Move, Interact, and Record
The engaging power of Explain Everything comes from the ability to interact with every object. Whether it’s a video, drawing, text, or web browser it can be moved, rotated, and scaled. When recording all these interactions are recorded as well giving you the ability to create exciting, animated projects.

- Group objects quickly – triple-tap on overlapping objects to group them together
- Control multimedia – move scrubbers, set volumes, and loop multimedia objects with their own set of controls
- Multi-object movement – create dynamic animations by moving multiple objects simultaneously
Everything in the Timeline
Explain Everything has a clear visual representation of what happened during the recording. Voice and actions performed on the stage while recording are saved on the Timeline as clips. With scrollable timeline, editing options, and two recording modes you can exactly see each step, refine the project, create additional animations, or add voiceovers.
- Exactly how it went – see every action on the Timeline in form of animation clips
- Two recording modes – redo your recording or add new elements, animations and sounds to an existing recording
- Timeline editing – split, delete, compact clips and parts of the recording
You never run out of canvas space with Explain Everything. Use Zoom and Pan to zoom out infinitely on the entire stage for more space, zoom into details that hasn’t been previously visible, and pan around the stage for dynamic framing and animations. During collaboration, participants can set their own zoom position and work on various zoom levels.
- Infinite Depth – add objects or drawings, zoom out and hide them to uncover them later in the course of your project
- Two Zoom and Pan modes – one for precise framing and animations, second for dynamic live zoom experience
- Work separately on the same project – with personal zoom you can choose your own part of the project to work on while collaborating
