Can the video dimensions be changed?
Yes, you can change the dimensions by clicking File Resize in the navigation bar. Changing the dimensions will destructively rearrange the existing elements on the canvas (i.e. if you go from one size and change it to another, the elements will move around and not be restorable if you select the original size). Currently, the only way to go back to previous settings is to undo the size changes.
How do I add elements to the video?
Using the left toolbar, elements such as background, text, images, shapes, device mockups, animations, and audio can be played into the video as layers on the video timeline.

Select the element you want to move. You can then adjust the order using Send Forward and Send Backward in the Action Menu.

A bounding box will appear when you hover over an object that falls outside of the canvas. This allows you to drag it back onto the canvas. Another method is to use the Undo function on the action menu (or Ctrl or Command + Z on the keyboard).
How does the video background work?
The background can be set as a solid colour, a linear gradient, or a CSS gradient background (CSS gradient backgrounds can be browsed on GradientHunt and pasted into the custom background section). Backgrounds persist as the bottom layer of the video and other elements can be added on top.
