STEP 1: Placing video to the storyboard
To start placing the imported video to the storyboard please
click the Make Video icon in the Create Movie menu pane.
After that you will find the Media Library items and
clips present in the highlighted item in the
Media Library and the Workspace displayed in
the Storyboard mode. Working in this mode you can add or remove video
clips from your project, change the sequence of clips at the storyboard, trim
video clips added to your project.
To add video to the storyboard please use drag-and-drop method:
drag the desired video icon from the Media Library to the Storyboard:
To change the sequence of your video clips it's easier to use
the Move Left
and Move Right
buttons. Note that there is an opportunity to use multiselection feature: all
of the videos selected in the Media Library will be added to the Storyboard.
When all of the necessary video clips are added, it's time to
cut the unnecessary part in Timeline mode.
STEP 2: Cutting the unnecessary part in Timeline mode
To cut the needless video you should switch into the Timeline
mode. For that click the Video Effects button in the Create Movie menu
After that find out the starting position of the unnecessary
video episode and move the Timeline cursor to it. It is very convenient
to use the Main Preview for that. Click the Show/Hide Preview button
to open the Main Preview window.
You can use the Timeline cursor or the Main Preview
seeking bar to navigate through your video. When the desired point is found,
you should set marker at this place. For that click the Markers tab
located in the right lower corner and click the Add button. Then repeat
the sequence of action described above to set marker at the end position of
area you want to delete.
After that you should do the following:
- double-click the starting position marker in the markers list;
- click the Go To button;
- click end the position marker in the markers list;
- click the Select button.
The part of your video from the starting marker till the end
marker will be selected at the Timeline and highlighted.
After all, please click the Split/Delete button .
Then AVS Video Editor will automatically take you to the Storyboard
view where your input video clip will be represented as two clips: the first
one will contain video information from the beginning till the starting
position marker, and the second one - from the ending position marker till the
end of your input video clip.
Now it's time to
preview the result.
STEP 3: Preview the Result
The Main Preview is intended for previewing the whole project with audio
and all of the effects and changes you have made. This is exactly what we need!
Move the Timeline cursor to the position where you want
to start previewing.
