The cornerstone of most Studio video projects is the Album section containing your captured video scenes. To create your edited movie, you drag scenes from the Album into the Movie Window, where they are treated as editable video clips.
The topics linked below explain how to set the “in” and “out” (start and end) points for each clip. The Movie Window’s editing interface makes this “trimming” process simple, rapid and precise. The methods for trimming video clips can for the most part also be applied to the other types of clip (such as titles and sound effects) that are covered in other topics.
More advanced video editing techniques are also described, including split edits and insert edits.

ow. Both modes support a variety of style options.
