Three steps to edit WMV

Step 1. Add WMV video files

To begin with, start Aura Video Editor to do the WMV editing work. Click on Import button to add WMV videos to the main panel. If you'd like to add images and audio files along with the WMV, so then you can edit WMV with those, click Import to add, too. Or you can directly drag&drop them to the main panel.

Then you can drag and drop the WMV videos, images and audio files to the editing panel. Before you drop the first WMV video file to the video editing area, the WMV editor will prompt a box and give you the chance to add the chapter name to your WMV editing file and choose the aspect ratio between 4:3 and 16:9.

You can choose from two editing modes: Storybox- and Timeline-mode.
