Sometimes it happens that an action in a given movie/film is separated by other actions that may not be related to the one you want to show. If this is the case, you can cut the non-related actions and splice the segments of the action of interest. This comes handy when you are limited by class time and would like to show a part of a movie that is otherwise too long.
In just several steps, you will be able to splice segments using iMovie HD
Step 1) Import in iMovie HD the entire movie/film/clip you want to splice. This could be done by dragging and dropping the video file in iMovie HD.
Step 2) Time to create the segment that needs to be cut. Find the beginning of it on the time line. Once you have the beginning point, click the right button on the mouse and select "Split Video Clip at Playhead"
Step 3) Find the end of that segment on the time line. Now similarly to the procedure in step 2, click the right button on the mouse and select "Split Video Clip at Playhead"
Step 4) Now you have a segment that you can remove or cut. To do any of these actions, make a right click with the mouse over the segment.
You can keep on cutting segments that are not crucial to the part you want to show. The video will automatically join ends.
Once you are done, you can export the project. There are different options that offer different quality settings. We would encourage you to use the expert settings, because you can adjust the quality to what you need.
