I need to remove a very brief section from my video. After several efforts no success. What am I doing wrong?
Speak as though you were talking to a small child.
Do you want to remove an entire clip, parts of a clip or from the middle of a clip?
To identify what you're doing wrong, we need to know what you were doing. Can you provide more details on the steps you took?
From the middle of the clip.
In the trimmer window I run the video to the beginning of where I want to cut, click In point button, run the video to end of where I want to cut, click the Out point button.
Drag to timeline.
Have tried to remove section with Slice, Ripple Effect, and Selection then delete.
No success thus far.
Greatly appreciate the video; unfortunately the audio is not working, at least for me. Possible to get a summary of the steps outlined there?
There is no audio in the video. I don't have a mic on my PC. Since I have no mic I visibly selected tool(s) and used the right click context menu to select a command. Normally I would use keyboard shortcuts but that would not be visible.
That is not the only way to delete something. There is ripple delete which will move all clips from right to left. I just used one clip to keep things as basic as possible.
Thanks so much for the detailed instructions, and for the time it took to make the video. It is greatly appreciated.
@bkburkhead As a quick follow-up, the Trimmer panel is for taking a full-length clip and making it shorter by trimming off the ends. It won't let you take things out of the middle.
