blenders other features

so far, ive learned pretty well how to use blender for modelling, texturing, animation, and effects (particles and waves). but i would like to create a complete short animation, and i wanna use blender for other parts. anyone know where i learn to use blender’s action editor (what is this?), NLA editor (what is this?), video sequence editor, and audio timeline?

Get a copy of the Blender 2.3 Manual, it’s all explained in it.
