Chapter 10. Adding Digital Video > Editing QuickTime Files

Editing QuickTime Files

Director allows you to perform simple video editing operations in the QuickTime preview window. Editing a QuickTime cast member makes permanent changes to the linked external file, so be sure to make a backup copy of the file before you begin. (Important: The Undo command doesn’t work for QuickTime editing.)

Editing in the QuickTime window is essentially a two-stage process: First, you select one or more frames and cut or copy them to your computer’s clipboard; then you paste those frames into a new location. That new location may be within the same QuickTime cast member, in a different QuickTime cast member, or in a brand-new cast member (in which case you’re actually creating a new, external QuickTime file).
