Open Video Maker

Opening Video Maker will automatically add captions to your video: you need to choose the language of your captions and wait while it generates, the process can take a minute.

Select a video that you want to edit, (1) click on the 3 dots, and choose (2) Edit

👀 If you filmed with Green Screen, you need to change the background first before opening the Video Maker

The Take Screen opens, and you can choose the take that you want to style, by clicking on the 3-dots menu
