Total Length of Step By Step View and Try


Is there a way to get a quick look at the total length of a view me step by step recording or a try me step by step recording?  I know I can go to each slide and look at the timing and calculate the run time.  I am wondering is there is a counter in Storyline that I am missing that will tell me how long these scenes are.  Any help is appreciated.

Hi Dayle,

Since those step-by-step recordings are effectively slides, there's no way to view the entire duration other than adding up the individual timelines.

A workaround would be to import only that scene into a new project and then check the publishing options to see the duration of the entire project (see screenshot).

Hope that helps!

Thank you.  I did not know that.  It was helpful.  When Storyline estimates a project duration, I am assuming it adds the time per slide for each screen record and then assigns a time to each regular (non screen record slide).  Is that correct?  If so, is the estimated duration fairly accurate?  Thanks for your help.

You're welcome! The estimated duration is calculated by adding together the duration of the timelines of all of the slides in the project. The reason why we say "estimated" is because learners can review slides, stay on slides longer than the duration of the timeline, etc.
