You’ve got a handful of tools for working with visuals in the Canvas. You can access these tools by right-clicking on a visual in the canvas. Note that some options only appear for certain types of visuals.
|Select Layer||Right-click and choose from the list to easily select a layer in the scene|
|Adjust layer order||Right-click and choose to move your visual layer forward, backward, or to the front of back|
|Scale||Click and drag a visual's corner to scale while maintaining the aspect ratio of the visual; drag from the side to fill the visual's container and not alter the proportions of the source media|
|Crop||Double click on a image or video, or right-click and select Crop to enter crop mode. Hit Esc, or double click the layer again to exit crop mode when done.|
|Rotate||Click and drag the outside of a visual’s corner to rotate the visual|
Right-click and replace the selected visual with media from your project files or stock media in the Media Library
|Paste attributes||Paste the properties of a visual onto another visual in a scene|
|Duplicate||Duplicate the selected layer; you can also hold Option (Mac) or Alt (Windows) while dragging the layer to create a copy|
|Replace with...||You can replace any layer with new media, swap the selected visual with another visual's position and properties in the active scene; for sequences, this tool allows you to swap the active video with any other video track in the sequence, or with the currently active speaker (if you select that option)|
|Delete layer||Delete the visual from the scene|
Cropping or flipping visual layers
When you select a visual layer in the Canvas, a floating toolbar will appear above the visual. You can then choose to Crop and Flip horizontal or Flip vertical.
