Introducing the new Fable insert panel – your shortcut out of the blank canvas every time you work with Fable.
The Insert panel gives you quick access to import assets – Quickly bring videos, images, SVG, or audio into Fable, or use our Figma plug-in to transfer existing designs without needing to export and re-upload files.
Included with the Insert panel are Fable Components. These are a curated set of components created by the Fable Creative Studio that you’re free to use on any of your projects. We’ve designed common utility components such as lower thirds, titles, and backgrounds, so you can finish your projects with a touch of motion in just a few clicks.
Drag and drop components into your projects; override component inputs on the Inspector; or customize these components completely by detaching them and working with underlying layers.
