Starting a project

To start using the Video Editor click on the Editor tab and create a new project:

Creating a  highlights montage

How to protect project clips

Project clips are not protected from auto deletion if your storage settings are set to “Auto menage”.

To save a video from auto deletion, you need to add it to favorites. Here is how to favorite a clip.


Please note that if a clip was deleted before the project has been exported it will be removed from the project and appear as an empty file:


Editing your clips

Once you have selected your videos they will be added to the project timeline (on the bottom of the screen). You can click on the clip again to add another copy of it to the timeline. If you want to delete a video and all its timeline instances from the project, click on the trash icon:

Click on one of the clips in the timeline to view & edit the clip properties such as the clip length, crop options & volume of the selected clip:


The ratio of the clip will be decided by the first clip imported into the project. You can change the crop options of videos with different aspect ratio by clicking on the clip and then clicking on the following options (if the videos aspect ratio is the same as the projects, these options will be disabled) :


You can change the clip length by entering a start time and end time or manually moving the bars on the timeline:
