    Have a look at the "Editing a Movie" section of QTMovie's documentation. These methods ...

    – replaceSelectionWithSelectionFromMovie:
    – appendSelectionFromMovie:
    – insertSegmentOfMovie:timeRange:atTime:
    – insertSegmentOfMovie:fromRange:scaledToRange:
    – insertEmptySegmentAt:
    – deleteSegment:
    – scaleSegment:newDuration:
    – addImage:forDuration:withAttributes:

    ... are pretty much all you need. If, for instance, you want to keep a segment somewhere in the middle of the movie and discard the rest, just delete the segments before and after that segment you're interested in.
