How To Cut A Video

Cutting is quick and easy, and one of the core parts of video editing. It’s extremely rare that you would ever film something perfect in camera, without wanting to trim a bit here or remove a section there. Cutting a video involves literally splitting a clip into two smaller clips. You can cut anywhere, and you’ll get very familiar with this when removing mistakes or any unwanted lines of dialogue.
