On average, how long should my episodes be? I know they should be around 10-15 minutes but I really want to finish my third episode quickly.
I say at least 6 or 7 minutes
It depends how you code everything I think. I use pretty simple coding with advanced every then and there and it amounts to 1300 lines which lasts for 15 minutes
I think you could easily get away with less lines though! I would say a minimum of 700 lines
OK! Thank you! I know I shouldn’t rush but I want to finish
OK! Thanks! I know I shouldn’t rush but I really want to finish
Oooooh no no.
It depends on the dialogue and coding used.
If you’re using lots of spotting and advanced directing, 1000 lines isn’t anywhere near enough.
Typically I used 500 lines for one scene.
If you’re planning on a professionalish story, advanced directing, spotting, and zooming will take tons of time and a lot of lines.
Oh ok. What is considered advanced directing though?
Use of overlays, filters, zooming in every scene, spotting, and complex animations.
Use a timer and play through your episode. I usually end up with 10 minutes episode.
