What is Multi-Trim?
The Multi-Trim feature lets you easily extract multiple segments from any video clip by
simply marking the start and end points of the segments you want to keep. The parts you
don’t mark are deleted.
You can access the Multi-Trim feature by doing any of the following:
1. Right-click a video in the Timeline, and choose Multi-trim Video.
2. Select a video in the Timeline, and click Edit menu > Multi-trim Video.
3. Select a video in the Timeline, open the Options Panel, and click Multi-Trim Video.
Trimming video into multiple clips

2. Double-click the clip to open the Options Panel.
3. Click Multi-trim Video in the Options Panel. The Mult-trim Video dialog box appears.
4. Click Play to determine which segments you want to keep.
5. Choose the number of frames to display by dragging the Timeline zoom.
6. Drag the Scrubber until you get to the part of the video that you want to use as the beginning frame of the first segment.
7. Click Set Mark-in button. You can also press F3 to mark the beginning of a trimmed clip.
8. Drag the Scrubber to the point where you want the segment to end. You can also press F4 to mark the beginning of a trimmed clip.
9. Click Set Mark-out button. Repeat steps 6 through 9 until you have marked all the segments you want keep.
