The PowToon 5-Step script writing method
1. Point out the problem
2. Indicate that you have a solution
3. Aggravate the problem
4. Show benefits of your solution
5. Call for action
Step 2: Voice-Over Guide / Background Music
Here we indicate the importance of creating a “voice-over-guide” for your Powtoon. You can either record a guide by yourself, hire a pro, use a text-to-voice tool. This session also shows how to upload an mp3 file to your Powtoon.
Steps 3 & 4: Dividing the Slides, Populate the Slides
In this session we show how to distribute your script to slides and create the baseline for scenes. It also shows how to time text objects to coincide with the the voice-over.
Step 5: Timing
In this session you will learn how to add graphics to your scenes using them from PowToon ready libraries or by uploading them from external sources, timing them, and giving them different effects. After watching this, you will be pretty equipped with the knowledge and tools you need in order to start creating your own Powtoon.
