    I am trying to transfer home VHS to DVD

    I have been able to do the tranfering by using Elgato

    Got several question how to proceed

    I have been able to eliminate or delete the clips that I don't want, except for those sections of the video where a deleted clip ends and the good clip begins

    No matter what I do I don't seem to be able to remove that portion of a clip
    I have splited a clip and see both parts but it bad one won't go away

    Can anyone help me?

    BTW
    Do I edit the video in the Event stage or at the Project Stage

    I have been editing the video in the Event stage the have been able to delete the unwanted clips except for thos I mention above.

    If I try to edit the video in the Project Stage I am unable to separate clidp

    Select the section of each clip in the Event Library that you want, and then drag it into your Project. You can then "fine tune" it there.

    You can do that in the Event Library by adjusting the yellow box to select only what you want. If you want to split a clip in a Project, move the mouse/playhead to where you want to split, Right/Ctrl click and choose Split Clip.

    Will what do that?

    Once you've split the clip, just select the bit that you don't want, and delete it.
