Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Trimming a video clip, part of Creative Slideshows with Aperture.
Let's go ahead and take a look at our timeline to get an idea how long…things are running.…I'm going to switch back from the browser to Split View, and you will see that…the timeline updates.…Now this particular video shot we dropped in is 40 seconds long.…Even if this was the most interesting video in the world, it probably doesn't…need to be 40 seconds long.…In fact, if we watch this, you'll see that there is a little bit of bobbling in the beginning.…(video playing)…Let's go ahead and make a few adjustments.…
First off, I'm going to go ahead and close the audio browser, and then I want…to access this clip to modify it, so we'll select it down here and…double-click on the clip.…I can now mouse over and click at the gear icon to choose Trim.…This allows me to grab the handles and I'm going to drag past the beginning…where it was a little bit shaky.…And then come down here to the end and just shorten things up.…
I could then click Trim and the clip is made shorter, in this case about nine seconds.…
