im new to video editing, i filmed some stuff on my canon 550D and then transfered everything that i filmed sto my lap top and then to pinnacle studio 14 ulitimate HD.
my first question is, must i change any settings or formats to the video that i imported before i edit?
second question, i started editing the video, when i added transitions and played it back to see what the transition looked like in the film, the transition didnt work and instead it showed an exclamation mark before it cut to the next scene.
please can somebody help me out here.
any advice on video editing would also be appreciated.
