1. Setting Up the Project
If you’re organized from the beginning, it’s going to make your life so much easier. I recommend creating a 3-level hierarchy of folders on your computer or hard drive. Video Projects could be your main folder, and within that create folders named after the projects you’re working on. For example Procedure 1, Procedure 2, and so on. Lastly, I recommend creating folders for your types of media within each project folder, such as Video, Images, Audio and any other media you have.
Now, copy your video, images, audio, and/or other files to these folders accordingly and you’re ready to open up the editing program. The benefit of doing this each time is that you’ll always have your original media stored somewhere on your computer in an organized fashion when you need to find it later.
