Inserting Video Into Kino

Once Kino starts, the main screen will display:

To insert your first clip, click on the "insert before" (Kino Insert Before icon) or "insert after" (Kino Insert After icon) icon in the toolbar. This will bring up a file selection dialogue box: select the video file you wish to insert, then click "OK":

If the file is not in Kino's preferred format (.dv), then it will ask you if you want to convert the video file - just click "OK":

Once completed, you should see a thumbnail of the imported video in the left hand "storyboard" pane:

Note: if you want to want to insert one video file part way through another, you will need to use the "split" icon (-see next section) to split the original scene at the place you want to insert the new footage. Once this is done, you can then use the "insert before" or "insert after" icons to import the video as a new scene between the two parts of the original
