A scene’s properties can be edited once it is opened in Design View. In the Title tab you can change the scene’s name, toggle its visibility by clicking the eye icon and add notes about the scene. The Background tab allows you to add a customizable border and the Position tab allows you to rotate, angle and scale the entire scene. The Keystroke tab is only available in scenes made using screen shots; here you can toggle keystroke audio or remove it. In the End of Scene Action tab you can edit the way the scene ends (e.g. continue, go to scene, go to URL, etc.). The Audio tab allows you to add existing or record new audio.

Set the following properties and options for Scenes :

  1. Name
    The default name for a scene is 'Scene X' ('Scene 1', 'Scene 2', 'Scene 3', and so onward), and this is visible in the name property of the movie. You can change a scene's name by deleting the default name and typing in another one. Ensure the scene is selected before attempting to change its name property.
