How to Check Media Files in the Media Library?

In the media library of MiniTool MovieMaker, it will list all uploaded media files in the My Album subtab. Video files all come with a video recorder icon, music files come with a music symbol, and pictures come with nothing. You can sort the uploaded video clips or photos in certain order by right-clicking on any of them and select Sort by.

The media files you uploaded to the program will be automatically saved. However, when next time you enter the program, those files will disappear. The media library can only show the media files for the current project. If you have uploaded the wrong files or you don’t need some files anymore, you can right-click on them and select Delete.

Batch deletion is available. Just choose multiple files, right-click, and choose Delete.

How to Add Media Files to Timeline?

Simply click the plus icon (+) on the target files to add them to the timeline in sequence. Or just drag and drop the media files to the desired location on the timeline. You can add multiple media files at a time.

  • If you have a video or photo selected on the video track, when you add another video/photo by clicking the + icon, the new video/photo will be placed at the right of the selected file.
  • If no media file is selected on the video track, the new media file added by the + icon will be placed at the end of the track.
  • On the video track, if you add a new file by dragging, just release the new file where you’d like it to be. If there is already a file in the location, the current file will be moved rightward.
  • To change the media files’ order on the video track, just click on the target file. When the mouse turns into a four-headed arrow, drag the file to where you want it to be. If you move the target file rightwards to a desired location, the file on the target location will be pushed leftwards and located right before the target file. Vice versa, if you move the target file leftwards, the file on the target location will be pushed rightwards right after the target file.
  • On the audio track, the newly added (by + icon) audio files will be placed at the right of the playhead.
  • To change the order of audio files on the audio track, there must be sufficient space at the destination. Otherwise, the audio file at the target location may be partially or completely replaced.
To delete a media file from the timeline, you can right-click on it and select Delete. Or just select it and click the trash icon on the timeline toolbar or press Delete on the keyboard. Batch deletion is available.

In general, it’s easy to add media files into MiniTool MovieMaker. After editing, you can export your video from MiniTool MovieMaker.
