There is documentation in the Ardour manual:


Keep in mind that A3 does not provide video editing capabiltiies, you
will still need a video NLE like kdenlive, Blender, LightWorks, etc.,
to do the video editing. Once you have the video portion done, after
you export a render from your video NLE, you can import that into A3
and setup a video timeline to start working on SFX and music.
