Getting started: Combine media to make a movie

Movie Creator is our easy-to-use video editing tool that allows you to trim videos, combine clips from different videos, add music, and create text, titles and credits. We've provided a quick overview, followed by detailed instructions on all of Movie Creator's features.

QUICK OVERVIEW

1.  Log in to your Pixorial account.

2.  Click the ”Create Movie” button at the top of your screen.

Once Movie Creator opens, you can either select a previous production or simply start a new production by selecting “Create New.”

3. Add your first video clip by selecting the “+” button and then “Video.” Work your way across the timeline adding more items by clicking the “+” buttons at the spot you would like to add them. Note that you can reorder the items in the storyboard by simply dragging them to a different position.


Click the “Play” button to view what you’ve done.

 

4.  Save your work by clicking the “Save” button.  You can leave Movie Creator by clicking on “Return to Library” and come back later to do more editing.  Movies you’re still working on will show up in your Library with a grey “In Production” thumbnail.

When you’re satisfied with your work, open your video in Movie Creator and select “Finalize Movie.”  Your video will be rendered into your Pixorial Library, which can take some time depending on file size and server loads.  In the meantime, your video will have a grey “Processing” icon.
