Can I import and edit an mp4 or other video?

Yes, with Deluxe, Premier, and Max Plans you can import a video file to use in the video editor.  The videos you import must be in one of the following formats:  .mp4, .mov, .webm, .screenpal, or .somrec.

To import a video, open the Project Manager and click the Import icon in the toolbar at the top left.
