Cutting Videos Using Movavi Video Editor

General Article

One of the most important parts of creating and editing videos is cutting them. In the past the term ‘cutting’ was used because reels of film used to literally be cut in order to remove unwanted parts. Nowadays that is no longer the case, and ‘cutting’ videos refers to splitting videos into segments to remove parts or compile a video.

If you’re looking for an easy way to cut videos, you should definitely try Movavi Video Editor. It is a user-friendly editor that requires no prior experience, and you should be able to cut a video with its help in a matter of minutes.

All that you need to do is launch Movavi Video Editor and click ‘Add Media Files’ to add the video that you want to cut. It will appear in the ‘Timeline’ once it has been added, and you can then click on it to select it.

To split the video at a specific point, you should move the red marker to that point then click on the ‘scissors’ icon located above Movavi Video Editor’s ‘Timeline’. Assuming you’d like to remove a segment you should keep cutting the video until you isolate it, then select it and press ‘Delete’ on your keyboard.

Aside from removing unwanted segments, you can drag around video segments to rearrange them after they’ve been cut. On top of that the other features in Movavi Video Editor will let you enhance the video quality, apply special effects and filters, add animated transitions, insert captions, include audio tracks, and more.

It would be a good idea to explore these features and try them out as they could really help you to make your videos look more impressive. When you’re satisfied and want to save your video, all you need to do is click ‘Export’ then select a format and click ‘Start’. Instead of selecting a format you could use the presets in Movavi Video Editor that will help optimize your video for specific devices or platforms.

As you can see it is really easy to split videos into segments and ‘cut’ them in any way that you need using Movavi Video Editor. By taking advantage of the other features that are present you will be able to not only alter and tweak your videos, but even produce professional-looking and high quality video content of your own if you want to.
