Some clips you have may contain parts that aren't interesting. Using the split tool makes it easy to remove these fatty parts.
You might have a video that needs 'umms', 'likes', and dead space removed so it's more engaging.
One video style that stands out is inspirational videos with b-roll in between clips. This is now an easy video style to make.
