How does minutes consumption work?
How does minutes consumption work?
Updated over a week ago

In Synthesia, when creating projects, you use a number of minutes during the creation process. The longer your video, the more minutes you use. Depending on your plan, will determine how many minutes you have to use. You can find out more about usage settings here. Let's dive a little further into minute consumption for Synthesia now! 🥳


How the minutes are spent

Example: You have a 3-minute video allowance per month. You've used 2 minutes and 40 seconds to create a video, but then you decide to revise the script.

Type of Revision

Example

Behavior

Existing words are removed

From: We will talk about avatars To: We will talk

No effect on consumption

New words are added

From: We will talk about avatars To: We will talk about avatars and voices

Count duration of new words. It’s +1 seconds to the script. So you have spent 2.41 seconds of the credit.

Existing words are replaced i.e. removal then addition

From: We will talk about avatars To: We will discuss voices

Count duration of new words. It’s +2 seconds to the script. So you have spent 2.42 seconds of the credit.

Order of existing words is changed

From: We will talk and avatars will listen To: Avatars will talk and we will listen

No effect on consumption

Addition, removal and replacement of punctuation marks
