Scene stepping

Scene stepping is not yet available for screen recording.

Descript allows you to record scene by scene without having to stop and start recording. You can just manually step through scenes one by one as you record. This is great if you've laid out scenes in your project—like slides of a presentation—and you want to record something unscripted, or something that's totally different from your original script.
