    I'm a pretty smart guy and it took me 30 minutes to figure out how to add a transition and I don't have another 30 minutes to figure out how to crop, time on-screen graphics, and everything else.

    Anyone have a link to directions for this app?

    TIA

    Thanks. It doesn't tell me the two most important things:

    1. How do I trim a video clip (ex: I have 30 seconds of one shot and I want to cut off the beginning and end and leave just the 10 seconds in the middle in the project).

    2. How do I time the on-screen graphic (ex: I type 'Day At The Beach' as my opening title on a 30 second video clip but only want that title text on the screen for 10 of those 30 seconds, not the whole thing).

    Thanks again.

    I had the same problem BJ. Don't worry. You've just missed it...

    Scroll to the end or beginning of your clip and then select it. You'll notice a yellow slider appears. You can move that slider to crop the clip.

    I imagine it works the same way for the graphic, but i've not tested that..

    good luck

    How do you trim from the middle of a clip? do you have to add it twice?

    yes, and trim accordingly


    I did a video about creating and adding custom transitions:
