2. Manually cut videos
Drag videos from the User's Album to the video track on the Timeline and following these instructions to cut video files. Firstly, move the slider to the position you want to cut the video. If you want to remove one part, just split it out and remove it by clicking Delete on the toolbar or right menu. Repeat the process to cut a video into multiple pieces. But you have to save multiple sections for different files one by one after deleting unwanted parts.
3. Automatically cut videos
To quickly find the segment you want to cut, the "Scene Detection" function will help you a lot. Highlight the video in item tray (not the timeline), right click it and select "Scene Detection" to separate your videos into different parts, and then get your wanted part easily.
4. Export your video
When you have finished the cutting, click "Create". You can save video in other formats on the local computer by clicking "Format" and specify some necessary settings. If you want to play video creation on iPod, iPhone, iPad, click "Device" and select the thumbnail of your devices. You can also share your videos on YouTube directly or burn video to DVD discs for better video preservation.
