Start Screen

When you first open the software, the Start Screen offers you several options. From the Start Screen, it's easy to start a new project, preview recent projects, manage your account, and access the Support Center.


New Project

The New Project button will create a new project.

The New Project screen is where we initially fill out the details for our project and name it. The software stores your designs, called Save files, inside of project folders. 

Each project folder contains your save files, autosaves, screenshots, videos, and exported content for that project.

Supported image formats are JPG, PNG, BMP & TGA. Transparency is supported in PNG and TGA images. It is recommended that the image be no larger than 200×200 pixels and that the total image file size be not larger than 1MB. Larger logos may cause performance issues or fail to appear at all in the presentation.

In the Create Presentation Stage you can display this information on your screenshots, videos and presentations.
