    Unable to set up video for editing

    BALDWIN2925

      I am a novice and am using the trial version of Premiere Elements 8.  I have gone through the Using Adobe Premiere Elements 8 product support quite a few times over the past several days and am not able to figure out how to set up videos for editing.

       

      When I am in Elements Organizer, the various files on my hard drive show on the left.  Two video files converted to MPEG show in a middle column.  I can play them by double clicking on them.  However, I am totally lost on how to set them up so that I can edit them (cutting into clips, improving lighting, etc).  Would someone please let me know either how to set up my videos for editing or let me know where there are help discussions or tutorials.

       

      Thanks for any help.
