result in the script timing being adjusted.

Other Considerations

Notes
  • Quick Edit is not supported for chart labels at this time. 
  • The timeline will not auto-adjust, additional editing may need to be done to adjust audio tracks to fit scene lengths. 
  • User needs to click save / preview after updating text-to-speech settings to regenerate all text-to-speech. If user updates the setting and then a script line, only that script line will be regenerated.
  • Longer loading times are expected depending on the number of scenes that need to be updated
Limitations
  • Unable to bulk edit emotional settings if the character has mixed voices
  • There is no autosave in Quick Edit
  • Characters with Esperanto voice are not supported at this time
Known Issues
  • Voice setting options are sometimes hidden (only "Default" is available). Users can preview the video or reselect the language to reload the options
  • The unassigned text-to-speech audio’s voice style shows an empty dropdown menu
