Planning

Video Project Planning Guide

Understanding Video software
Video editing files contain the edit information within your project, but do not actually contain the media. (.camrec, .mp4, .png, etc.).

Instead, the file references that media from a designated location. Therefore, if you move, delete, or rename any of the media and try to open the video, it will not be able to locate that media associated with the project.

How to avoid File Location Error

  • Make a new folder on the desktop and label with your project name.
  • Place all images, videos, and audio in this designated folder.
  • Once the software is open save the new project to the folder.
