Want to cut that unwanted fumbling, sneezing, or awkward silence from your video? The video is perfect, but do you want to trim a little bit of the start and end parts?
If you have nightmares from using sliders to find the perfect second to cut- It's time to wake up from your bad dream!
BIGVU's WordTrim enables you to trim your videos based on the words in the transcript of the video. Read on!
Choose a Video
First access your project from the main project page. Then, choose the relevant take that you would like to trim.
In the Video Menu, to use Trim you have 2 choices: "Cue Start/End" or "Trim Video"
The entire caption is already selected, you can directly hit Create Copy to save your trimmed video
Tap on the first word you want your video take to start with and select Start (1) and then choose the word you want your video take to end with and select End (2)
When you choose the word to start/end WordTrim will start a preview from/until that word so you can make sure it starts/ends at exactly the right time.
You can also change the words chosen by clicking on a new word to start or end with.
6. Once you choose the first and last words for your new copy, two options will appear:
If the words weren't accurate enough, and you want to fine-tune the start/endpoint
Minor changes - "Start & End" ➡️ If the goal is to simply adjust slightly the start and endpoints. You will have two lines on the screen, representing the start and end cut points and 6 seconds before and after them.
Moving the bar on the top line will let you fine-tune the new start of your video, and the lower line at the end.
Major changes - "Full Video" ➡️ If you want to completely change the start and end, and not just fine-tune it, you can use 'Full Video' mode, which behaves like a classic trimmer, using a video timeline.
This will generate the new video take with the selected words, without harming the original take.
Once trimmed and satisfied, you can now continue styling your video on the app
