- Importing Clips – So, when starting out a new project you will want to be able to import the footage you are going to be using throughout the project (like I said this is incredibly basic), so what you will want to do is go to the file option in the top left of the screen, much like premiere you then hit the import option from the drop down menu. A side menu should then appear when you need to select Media option. It will soon open the file browser, now choose your desired file that you wish to edit. Once you hit the OK button on the browser window your files will appear within a few seconds on the screen over the media tab. This means you can easily drag them into the timeline for further editing.
- Timeline – That moves us nicely onto the timeline, chances are you will be spending most of your time here. The timeline of the software window contains all audio and video tracks that you may further need for editing. In this selection, the audio clips possess music and other sound effects whereas the video track portion will contain text, videos and photos. Users can also use add video track options for adding more timeline space as per need.
- Effects – Now that the content is available on your timeline it can be edited and made to look exactly how you intended, through the power of using different special effects. To add an effect, hit the effects option from tab available on the left side of the screen. You then select your desired effect from the effects menu. Next up, you click and drag your effect to any video clip available on timeline. Once you have added your effect to the desired clip then close the modifier and the effect will be visible.
