Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Trimming clips, part of iMovie for iOS Essential Training.
…Previously, we saw how you can trim a clip before adding…it to your project simply by selecting it, moving its trim handles,…and then tapping the arrow to add it to your project.…Once it's been added to your project though, you…may then decide that it's too long or too short.…But that doesn't mean you have to remove the…clip and add it from your video browser again.…Just tap the clip once to select it and notice the two handles…appear exactly like the handles we see on the clips in the video browser.…And they work exactly the same way.…So, maybe I think this clip goes on for too long for my project.…I'll grab the left handle and drag it to the right to shorten the clip.…
As you're dragging, keep your eye on the viewer…to see exactly which frame you're moving the handle to.…If…you're having trouble placing the handle where you…want to trim, you can expand the size…of the thumbnails representing your video by pinching…out with two fingers horizontally on the timeline.…That'll make it easier to move the handles where you want them.…
