Hey whats up everyone,
In this screenflow video tip of the week I’ll be going over how to edit your video using the split clip feature right within screenflow
Editing your videos in screenflow is really easy and you can get some amazing results from this $99 software.
I will be putting together some more editing video tips later down the line, so for this first tip, I will show you how can do some basic edits.
What you need to do is have some footage on the timeline and you can bring footage from your camera or iPhone which is what I use to film.
I already have some footage on the timeline, if you don’t know how to add footage to the library or the timeline you can find links to those in the description of this video.
The next thing we need to do is make some minor edits like I said above and we can do that by splitting the clip, i like to call this the 1st edit or cut, all we’re doing here is editing the footage we know we don’t want before going into more advanced editing.
So to split the clip, make sure you highlight your footage, you can tell its highlighted by the yellow box around the footage, you then move the scrubber to where you want to make you cut, like this. Once you know where you want to cut, simply right click on the mouse and go up to where it says split clip and click on that.
you will know notice that the clip is cut into 2 pieces, one to the left and one to the right, it’s the one to the left that we don’t need, so all we need to do to get rid of that is make sure its highlighted and simply click delete, this will then delete the selected clip.
From here you can then move through the footage and make the first edits or cuts like I mentioned above. Has you can see making edits or cuts to your footage using the split clip feature in scre enflow is easy to do.
So to recap, hightlight the footage, move the scrubber to where you want to cut the footage, just a little tip I forgot to mention, anything to the left of the scrubber is where the deleted clip will take place. Then right click on the mouse, come up to where it says split clip, click on that, then that part of the footage will be split into 2, you then delete the footage to the left.
and thats how you edit your video using the split clip feature.
