Script time calculator

At Piehole.TV we love making explainer videos, creatively and accurately! So without further ado, we present to you…. our amazing explainer video script timer! Just paste in your script and click the button to see its expected duration. We’ve created this tool by analyzing the data of over 150 explainer videos.

Select “Without Voiceover” if your script uses typography rather than spoken audio.

Note: Compared to other script timers on the web, which are not focused on video specifically, this timer corresponds to a slower voiceover read. That’s because with explainer videos the voiceover read is often slightly slower to allow the visuals to develop and also sometimes pauses are introduced during animation revision rounds. Your actual final video duration may differ from this estimate as there are many factors that can cause variation – this deviation is less than 20% in 67% of cases.

Do you need animation to go with your script? Or do you need help making your script more exciting? Get in touch right now by filling out the below form.
