Need up to 30 seconds to load.
- Here's how to cut
and edit your videos using the YouTube Studio Editor.
- [Sean] You gotta just press record.
First thing you wanna do is go into the YouTube Studio,
and then you're gonna go over to Content.
And from here you wanna select the video
that you are going to trim or cut something out of.
Now we use this tool a lot,
but we actually use it on our live stream.
So I'm gonna go over to this live tab,
and from here you can actually scroll down,
find the video you want to trim,
and then you can hover over it like this
and you're gonna see some different options.
We are gonna go into Details.
Once we're inside of this view,
all you need to do is go over here to the left.
You are going to see the Editor tab.
And we're gonna select Editor,
and now we have the Video Editor pulled up.
Now there's a few options here.
First of all, we have our Trim & Cut tool.
You also can blur out certain things
if you forgot to blur something out
like a street address or your house number,
you can do that later, which is really cool.
And then you can also add in different audio tracks
if you want to do that,
as well as add in your end screens
and info cards here as well.
And then lastly, we do have our ad breaks.
Like I said, we use the Trim tool the most on live streams
because typically when you're starting a live stream,
you don't know exactly when to start
because you don't wanna start too soon or too late.
However, with this live stream,
the video starts right away
with Sean talking into the camera,
but there's kind of an awkward one to two seconds
at the beginning that I want to trim out.
To trim the beginning of this video,
we're gonna hover over this plus button.
From here, we can trim the beginning or we can trim the end.
But because this is such a long live stream,
it's gonna be a lot easier if you use the Magnify tool
and actually zoom in to the very beginning of this video.
Now that I'm zoomed in,
this makes it way easier to trim it
to exactly where I want it,
which is right before these audio waveforms,
which is when he starts talking.
To make sure that I like it,
I'm just gonna go ahead and hit the Preview button.
- So let's talk about three websites
that will help you get more views.
- Now there's no awkward pause
and we get right into the video.
Now let's say later in the livestream,
there's a certain moment
that we actually want to take completely out of the video.
We can do that using the New Cut tool.
All you need to do is take this playhead,
go over the part that you want it to start,
and then you're gonna hit New Cut.
So I'm gonna zoom in now
and I'm gonna find the exact moment that I want to cut out.
And I'm gonna hit the play button,
and then I'm going to skip forward 10 seconds
or back 10 seconds to find this moment.
So this is where I want to cut out this specific moment.
I am now going to hit New Cut,
and then what I need to do is just drag the end
of this red clip to the end
of the part that I want to cut out.
Then I can use the Zoom In tool
to really refine it exactly where I want it.
And anything in this red section
is going to be deleted from the actual video.
Once you're happy with that section you want to cut out,
all you need to do is hit this check mark
and that is going to then cut it out from the video.
Then all you need to do is go over to the Save section,
and this is just gonna give you some information
because it tells you
that it might take a few hours for your changes to apply.
So during that time,
viewers are still gonna be able to see
the current version of the video
before you made any cuts or blurred out sections.
So you're not gonna be able to make other changes
to the video during this time while it is updating.
And also the original version
of your video is going to be stored
so that you can undo your edit
if you want to go back and change your mind.
Now if you want more details
