Pick your clips

In Nikon ViewNX-i, browse to a folder of clips and stills. Shift-click to se­lect the as­sets that you want to com­bine into a movie. Click on the Movie icon in the panel at the top-right, and then click on the Cre­ate New Movie icon to launch the ViewNX-Movie Editor app.

Drag and crop

Choose a tran­si­tion style for your movie (such as Wipe). Drag your stills and clips around in the Sto­ry­board un­til they play in the or­der that you want. Use the Du­ra­tion Set­tings win­dow to trim away un­wanted footage and cre­ate tighter shots. Click on a clip’s T icon to add a de­scrip­tive cap­tion.

Preview and cre­ate

Once you’ve trimmed the clips, added cap­tions and made stills move (see An­no­ta­tion 05, above), preview the movie by click­ing the play but­ton un­der the main viewer. When you’re happy with your con­tent click Cre­ate Movie. Choose a suit­able ex­port set­ting such as YouTube. Click Out­put.
