I’m rather new with this product. What shall I start with?

If you are just starting your work with AVS Video Editor, the first thing you do is creating a new project. There are 2 sample projects which are included in the installation of the AVS Video Editor which you can take a look at - they appear listed in the collection area when you first launch the software.

To create new project select File >> Project >> New and specify the parameters for your project. Next time you start the Editor, it will appear in the list of projects.

When you have created a project, you will be taken to the Editor main window, which looks like this:

Here you can add multimedia data to your collections, place files on the story-board, edit particular files.

For more information, please refer to our help file, which can be downloaded from our web site or read online, under Getting Started section.

How do I add videos, audio or pictures to my collections? What multimedia sources can I use?

To add a multimedia file to a collection, select Start menu in the left hand side of the Editor interface. Then, depending on what type of file you would like to add, select Import Media and then Add Video, Add Audio or Add Image options. When you click on one of these options, a Windows Explorer window will appear, where you can browse your system for a particular file, including your HDD, a CD, a DVD, inserted in your CD or DVD drive or removable devices, such as portable HDDs or a photo camera, connected to your computer.

When you select a file or a group of files, AVS Video Editor will offer you to place the files into the existing collection, or to create a new one.

If you are importing a video file, you can also split it into scenes, having ticked the necessary option.

You can select Capture option and having configured the capture device, capture video from your TV-Tuner, capture card or digital video camera, connected to your computer. Please check out our help file for more information about capturing.

How do I start editing a particular audio track or a video clip?

When you placed a movie or several movie files in the story board, select the Edit Movie option from the menu. Here you can add transitions, effects, or mix audio. Each time you select a particular option, timeline mode is switched on so that you can visually judge the editing process. To edit an audio file in an audio editor, select the Mix Audio option, add an audio track to the timeline and select Edit Audio in Editor button (F4) in the timeline menue. After you are done with editing the audio track, exit the Editor.

What is timeline and how do I use it? How is it different from storyboard?

AVS Video Editor provides both timeline and storyboard editing.
Storyboard editing allows users to put their video clips in order as they would pictures on the page of a photo album with each picture representing a separate video clip.

Timeline editing allows users to arrange their video clips against the backdrop of a timeline. This is useful if you want to synchronize sound effects, titles, and background music. They all can be queued to enter the stage at a precise time.

How can I insert a picture for a project and have it displayed for a certain number of frames?

To appoint the time during which your picture is shown, left-click the picture file on the story-board, select Property menu and appoint the necessary display time in Duration field.

There are several types of DVDs, which ones does AVS Video Editor support?

AVS Video Editor works with the following media types: DVD-R/RW, DVD+R/RW, DVD-RAM, DVD-DL (dual layer).

Important Note! Before you create a DVD, make sure that it is compatible with your DVD drive and your home DVD player!

How do I delete a scene in a movie file, which I do not want to use in my project?

If you need to delete a whole scene from a movie file do the following:

Step 1. When importing a file, tick Split into Scenes option. Your file will be added to a collection already splitted into scenes.
Step 2. Simply drag and drop to the story board the scenes you need to include in your movie from the collection area.

If you need to cut out a part of a particular film, do the following:

Step 1. Select a scene on the storyboard and hit Edit Movie >> Effects.
Step 2. On the timeline, select the area you would like to remove by dragging a mouse, holding the left key pressed.
Step 3. Click the Delete option on the timeline menu (the Scizzors button).

If you need to undo the operation, select Undo Storyboard operation option in the storyboard menu pane.
