After shooting your movie, it’s time to edit it. Whether you're using Adobe Premiere Elements to work with your footage or some other program, keep the following in mind:

  • Transfer the video files to your hard drive.

  • Provide as much metadata as possible.

  • Always start a new project.

  • Keep your files organized.

  • Name your project before starting it and save often.

  • Make sure you have enough hard drive space to edit. Check the editing program's minimum requirements.
