Basic Editing Features

Use the playhead to navigate and scrub through your video clips. Clicking on specific clips will select them (light gray).

For more accurate control of the playhead, you can use the back and forward buttons to skip one frame back or forward. Clicking the elapsed time will also allow you to use your mousewheel to scrub frames while holding the CTRL and SHIFT buttons let you scrub seconds and minutes respectively.

Reorder the video clips by dragging and dropping them along the timeline.
Splitting Clips
Click the Split icon or press CTRL+T to split the video clip where the playhead currently is. Alternatively, if the playhead is currently on the selected clip - right-click on it then select Split Clip from the pop-up menu.
Trimming Clips
Hover your mouse cursor near the beginning or end of a video clip until the cursor turns into the trim icon, then hold and drag to the left or right to trim off those parts of the clip.
Deleting Clips
Click the Trash icon or press DEL to delete the selected video clip. You can also right-click on the clip you want to delete then select Delete from the pop-up menu shown.
