Typing Placeholder Text with Overdub

Use Overdub to type freely in your Composition with or without an associated Overdub Voice. Overdub is typically used as a way to compose voiceover or narration, and takes up space in your timeline to emulate a standard speaking rate (180 words per minute).



If you want to type in your Composition without taking up space in the timeline, use Notes.
