Placing Imported Media Files to the Storyboard/Timeline

When your video is ready to be added to your future movie, you can add it to the Timeline/Storyboard Area. This can be simply done drag-and-dropping the video with the mouse from the Files and Effects Area to the Timeline/Storyboard Area:

Adding Media Files to the Timeline

Click the Media Library button of the Menu Panes, select the video clip to be added and, without releasing the left mouse button, drag the file to the Timeline/Storyboard Area and only there release the mouse button dropping the file.

Note!Note: it is not too much important whether you add the files using the Timeline or Storyboard view for the Timeline/Storyboard Area as you can manage the order of the videos afterwards.

If you do not like drag-and-dropping or simply prefer some other methods, it is possible to use the Express Menu to add files to the Timeline/Storyboard Area. Click the file to be added with the right mouse button and select the Add to Main Video option:

The files of all types are added the same way - videos, audios, images and colors - you can either drag-and-drop them or use the Express Menu. Just select the necessary category in the Files and Effects Area and add them to the Timeline/Storyboard Area using one of the methods described above.

After that you can manage the Timeline/Storyboard Area layout and files order.
