Chapter 14. Building the Movie > Three Ways to Trim a Clip

14.5. Three Ways to Trim a Clip

Trimming out the deadwood from your clips, so that you're left with only the very best shots from the very best scenes, is the heart of iMovie—and video editing.


Note:

The following three techniques are nondestructive techniques, just like the edge-dragging business described earlier. For example, after you've shortened a clip by hacking a piece off the right end, you can later change your mind, even if you've emptied the Trash and let a year go by. You can restore some or all of the missing footage just by dragging the clip's right edge to the right in the Timeline Viewer.
