Leveraging the Timing Algorithm

The Ripl app was designed to help you make something beautiful in a few simple steps. We strive to automate complexity wherever we can to remove obstacles from the creation flow so you can quickly create great content for your business.

A few of you have expressed wanting more control over the timing of the animations. Right now we have a complex timing algorithm that determines the optimal time based on the design and number of photos included. Rather than overcomplicating the customize process with a timing control, we've designed the algorithm to do the work for you adjusting the design based on the components of the design.

There's a few simple guidelines to follow to help you achieve the length you'd like:

  1. More photos will mean a longer video
  2. Slideshow designs are generally longer because they will take into account the amount of text on each slide and set transition time based on how much text needs to be read
  3. Banner and Overlay designs are generally shorter than slideshow designs because one message persists across the photos and the transitions between photos are simple

If you feel videos are going too fast or too slow, let our team know! You can always reach us by tapping the Ripl menu, then "give us feedback." We're always making tweaks and adjustments to improve each design for everyone.
