Creating Your Own Project
We'll begin by creating a new movie file and importing images to the Collection Bin. The images will then be added to the movie timeline in the appropriate order and duration. We'll add caption text to each of the images, as well as effects and transitions. Finally, we'll preview the movie to be sure that it is the way we want it to be, before exporting the file in Windows Media Player format so others can watch it, too.
