Templates

Templates are scenes that have been exported from a project for use as a starting point for other scenes. In addition to the templates provided by Sumerian, the dashboard lets you manage templates that you have exported from a scene.

You can use the dashboard to create a scene from a template, or move or copy templates between scenes. Sumerian also provides a library of templates.

  3. Choose one of the Sumerian Templates, or choose My templates to use a template from one of your projects.

Create templates from your scenes from the scene settings section in the Sumerian editor. You can then copy your templates to other projects from the Templates section of the scene's project page in the dashboard.
