Templates are pre-made visuals you can use in Descript scenes. They can contain supplementary elements like backgrounds, title cards, or lower thirds — or they can be entire scenes that you use across multiple videos. Use templates to speed up your workflow, to create consistent visual identity across your videos, or for easy branding.
Applying templates to a scene
- Open a project; from the editor, select at the top of your app to view the template gallery.
- Click on the side tabs to view various templates; hover over a thumbnail to preview a scene. You can browse both your custom templates under My templates or view stock templates under Gallery.
- Drag and drop the template into the Script Editor or onto the scene timeline. You can select a scene thumbnail and then just click the template you’d like to add, or drag and drop it onto the Canvas.
