You can import source videos in two ways: by clicking the “Add Video” button and selecting “Add Video File” or “Add Video folder” on your actual needs to load videos, or by directly dragging and dropping files to the program.
After importing the movie, you can get a preview of the video in high quality thanks to the built-in Blu-ray player module. Click the play button on the thumbnail of the video you have just imported, and you can get an instant preview of your video in high quality.
The built-in player offers a snapshot shortcut which allows you to take a snapshot at the current screen; an edit shortcut which brings you to the edit panel (See Part 6. How to edit video with Leawo Blu-ray Creator foe Mac for more details) and an open shortcut which enables you to import another video.

The bar next to the Aspect Ratio shows how big the final file is going to be.
Before you get to the next step, you can choose the subtitles and sound tracks you like from file. Click to choose the subtitles you want, you can even import one from your computer. Click to choose a sound track in the file. (Note: You can only choose one set of subtitles and one sound track for the output file.)
