To use the Monitor to trim or crop a clip that's already in the Timeline

After you've made a “rough cut” of your movie, you might need to fine-tune the duration of clips that are in the Timeline so you can sync with the beat of an imported soundtrack, or just to change the pacing of the movie.

1.
Click on a single clip in the Timeline so it shows in the Monitor.

2.
Use the crop markers beneath the Monitor's Scrubber Bar to select a range of frames in the clip.

3.
To crop the clip (remove everything in the clip except the selected frames), go to the Edit menu and choose “Crop.”

4.
To trim the clip (remove the selected frames), use the crop markers beneath the Scrubber Bar to make a selection of frames, then press the Delete key.
