How to Split, Cut and Trim Videos

By Maliek Whitaker

In this tutorial, you will learn how to split, cut, and trim your video clips to remove segments of a video from the beginning, middle or end. Using the Split button or Trim function on the timeline, or Trim mode, will allow you to remove unwanted parts of a clip and keep only the segments you want to include. Pinnacle Studio Pro Maliek also shows you how to use multiple tools to adjust your video clips so that your videos have the flow and continuity that you’re looking to achieve. You will also see how different timeline modes impact the use of the Split button and Trim mode.

    I have no problem with cropping and trimming my video. I see that Pinnacle 21 has removed the audio tool. Why? This makes my work valueless and believe I should return to Pinnacle 19 -20 although the NG studio crashes so consistantly it is no good either.

      Hello Ralph,

      The audio tools were moved in Pinnacle Studio 21, but are still in the program! You can find the specifics on the new audio interface starting on page 233 of the User Guide.

      Hope this helps,
