Cutting Videos with Movavi Video Editor


Being able to cut your video into parts can be useful to either rearrange the sequence of its footage, or remove specific parts from your video. It is one    of the most common types of edits performed on videos, and so it would definitely benefit you to know how to perform it.

That is especially true seeing as Movavi Video Editor will make it easy for you to cut videos, and before you know it you’ll be able to process your video footage much more effectively. In fact with a bit of experimentation you will even be able to compile better videos.

If you’d like to start to cut a video, launch Movavi Video Editor and click on the ‘Add Media Files’ button then select the video that you want to cut. It will appear in the ‘Timeline’ area once it has been added, and you can then click on it to select it.

To cut your video, you will need to first move the marker in the ‘Timeline’ to the point where you want to cut in and then click on the ‘Split’ icon (i.e. the scissors) to cut it at that point. Sometimes you may need to use Movavi Video Editor to cut your video twice if you want to isolate segments that are in the middle of the video.

After you’ve isolated a segment, you can drag it around in the ‘Timeline’ to rearrange it. If you’d like to remove it, just click on the segment then press the ‘Delete’ button on your keyboard. The other method of deleting video segments in Movavi Video Editor is to right-click the segment and select ‘Delete’ in the menu that appears.

Now that you know how to cut your video and trim out unwanted parts or rearrange video segments, you could experiment with the other features in Movavi Video Editor. With their help you’ll be able to enhance the quality of your videos, apply artistic filters, utilize special effects, add captions, insert audio tracks, and more.

Between all the features that Movavi Video Editor will place at your disposal, you’ll have no shortage of methods in which you can edit and improve your videos. All you need to determine is what you’d like your video to look like, and you can then apply the features that you need and work towards making sure it fits your vision.
