How I start my project ?

There is no project concept with 011.video. Edit short video footage and save your work as a traditional video designer. At the end mix your video chunks all together.

Can I save my video in a workspace ?

The answer is no !
Workspace is a computer geek concept. People involve in film making work around script, storyboard, footage… but no computer project. So to make the creating process fast and easy, 011.video do not use timeline, layers, templates and others computer nerds stuff.
As a movie director you have to work on your video by making short footage until the final video editing. If you are not satisfied by the result you need to build a new video footage again.
Thanks 011.video editing is a real time process. As long as the video is not recording, you are able to go back to previous steps and make some changes. So if you plan to make a complex video, make sure to prepare all video components (video, audio, image, text) in a directory to reuse them easily.

I don’t see any timeline !

There is no timeline concept at 011.video. You edit in real time. This means that everything is recorded in real time as soon as you press the Record button. The great advantage of 011.video editor is that you can interact with your video in real time, for example by drawing over a video while it is playing.
