Topic: Video Editing with Premiere Elements 2.0
Host: Colette Cassinelli

Come learn how to capture, edit and make DVDs of your videos using Premiere Elements.

We will also learn how to use a "green screen" and combine two videos (or a picture and video) together.

You can also practice narrations with Audacity, a free audio recorder.

Those who are interested can also preview Photo Story 3 for Windows– a free slideshow program that will take still pictures, audio recordings, music and text and create simple slideshow videos. This is a great alternative if you don't have a digital camcorder but still want to make videos.
