When you're working on your project if you find that one of the clips doesn't look right when viewed in context of the whole project- (Music playing.) you can either delete it or move it. To delete it from your project, just click to select it and press the Delete key. Of course, the clip remains in your iMovie Library. It's only been removed from the current project. Now if you accidentally delete the wrong clip from your project, just choose Edit > Undo Delete Selection or press Command+Z. To move the clip somewhere else in the project, just select it and then drag it to the new location.
At other times, one of the clips from the project looks good but there's just one section that doesn't work. Maybe the camera shakes or the focus goes wrong. Here there is a slight zoom adjustment at the end of the clip that looks a little awkward. (Music playing and crowd noises.) All I need to do is drag through the problem area and press the Delete key to remove it. (Music playing and crowd noises.) Alternately, for larger problems you can highlight the section you want to keep and remove the rest.
Here again towards the end we have a shaky section. So I'll select the entire clip before the problem area and this time choose Edit > Trim to Selection. We'll look at more precise ways to trim your video in the coming lessons.
