In video editing, one of the most important aspects is being able to Splitting Videos into segments. At first glance that may not seem to be the case – but once you get right down to it you’ll begin to realize that being able to split videos into segments will open up numerous possibilities.
Needless to say, when you’re able to split your videos you’ll be able to take a single video and split it into individual clips. In itself this will already give you the ability to extract the ‘important’ parts of your video and save them individually. However if you go a step further you’ll also be able to remove the ‘unimportant’ or unnecessary bits from your video too.
From those basics you can then start to dig deeper and begin to ‘cut’ your video. Essentially ‘cutting’ a video refers to removing unnecessary footage, extracting good footage, and then re-engineering the video accordingly. It is the same process that is used to cut movie footage and eventually come up with the ‘final cut’.
