    To add a layer, click on the "+" button.


  • If you had a layer on top, it will be add over previous layers. So its medias will read over.


  • You can trim the layer opacity by modifying the "opacity" value in the right panel.

    Generaly, all the layer's properties can be trimmed in this right panel.

  • Entering the "edit mode" allow you to reorganize medias and layers.
