Editing video

Acer Arcade offers the capability to edit captured video clips, photos and 
footage from a camcorder into a movie. You can also select a movie style, and 
add special transition effects and music to create the perfect home movie.
To edit a movie, click Advanced, and then select "Edit Video." Then select the 
clips you wish to edit from your folders. To complete your movie, you may also  
choose a "Movie Style," "Background Music," the perfect ratio of music and 
audio, as well as the length of the movie. 
"Select Scenes" can be used to include your favorite or the most important 
scenes, or the editing decisions can be left to the editing program.
Once compiled, the final movie can then be burned to disk to share with family 
and friends.
