2 Drag video files to the Timeline for editing

Drag your wanted video files from this app's album to its Timeline. And when you do it, you'd better drag them from the album to the timeline one by one. That's done to avoid putting one file on another which can have the second file split.

3 Edit video files

Select one video clip on the Timeline and then click the Edit button to open the editing panel, where you can crop, trim, rotate video, change video effect and speed in video bar, and edit audio track in Audio bar.

To trim a video clip to the specified length, just click it and mouser over its left or right edge.
