Using quick trimming

QuickTime X in Snow Leopard offers a new way to edit your videos and I would say it's a significant improvement over the previous method found in QuickTime 7. I have opened up the movie SouthernUtah.m4v from the Exercise Files folder. Now there will most likely be times, probably most commonly after you have made a new movie recording or screen recording in QuickTime, when you want to clip or trim off parts of your movie, like at the beginning where maybe you cleared your voice before you started speaking, or at the end where it maybe had some empty space with no action while you were trying to stop the recording. Whatever the case may be, to edit your movie, choose Edit > Trim or press Command+T and that opens the Trim controls.
