How To: Edit with QuickTime


In the Quicktime Player:

1. Open up Source video
2. File/NEW PLAYER
3. Go back to Source and move play head to start of video you want,
then click and drag the the triangle to the start and then move the
other triangle to the end point
4. Edit/copy
5. Go to the new player window, Edit/Paste
6. GO TO #3 UNTIL DONE

On apple Command B moves in out points to current playhead position. This makes it very fast and easy to do a series of butt edits. (is that what they’re called, forgotten my videotape editing lessons of 1986…)

Also you can drag the in and out points to mark a selection and then paste over the selection.

You can also add scaled (via edit menu) which stretches or shrinks what you paste to what you’ve selected.

You can also select by holding down shift while dragging playhead or while playing video.

There isn’t a timeline but that’s because QT is not about linear film media.
