Replace selection

You can record over any selection in the script and replace it with the a new recording. When you replace a selection, Descript intelligently matches the new pacing, so your scenes and b-roll layers remain in the right spot for simple editing later. This allows you to write your script, make your scenes, drop in your b-roll, add animations and transitions before you record anything.
