Chapter 3. iMovie > To trim clips directly in the Timeline

To trim clips directly in the Timeline

After you've made a rough cut of your movie, you'll may want to trim a little more footage from some of the clips in your movie. An easy way to trim a clip (remove footage from the beginning or end of the clip) is to do it directly in the Timeline: drag an edge of the clip towards the center of the clip.

Before you trim a clip in the Timeline, go to the View menu and make sure the “Show Clip Volume Levels” option is not selected. A clip volume level shows in the Timeline as a horizontal black line in the video track, as shown below. You cannot drag clip edges and trim clips in the Timeline when clip volume levels are shown.
