4. To select a different portion of the video, simply drag one of the circular buttons located to the left or right of the progress bar. In the subsequent stage, only the content that falls between the two white buttons will be copied to a  new movie; the other content will be removed from the existing one.

If you wish to preview a different portion of the video, you can also drag the grey button that is located above the selection in the appropriate direction.

5. Select Keep a copy of it. The portion that you trimmed will be exported to a new file, saved to the same location as the original with _Trim attached to its name, and then opened automatically after it has been saved.

7. You can divide the video at any point you like by dragging the button through the progress bar until you reach the desired place. This will result in the creation of two unique video clips, each of which can be edited in greater detail shortly.

Since we are going to delete anything that appears before the opening credits, the first thing that we need to do in our example is break apart the beginning so that it is distinct from the part that comes before the opening credits. Now let’s move the button to the beginning of the credits so we can watch them. While you are adjusting the button, the length of each clip will be displayed on the right panel.

When you have made your choice, select the Done option.

8. Both of the video can be found on the Storyboard area at this point. Pick the one that you wish to divide once more, and then go back to step 7.

Since we are only going to be removing a portion of the closing credits during the following phase, we need to divide the video up at the point where it begins to play so that we may do so.

9. Repeating the methods from the previous section will allow you to continue separating your video clips as necessary. You may also utilise the Trim button on any clip, and you can rearrange the elements of the storyboard by dragging and dropping them.

10. When you are finished, you can use the trash button to get rid of the clips that you do not want to be included in the  final video by selecting them and then clicking the trash button.

11. You can watch a preview of the entire video by choosing the first clip and then using the play button in the area that displays the previews. If something is incorrect, you can correct it by using the undo button located at the top of  the screen.

12. Click the Finish video button, select a quality setting, and then click the Export button.

13. After determining where you want to save the video and what you want to call the file, pick Export once more.
