Anime Music Videos Assembling Your Video

Guest Author - Lesley Aeschliman

After you have acquired the anime footage that you need for your video, it's time to arrange that footage into your final project. In order to do this, you will need movie editing software.

The following table is being provided for informational purposes only, so you can conduct your own research and decide what software will best suit your needs. I also am not necessarily endorsing any of these software packages in any way. Of these software packages, the only one I have any real familiarity with is Windows Movie Maker, since that is already a part of the Windows operating system.

Here are some movie editing software packages that are available for download on the internet:

Adobe PremiereBlaze Media Pro
Video Edit Magic ExpressWindows Movie Maker


Since I have some experience with Windows Movie Maker, I will give some basic instructions on how to use it. However, if you end up choosing to use a different movie editing software package, you will need to refer to the manual or instructions that come with it to know the specifics for how to use that particular software.

If you are using Windows Movie Maker, it's best to have a directory on your hard drive set up specifically for the video files you intend to use for your project. If you do this, then using Windows Movie Maker will be really simple to use, because all you will need to do is drag and drop.

After opening up Windows Movie Maker, look on the left-hand side for the "Capture Video" title. Under this title will be "Import Video"; you need to click on that. Then, click on all of the video files that you ripped for your project. The software will load all of your footage into the working area. In the working area, each file will be broken up into segments that are easy to manage. All the segments for a given file are organized into a "collection." You can move between the collections by using the drop-down at the top of the menu.

On the lower part of the screen, there is a "timeline" button. Click on it so you can see your timeline area. The lower area is one long bar that has time markers, and the time markers show what will play at each second. You need to drag your blocks of anime footage onto that timeline in the order that you want to see them. Assume you have file-001 and file-002 as two video files that you want to include in your project. If you want file-002 to show first, you just need to drag file-002 onto the timeline, and line it up at the 0:00 start time. Then, you would drag file-001 onto the timeline, and have it begin after the end of file-002.

With Windows Movie Maker, you can also choose which part of each file you want to play. If you put your mouse at the beginning or end of a file on the timelime, you can cut down the segment that actually plays. When you have the file down to what you want, click on the "play" button that is right over the timeline area to check and make sure the file is cut down to what you actually want.

Whether you use Windows Movie Maker or some other movie editing software, the next step after your assemble your footage is to work with your audio and get it to match your footage.
