From there, click the Log In With Google button.

Enter your GBS username and password if prompted, then you're ready to get started!  The links below will cover some of the beginning basics to get you going.

Adding Media to Your Project

Editing Modes: Storyboard vs Timeline

WeVideo supports two different interfaces for editing a video.  Which one is right for you?

Storyboard: This is a simplified mode that is easier for beginners to use.  If you've never done any video editing before, try starting here (click thumbnail to enlarge).

Timeline: A more traditional, full-featured editing interface.  If you've used something like Windows Movie Maker or iMovie before, you'll feel right at home with the Timeline mode.  Some more advanced features like picture in picture or multiple audio tracks are only available in the Timeline mode.  If you want to create a more complex video, use the Timeline mode (click thumbnail to enlarge).

More info on the differences between the Storyboard and Timeline modes can be found HERE.
