Canvas overview


The Canvas contains all of a scene’s visual elements — the video, templates, titles, fancy captions, images, shapes, and so on; you can add, arrange, and adjust the elements by clicking on them in the Canvas. It’s the primary work area for assembling and editing video in Descript, and it works kind of like a slide in a presentation app like PowerPoint.

Please note that the canvas will not be visible in audio only compositions.

Canvas toolbar

The canvas toolbar allows you to quickly adjust the layout properties which includes size, position, rotation, cropping, and angle rounding, of a selected visuals and to access additional canvas tools.
