USING SPLIT/TRIM IN VEGAS

The Split/Trim technique works in all versions of VEGAS Pro,
so follow these steps no matter which version you’re using.

STEP 1: Choose Your Media

STEP 1: Choose Your Media

✓ Drag a media clip from the Project Media window, the Explorer window, or a Windows folder and drop it on the timeline. It can be any kind of media, video, sound, photo, or anything else.

STEP 2: Select Your Edit Point

STEP 2: Select Your Edit Point

Identify the frame where you want the split/trim to begin.

✓ Hold CTRL+ALT+Shift as you click the event at that frame. The event splits at that frame.

STEP 3: Edit

STEP 3: Edit

✓ Hold those keys and the mouse button while dragging the mouse in the direction you want to trim the clip. When you’ve trimmed the clip to the frame where you want it, release the mouse button and keys. You have now removed the section you didn’t want from the event.

STEP 4: Drag to Delete a Section of an Event

STEP 4: Drag to Delete a Section of an Event

You can also use Split/Trim to delete an unwanted section of an event entirely.

✓ Choose a different frame on the event, then hold CTRL+ALT+Shift as you click the event at that frame, just like before. This time, trim the clip all the way to its end point. Release the mouse button and keys. The section of the event is now deleted.
