Hi, Nicole. After importing your clip to the program,you need to drag it from the Resource library to the timeline panel. Then click \"Edit\" button (the pencil-shaped button) above the timeline panel. At this moment, the Edit box will pop up.

If you have any problem,please don\'t hesitate to contact us.
