Now that you have selected the images you want to include in your composition, it’s time to decide how long you’d like them to appear on the screen. By default, all the images added are selected. You can distinguish this with the halo around the media item and the co next to the duration. Keep in mind that duration will automatically be added equally to each selected image. If you want each image to show for a different duration, you can deselect images by tapping on them in the timeline, and reselecting by doing the same action.

You will see a co in the center of the screen, long press, drag right and hold it to add time. Holding it in position will record at a fixed speed. This speed is defined by how far-right you drag the recorder: the more right you drag and hold, the faster the record speed. To remove the durations, you can drag and hold left, with the same functionality as before.

Once you have set the duration of your visuals, a co will appear to confirm the time. Tap it to add the selected duration to the desired media.

When inserting a video, you won’t need to set the duration as the video clip already has its own.

Tap on the co, this will bring up the audio section. Tap again and it will close it. Now, a co has appeared in the record button and tapping it will start an audio recording.
