Frequently asked questions

Why does Article Video Robot break my text?

Article Video Robot will sometimes break long text into smaller slides. Videos are a visual medium, so it is important to make sure that your text is readable and visually appealing for the viewers.

wall of text
In our testing we found that viewers quickly lose interest when there is a 'wall of text' like this in the video.

But this feature is optional, and you can disable it by putting a large number like 9999 as shown in the image below.

My video is too fast! How do I slow it down?

Article video robot automatically sets the slide duration to the length of the voice-over to keep everything in sync.

But sometimes you may need to slow a slide down to make it look better.

For that you have the option to set a minimum duration for each slide.

Additionally, AVR comes with a fully featured video editor in which you can adjust the speed and time for each individual item in the slide.

Why don't the slides change when I press back and edit my article?

Once the slides are generated they will not change, even if you edit your article. This is to prevent accidental overwriting for any edits you may have made since they were originally created.

But you can force AVR to re-create the slides as shown in the image below.

I changed the text of my slide, but it's still playing the old audio?

Once the audio is generated for a slide it will not overwrite automatically (even when you change the text). This is to prevent any accidental overwriting of the audio files (including mic recordings or mp3 uploads). This also means if you change the default narrator voice for your video, the slides with old audio will not switch to the new voice automatically.

But you can force AVR to re-create the audio for your slides by clicking the small red cross (which clears the audio).

This is also useful if you've changed the default narrator voice and want to use the new voice for all slides.

Can I add a custom video (like a screen recording) in between two slides?

Yes, you can add a custom video in between two slides as shown in the image below.

How can I download a Mp4 file of my videos?

Additionally, you will be notified you in the member's area using the small bell icon in the top right corner of the screen as shown in the image below.
