The Ultimate Beginner’s Trimming Guide
Probably the most basic action you will need to get under control in any video editing software after adding footage to the timeline is cutting and trimming your clips.
This can be a very time consuming action but the bottom line is that there is no way around it.
The only relief you can get at this stage is by really getting to know the interface of your software and all the tools available.
In other words you can lessen the pain but never eliminate it!
In this video Gripps goes through the tools you have at your disposal within VideoStudio.

This way he can directly address the questions of people in realtime and given his familiarity with the program he is usually spot on. Always worth watching.

Rather than trying to wrap it all up into one big lesson I think he is really on a winner by just walking you through some simple tasks that allow you to ultimately master that page.
