How to Trim a Video with Movavi Video Editor

Have you recorded a video that is absolutely great, except for a couple of seconds when the camera went out of focus? Perhaps you have a long video where you’re only really interested in a certain part and would rather not have to keep the entire thing around? In both those cases if you were able to ‘trim’ your video and get rid of the parts that you don’t need, you’d be far better off.

Although you may not know how to trim video right now, it doesn’t have to be as complicated as you probably imagine it to be. By using Movavi Video Editor, you can actually trim any video with just a few steps:

  1. Click ‘Add Media Files’ and select the video that you want to trim.
  2. Find the video in the ‘Timeline’ and move the red marker to the part that you want to trim.
  3. Click the scissors icon to ‘split’ the video at that part.
  4. Repeat step 2 and 3 as necessary to isolate the segments of video that you want to remove and then click on them and hit ‘Delete’.
  5. When you’re done, save your video by clicking ‘Export’.


If you just want to trim either the start or end of your video you’ll only need to split it once. However if you want to trim a segment in the middle of the video then you will have to split it twice. That being said considering it is so easy to split the video using Movavi Video Editor, you should be able to get it done relatively quickly regardless.

In addition to helping you to trim your videos so easily, Movavi Video Editor also has countless other features that may help you to improve your videos. It can enhance the video quality, correct any issues with the recording, apply filters and special effects, add customizable text, insert audio tracks, and even include stylish animated transitions between scenes.

Whether you choose to use these additional features or not is up to you – but rest assured they are just as intuitive as the process of trimming your video. All that you need to do is try them out and experiment with them, and in just a few minutes you’ll be able to apply most of the features in Movavi Video Editor without any trouble.
