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.

Hi, sorry for the delay in reply. Actually you could go to the menu button, then press undo button to restore the music that you have edited. Or you could delete all the music segments on music track, then reload the music file from media library. Either way works. Thanks´╝ü
Help! How do I put music back together after I have edited it?
Our telephone service is available from Mon-Fri, 9am to 6pm GMT+8, for the time difference, I'm afraid it is not convenient to call you at this moment. I hope you can understand. Thanks!
To delete the first part of a clip, you have to drag the time indicator to the position that you need to split, then video will be divided into two parts. Then choose the first part and right click to choose delete. Here is the video tutorial for your reference. http://www.wondershare.com/video-editor/edit-a-video-clip.html
