Ah! My apologies - from within the function page, under "Designer", immediately under the function you should see a layers button. Everything you need is in there.

Hey Harold, Thank you for your great instructions, does it mean that the Lambda limitation will unable to encode full length film? e.g. feature film of 1hour and 45mins or longer for example?

Thanks again!

Yeah, that's the big downside. It can't really do that. In fact, I found out that anything with loads of motion will break, because it only has so much room. But it's pretty good for the things we really need it for.
