- Trimming a video means increasing or decreasing the length of a clip, usually by eliminating some frames at the beginning or end.
- Cutting a clip means splitting it in two (or more).
- Cropping means changing the size and/or dimensions of the video.
Everything you need to! Trim the beginning or the end of a video, cut a clip into multiple sections (and remove the unwanted parts), merge them together, rearrange their order...it's all up to you. You can even mix in music, add text, and create custom transitions to any videos online.
Our free version is limited in terms of video export time and does include a WeVideo watermark on exported files. You can always upgrade to a paid plan to remove these limitations.
