Create a New Project: record a target movie (no source movie)

If you want to record someone signing a narrative or if you want to record a live interaction with both a signed language and a spoken language you record the video without a source movie.

Open the Project Manager

You have to be in the Project Manager to create a new project. When VideoLinkwell first opens it is in the Project manager. If you are in the Project Browse mode click the 'Back' button to return to the Project Manager.
