A good practice for creating engaging content is to draw your viewer in from the moment they press play on your video. Trimming any unnecessary footage from the start or end of your video can help keep your viewers enticed. If you’re filming yourself, the trim tool can be used to edit out the moment you hit record on your camera, or the moment you get up to turn off recording at the end. Whatever it is you need to trim, Adobe Spark Video’s editor makes it easy to do.
With Adobe Spark Video, trimming your video is as easy as can be, no editing skills necessary. Upload video clips and trim them as you string them together into a video. You can even use the trimming tool to reinsert footage back into your timeline if you change your mind. Trimming edits are simple to make so you can arrive at the perfect finished product sooner rather than later.
From the “My Videos” page, hit the red “+” button to get started. The first frame will have another “+” sign, so press that to insert your video content into the timeline.
Once you’ve selected the video you’d like to insert into your timeline, a trimming screen will pop up right away. Trim from either the beginning or end of you video, and press done to insert the clip.
If you need to trim a clip again, either to lengthen or shorten it, simply go to that slide and tap on the scissor icon in the top right hand corner to make your trimming edits!
Sometimes it takes countless takes to get the perfect shot. With the easy-to-use trimming tool on Adobe Spark Video, you can edit down your clips to just the right length to showcase your star footage. Trim at any point in the editing process, with the freedom to go back and revise your trimming choices. When you feel confident with the final product, download and share your video across any channel or platform you’d like!
