Often, cool videos you’ve just shot or captured contain unwanted elements: ads from YouTube or other hosting sites, pauses or unnecessary content.

Movavi Video Editor has an intuitive English interface that’s so simple you can learn how to work with it in five minutes. You can use this software for splitting and joining video, and for other video editing tasks.

Step 2: Choose File that You Want to Split

Step 2. Add files you want to split and select the Timeline mode.

Click Add Media Files and select the video you want to split. The video will then be automatically added on the Timeline. You can also simply drag and drop the video on the Timeline.

Step 3: Cut Video Clip and Remove Unwanted Parts

Step 2. Add files you want to split and select the Timeline mode.

To split the video into two parts, first click on the video on the Timeline and move the red marker to the point in the video where you want to cut it. You can also locate a particular part of the video by playing it in the preview window. Next, click the Scissors icon. Your video will be split into two parts.

To cut an unwanted segment from the video, place the red marker at the beginning of the unwanted section and click the Scissors icon. Then move the red marker to the ending of the unwanted segment and click the Scissors again. Now this segment has been completely separated from the rest of your video, so you can simply remove it by hitting Delete.

Step 4: Save Edited Videos

Step 4. Save your project

Now you need to save your video in the appropriate format. Click Export and choose the format for your video from the tabs in the upper part of the pop-up window. You can choose any video format, including AVI, MPEG, WMV, MP4, FLV, and MOV or save your file as an HD video. Then indicate the destination folder in the Save to field and click Start.
