Editing ScreenCasts : Media Library

Media Library
The media library stores all recorded and imported media in an unaltered state. This material may be dragged to your timeline or canvas to add it to your project. Dragging the content to the canvas or timeline more than once duplicates the content.
Media created by ScreenFlow is saved in a file in ScreenFlow format, with an scc extension. This is a proprietary format which can only be utilized by ScreenFlow.
You can import media by dragging the media from the Finder to your media library, and export media by dragging the media out to your desktop, target folder or server.
You can rename media files in your library by highlighting the media, then clicking on the name below. This also renames all associated clips on the timeline unless they have already been given a custom name.
