Splitting vs. creating a new scene

Splitting a scene

To split a scene, insert a slash (/) in your script where you want to add a new scene, or click the slash icon to the left of your script. This will add a scene to your composition and fill it with the existing script’s media. This is useful if you already have script media and you want your visuals to change mid-scene.


Creating a new empty scene

You can add a new empty scene in three different ways:

  • Clicking on the slash icon to the left of a blank line your script
  • Adding a slash (/) to an empty line in your Script editor
  • Clicking the + icon to the left of the Script Editor and searching for “scene” in quick actions.

Adding an empty scene will create an entirely new scene which is useful when you want to add new material to your script at a specific point in your video.

Once you add media to the script where the empty scene is positioned, the scene will automatically adjust its length to match the media.
