I spent just about all of our 3 hour class editing this video, and I’m sure I could have done it faster and better if I knew more about the software. But overall I think I did well relative to my other projects. This is the first time I added music, and it turned out to be really easy. I just found a site that had sound which was royalty free, saved the sound I wanted, and imported the sound to Adobe.
