Using the Microsoft Photos a Using the Microsoft Photos app pp to Clip Videos to Clip Videos Installing the Installing the Microsoft Photos a Microsoft Photos app The Windows 10 operating system does not support Windows Moviemaker. Instead, the ITC recommends using the Photos app to clip videos. The Microsoft Photos app is free to download from the Microsoft Store. https://www.microsoft.com/en- us/store/p/microsoft-photos/9wzdncrfjbh4 pp for Windows 10 for Windows 10 **Note: The Microsoft Photos app is only available on computers that run Windows 10. It is not available for Macs. The ITC recommends using iMovie for clipping videos on a Mac. iMovie is a free application that can be installed from the Mac App Store. After Filming After Filming The ITC staff recommends that you import your videos to your device in one of two ways. The first is to remove the SD card from the camera, and insert it into the SD card port on your laptop or desktop. Most Windows and Apple devices have a built-in SD card port. The second way to import video is through an SD card reader. Use an SD Card Reader when your laptop or desktop does not have a built-in SD card port, or if the port does not recognize the SD card. The SD card reader connects to your computer via a USB port. SD card readers are available for purchase from the ITC or at office supply stores. If you buy one, choose a high speed reader, which will make the process of transferring videos to your computer much faster. Importing Videos to a Computer Importing Videos to a Computer Use the File Explorer to Open the Video Files and Move Them to Your Computer Click on the File Explorer shortcut located on the taskbar at the bottom of the screen to find the SD card.  Once the File Explorer window is open, double-click on the SD Card you have inserted (generally this is the E:, I:, or J: drive). Double-click on the DCIM folder (which contains video and image files) **Note: If you are using a SD card reader look for the USB drive instead. Look for the folder within DCIM which shows the date you recorded your files and double-click to open it.   Created by: JoDarius Seibles, Kiersten Warfield, and the ITC Staff October 2018
