The audio is 12s and the video length is 3s. The remaining 9 seconds are to be distributed among the selected photos.
If you have selected 90 photos, you can set the duration to 0.1s. If you have selected 45 photos, you can set them as 0.2s.
After selecting the duration, tap the double checkmark on the left, then Apply to all.
Step 12: Now, you can preview your video. It all depends on your editing skills how the video will look like. You can edit it as per your choice.
