Project Settings

Project Settings

Project settings determine fundamental canvas and timeline characteristics.

Project settings are located in the Inspector and broken down into Canvas, Timeline, and Layout Grid. View and update each section's settings as follows:

Canvas

  • Presets: The default canvas size is 1920p x 1080p, which is considered standard resolution. Click the dropdown to view other common media sizes.

  • Custom: To create outside of the presets, simply adjust the Width and Height values within 1-1920 pixels. View Plans for 4K resolution.

  • Background Color & Opacity: Click the square to view the Color Picker and change the background color. Click on percentage to adjust the opacity. Click the eye to disable and have a transparent background.

  • Antialiasing: Automatically activated on all exports unless manually deactivated, it smooths lines and removes visual distortions.

To turn off snapping to canvas, hold CMD on a Mac or CTRL on a PC while dragging the layer on the canvas.

Timeline

  • Frame Rate: Measures how quickly a number of frames appear within a second. Create projects with up to 30 fps (frames per second). View Plans for up to 60 fps.

  • Duration: Determines the overall length of your project up to 30 seconds. View our plans for an unlimited duration.

A convenient panel on the Timeline lets you make duration and frame rate adjustments on the fly. Otherwise, make adjustments in the Inspector.

Layout Grid

Click + next to the section to activate and unfurl the property settings.

  • Spacing: Adjust the grid's Horizontal/Vertical spacing.

  • Grid color and opacity: Click the square to view the Color Panel and change the grid color. Click on percentage to adjust grid opacity.

  • Snap to grid: Click to align layers with your customized grid; disable to move more freely.
