Timeline Editor (beta)

A rudimentary version of a timeline editor is now available. All you can do for now is adjust the trim on clips. Lots more coming soon.


Audio/Video Editing

Now you can edit audio/video by editing text.

New keyboard shortcuts

  • TAB to play/pause
  • command + R to insert a speaker label (ctrl + R on Windows)
  • command + return to insert a marker (ctrl + return on Windows)

Export Audio

Export an audio file of your Composition. This isn't super useful right now, but will be when we ship audio editing shortly.
