Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Deleting unneeded footage, part of iMovie for iOS Essential Training.
…After importing or recording video into iMovie, chances are…there'll be some clips that you just don't need.…So there are two ways to get rid of unneeded clips,…and which method you use depends on where the clip is saved.…Clips that were recorded in iMovie can be deleted from iMovie.…But videos that are stored in your camera…roll have to be removed from the photos app.…To get rid of clips that were recorded in iMovie, come up to the…video browser and tap the menu at the top and choose Manage Local Media.…That places two buttons of this clip.…We saw previously that this gray button sends the clip to camera roll.…
And as you may guess, the trash button deletes the clip.…But notice when I tap delete in this case.…I get a message telling me I can't delete…that clip because it's in use by a project.…This clip is in use down here in my timeline, so…I have to remove the clip before I can delete it.…So, I'll hold down on that clip, and drag it out of my timeline.…And now I can tap delete.…And then tap Delete Clip to confirm that I really want to get rid of it.…
