When you start Movie Maker, a new, untitled project opens. A project contains the arrangement and timing information of audio and video clips, video transitions, video effects, and titles you have added to the storyboard/timeline. You can view a project in one of two views: Storyboard view , which shows the order of your clips, and Timeline view , which shows the duration of each clip and the types of transitions between them as well as the sound track. To create a movie, you drag video and audio clips from your Collections area to the project file's storyboard or timeline and rearrange the clips in any order you want. After you preview your project using the monitor and are satisfied with the results, you save it as a movie file.
