How the media library is organized

Understanding how project files are organized in Descript will help you navigate and manage project media effectively:

  • The Files tab icon Files tab contains all project files you import into your project and any recordings you've made.
  • The Videos, GIFs, Images, and Audio tabs contain stock media. Descript's rich library of premium stock media and integrations with Unsplash and GIPHY allow you to quickly enhance your content and be added to your project.

Stock media is added as a project file

When you add stock media to your project from any of the stock libraries, the file will be added to your project as a project file and stored in the Stock Media folder of the Files tab.

Adding and interacting with your project files

Replacing and updating files

  • You can replace existing project files with new versions containing the same underlying content. This is especially useful when encountering issues with the current project file or needing to swap out a scratch track with a final version.
  • You can replace a project file's transcript in Descript, making it an excellent option for situations where you start with an automatic transcription and later decide to replace it with a pre-written transcript.
