Three steps to edit MPEG4

Step 1. Add MPEG4 video files

To begin with, start Aura Video Editor to do the MPEG4 editing work. Click on Import button to add MPEG4 videos to the main panel. If you'd like to add images and audio files along with the MPEG4, so then you can edit MPEG4 with those, click Import to add, too. Or you can directly drag&drop them to the main panel.

Then you can drag and drop the MPEG4 videos, images and audio files to the editing panel. Before you drop the first MPEG4 video file to the video editing area, the MPEG4 editor will prompt a box and give you the chance to add the chapter name to your MPEG4 editing file and choose the aspect ratio between 4:3 and 16:9.

You can choose from two editing modes: Storybox- and Timeline-mode.
