Project Settings

The Project Settings dialog controls the settings for an individual project. To edit the project settings, select Magnification dropdown > Project Settings.


Change the Canvas Dimensions

The canvas displays a preview of how the final video will look when produced and shared. If you choose to change the size of the video, set the canvas dimensions to the same size you plan to produce your final video.

When changing canvas dimensions, keep these things in mind:

  • The canvas dimensions must be at least 640 x 480 to include a table of contents (TOC) or quiz/survey.
  • Change the canvas dimensions before you begin editing your video. Changing the dimensions after editing can skew the look of work already completed.
  1. Select Magnification dropdown > Project Settings.
  2. The Project Settings dialog appears.
    • To select a standard video size, click Canvas Dimensions and select a preset.
    • To enter custom width and height, click Canvas Dimensions and select Custom. Enter dimensions (in pixels) into Width and Height fields.
  3. Click Apply.


Change the Editing Frame Rate

To edit and produce a video at a high frame rate (60 fps), your timeline must include high frame rate video clips.


Select Magnification dropdown > Project Settings > Frame Rate dropdown to change the editing frame rate.


The editing frame rate is displayed above the timeline.


Maintain Consistent Audio Levels across Clips

Enable the Auto-normalize loudness option to automatically adjust the audio loudness across clips to maintain audio consistency for a project.
