    This is part one of the Colorful Movie Editor series. In this part of the series, I will show you how to add your video clips to the storyboard. This is where you will need to start. After we set up the storyboard, you can add music, effects, and transitions to your video or movie. Open your Colorful Movie Editor program and we will get started.

    Importing Photos and Videos into your Preview Panel of Colorful Video Editor

    Importing and Adding Movies to Your Storyboard in Colorful Movie Editor - image You will first need to import the videos and photos into the preview area. That is the area at the top right of the window. Please see the image to the left to get a visual of this window. In this window, you will see four tabs, make sure the Movie tab is clicked. On the left side of the window, you will see the three icons. The three icons are the plus sign icon, minus sign icon, and arrow icon. The plus sign is what you will click to add videos and photos. The minus sign is what you click to delete videos and photos from the preview window. The arrow is what you click to add the videos and photos to the storyboard at the bottom. Now that you understand this section, we can start importing the photos and videos.

    Click the Plus Sign and a window will open. Locate the video or photos that you want to open, click it, and click the open button. Repeat this process to open your other videos and photos. Once you have them open in the preview window, you can start adding them to the storyboard. If there are videos or photos you want to delete from the preview window, click the video or photo and click the minus sign.
