Three Ways to Trim a Clip Whatever Edit menu command you use now (such as Cut, Copy, Clear, or Crop) affects only the yellow portion. Tip: Here's a quick trick for highlighting only the frst portion of a selected clip: Shift-click within the Scrubber bar at the point where you'd like the selection to end. Instantly, iMovie highlights everything from the left end of the clip to the position of your click. Figure 5-6: Carefully drag horizontally until the triangles enclose only the scene you want to keep. Finally, when you choose the Edit Crop command, everything outside of these handles is trimmed away.
