To ensure trouble free editing follow this guide;


• Always switch on the video player/camcorder a few seconds before starting to record onto Casablanca. This stabilizes the sync between player and Casablanca preventing glitches later on.


• After loading your film into Casablanca, split, trim and add clips in the required order to the story board.


• Add transitions and special effects. Transitions slightly shorten the story board by overlapping clips. If titles are added first the space may alter requiring titles to be re-made.


• Create titles. By using the range controls, titles may be started part way through a clip or span several clips.


• Add sound. The narration track and original video track are locked to the picture. The third track is not. Again, use the range control to determine where your sound starts and stops.


• Remember, when laying down the music tracks do not make any changes to the video, otherwise the video clips will move away from the sound or may be removed entirely.


IMPORTANT!  As with all equipment using Firewire connection you must not attempt to connect the Firewire lead while both pieces of equipment are turned on. This could damage either or both pieces of equipment.
