You can "non-destructively" export a composition to a format that can be opened in most major audio and video editing tools. This is different than Descript's normal Export audio feature; when you export a Timeline:
- You get a folder with an exported copy of your source files.
- Your original files are preserved.
- The edits and regions in Descript carry through, so you can still tweak trims, etc.
- Timecode values that were present in your source files are preserved in the media assets in the timeline export folder destination.
You can access the timeline export feature by clicking Publish, selecting the Export tab and then choosing Timeline from the list of options.

Considerations when exporting to Pro Tools
Some Pro Tools editions do not support AAF file exchange. Please see Pro Tool's plan comparison for more details.

Whenever Studio Sound is applied to a file, a new source file is created with the Studio Sound effect. For files with an intensity setting of less than 100%, Descript automatically blends the source and studio sound file together.
Timeline exports of Studio Sound files will include both the source audio and Studio Sound files separately, with volume adjusted to match the configured intensity value in your source composition.
