Why split clips?

Here are some practical use cases as to why you may need to do this.

1Remove fat

Some clips you have may contain parts that aren't interesting. Using the split tool makes it easy to remove these fatty parts.

2Remove fillers

You might have a video that needs 'umms', 'likes', and dead space removed so it's more engaging.

3Add B-roll

One video style that stands out is inspirational videos with b-roll in between clips. This is now an easy video style to make.

Motionbox helped me create short clips of longer videos that were perfect for sharing as social media posts for my client's campaign. The built-in subtitle feature and progressbar worked great. I even used the subtitle feature to quickly generate copy from the longer videos so that I could also create blog posts! It saved me so much time. If I could use Motionbox to create top-notch content for my client who is a Super Bowl champion, then I'd say it's a superb tool!
