The three main sections of the Wochit Studio Workspace are as follows:

  • Lightbox - As you search for and select media to use in your video, this is where that media is housed.
  • Preview - This is where you preview your video in real time as you edit.
  • Timeline Editor - This is where you do most of your video editing; adjusting media times, adding text and effects, inserting music, etc.

In the header, you will find:

  • Aspect Ratio - This is where you choose the best output for you video. Wide 16:9, Portrait 4:5, Square 1:1, and Vertical 9:16 are all supported.
  • Video Info - This is where you define the title, description, tags, category, attribution, date, and thumbnail for your video.
