Chapter 8. Editing Video > Editing Clips

Editing Clips

Remember in Chapter 2 when I advised you to shoot plenty of footage? Take a moment to look back on those lingering, leisurely days, because in this chapter you’re going to chop your film into the smallest pieces you can, and still keep it comprehensible. Part of your job as editor is to arrange the many pieces into a unified whole, but you also want to keep your audience awake.

iMovie offers four methods for editing clips: splitting, which divides a clip where the Playhead is located; trimming, which deletes a selection of frames; cropping, which deletes the frames that aren’t selected; and copying and pasting, which creates a new clip based on selected frames. These actions can be performed on clips that are on the Shelf or in the Viewers.
