Studio opens in Edit mode each time it is launched, because that is the mode you use most often. The Edit mode display includes three main areas.
The Album stores resources you will use in your movies, including your captured video scenes.
The Movie Window is where you create your edited movie by arranging video and sound clips, and by applying transitions and effects.
The Player provides playback and previewing for whichever item is currently selected in Studio. That may be an Album resource – such as a video scene, title or sound effect – or your edited movie, complete with transitions, titles, effects and several audio tracks.
