  • 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.
You can use just one of these methods at a time or combine them — it all depends on what you want to achieve. Learn more about the differences in our guide: How to Trim Video, Audio & Images.
