Templates Masterclass

Last email I mentioned the two new sections of the course: the Workflow and Templates Masterclass sections.

Descript Mastery course homepage showing the two new sections: Workflows & Templates

The Templates Masterclass now has ~40 minutes of content.

The first five lessons cover how to make and apply each of Descript’s four types of templates:

  1. built-in, pre-made templates
  2. copying and pasting layouts (not true templates but highly useful)
  3. making a template within a project
  4. making a template from scratch

Then, there are four more lessons going into common errors I see people make with templates and how to troubleshoot and fix them.

The lessons are designed for you to watch it then practice the skill in your own project.

To login and access the new section, here’s the link:
