Trimming a video shouldn't be hard. Here are three simple steps to follow.
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 drag the handles to trim the beginning or end. It's easy to chop it down to your desired time.
A YouTube video I made explaining exactly how you can trim a video clip.
Here are some reasons why you might need to trim a video.
A perfect reason to trim would be taking a long YouTube video that you want to promote on other social media like Instagram or Twitter.
You might want to highlight an interesting or exciting moment from a clip. This is a great way to get engagment.
You might have recorded a video of yourself and messed up a few parts. Maybe the beginning was of you getting prepared.
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!
