Split video clips and put back together with Motionbox
Splitting clips is now an easy & enjoyable task.
We host your videos for you. Simply upload your video using our uploader. We accept .mp4, .ogg, .webm, .mov, .quicktime, and more.
Find the uploaded clip in the sidebar and click it to add to the timeline. You will see handles on the ends.
On an active clip you can move the time cursor to the section you want to split. Then press 's' on the keyboard to make two clips out of one.
A YouTube video I made explaining exactly how you can split up a video into multiple parts.
Here are some practical use cases as to why you may need to do this.
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.
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!
Motionbox is the best online video editing tool jam packed with tons of features to help you rule the internet.
