The Length of a Powtoon slide is determined by your subscription. You can create an entire Powtoon on a single slide, or create a Powtoon comprised of multiple shorter slides.
For example, with a Free subscription, the maximum length of a Powtoon is 3 minutes. Therefore the maximum length of a slide is also 3 minutes.
- In the Powtoon Studio, make sure that you are working in Create mode.
Note that you cannot extend a slide when working in Edit mode.
- In the slide panel, select the slide thumbnail with the scene that you want to extend.
- Note where the objects are positioned on the timeline.
In the example below, the character and the Sun are playing until the end of the slide.
Make sure that the end points of the objects you want to extend are positioned exactly at the end of the slide. If there is any gap between the object's duration (the blue timeline) and the end of the slide, the object will not be extended to the next slide.
- On the slide that you want to extend, hover over the three dots in the bottom right corner to display the slide menu.
- Click Extend.
You can also right-click on the slide thumbnail and then select Extend Slide.
A new slide will be added after the slide you extended. By default, the objects will play on this slide for 1 second. You can extend this duration and make any additional edits to the slide.
Make sure not to add a transition between the original slide and the one following. A transition will disturb the flow of the scene.
