Video Editing Tips

•
Always clip videos before compressing them
– Often, video clips do not need to be compressed once they have been clipped because
they are less than 300MB
To see how large a video file is, right click on the file in its saved location and select Properties
– Files should be no larger than 300MB or 3000KB

Open the program.
Click where it says Add videos and photos or simply click where it says Click here to browse for
videos and photos; then, locate the video file to begin editing it
Once you have added a video to Movie Maker, the Edit tab will appear on the ribbon.
Click the Edit tab and then select the Trim Tool
Students will need to know at what point in their videos they want their clips to start and where
they would like them to end in seconds
For example, if a student wanted his/her clip to begin at 10 minutes and 20 seconds, and end at
20 minutes and 18 seconds, he/she really wants her clip to begin at 620 seconds and end at
1218 seconds
Enter the Start Point and in End Point in the number of seconds; then, click Save Trim
After the video has been clipped, click the File drop down menu
Click Save Movie
Select For email
Name the file and choose where the video should be saved
Typically, most clips less than ten minutes long will not need to be compressed after clipping if
the clip is saved this way
