Putting it all Together

When you have most or all of your research done, images and sound collected, and original content produced, you can start to edit everything together. You can do the editing of your project in either iMovie, Final Cut Pro or Adobe Premiere Pro. You can work on the audio directly in the program you are using to edit or work on the sound in Garageband or Audacity and then import it into your editing program at the end.
