4. Click "Split at cursor"

This will divide your video in 2 parts: before the cursor and after the cursor.

5. Repeat as needed

If you want to cut a segment of a video, split a second time.

If you want to remove only the end or the beginning of a video, you can skip this step.

5. Delete unneeded parts

You should have a segment that you want to delete now.

Simply select the segment(s) that you want to delete and click "Delete selected".

5. Join back sequences

Since you now have a hole in your sequences, you might want to move the other part of the video at the end of the first part to create a continuous video.

Pro tip: If you have a lot of sequences to move, there is a tool in the menu in Edit > Select All After Cursor

Conclusion

Now that you learned how to cut parts of a video, the power to edit is in your hands!
