Importing footage from other systems

Adding marks to clips

Making indices of clips

Adding clips to a show

Navigating the timeline view

Moving and adjusting bricks in the timeline view

Creating an edit in a show

Creating an effect in a show

Mixing audio

Outputting a show to DV

Converting DV to another format
