Before starting this tutorial, you should…download the exercise files to your desktop then double click on the folder to…open it.

Double-click on the movie and let's take a…look at it. This is a piece of high definition footage…that I shot in the Virgin Islands and it's a beautiful coastline with some waves…crashing in on it.
