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.

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.

This is awesome. I'm one of those people that shoots everything and leave the camera on record continuously. So of course I have to do a lot of cutting usable footage into shorter clips to make something bearable to watch. This is the tool for the job!
Really great "How To" instructions and a Free Trial download. It doesn't get much better than that!
Hi, Gwen, please kindly noted that this program doesn't support DVD files originally, so you need to convert your DVD to other popular formats like WMV, MOV, AVI first. To do this, you can use this video converter. When you complete the conversion, you can follow the above steps to cut your video into clips for uploading or other uses. Don't worry, this program will keep your original file intact.
So if I have a DVD and I just want to take a part of it to either put online or create a new DVD with this small piece, i can use this program? I do not want to lose anything from the original DVD. I want it left intact. I Just want to have a portion of it copied for personal use.
Hi Cookie, of course you can do this by our software. First import the two videos to the program and drag the two videos to the video track below. Trim the videos respectively to cut the scenes you don't need according to the tutorial. And finally click "Create" then you can get the video with the two trimmed videos merging together.
Does this let you take parts of one video and mush it with another one? Im trying to make a commercial for a school project and I need to cut parts out of the video and add parts of another one we made to it.
