To assemble the movie clips:
Adobe Premiere Elements has video-editing tools that meet many needs. You can split long clips to manage them better and preview or trim clips to keep only the precious moments. You can also configure clip properties, such as speed, direction, and duration.
If you have long clips, you can split them into smaller clips. Smaller clips are easier to manage and edit.
Trimming helps you to keep a movie clip at a desired duration. You can also remove those not-so-perfect moments from the beginning or end of a clip.
Transitions help you to add visual continuity between consecutive clips and create smooth movements from one moment to another in your movie.
