Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Splitting clips, part of iMovie for iOS Essential Training.
…Occasionally, you may have a point in your iMovie…project where you'll want to split a clip into parts.…For example, I've added two clips to my timeline.…The first clip shows me approaching some stairs.…These are placed along the Appalachian trial where it crosses pastures,…so you can get over electrified livestock fences as you're hiking.…The second clip is a closeup of my shoes coming down the steps.…This is what the clips look like so far.…So, what I'd like to have happen here is right when I start coming…down the steps, I'm going to cut away to that close up of my feet and…then cut back to the rest of the first clip as I cross the road.…
In order to do this, I need to split my clip.…To do so I'm going to drag in the time line so…the playhit is at the point where I want to make the split.…It's…probably right about there.…And then I tap the clip to select it.…Now there are two ways to split a clip.…One method is to swipe down the playhead with my finger to split the clip.…Now I found that it sometimes takes me a few tries.…
