New Project Sidebar

We've combined the Composition Sidebar and Media Library into a unified Project Sidebar.

  • Easily access your Compositions and files in a single view
  • Organize each with Folders
  • Filter by type or keyword
  • Quickly navigate through your composition with forward and back buttons
  • Open individual files (just like Sequences) in the file viewer
  • Add a new file by pasting a link from Zoom, Loom, or Giphy.
