Hi All,
What is the best way to cut up footage? I have so far used Any Video Converter's trimming tool while I am also converting the footage. I'm not sure if that will just trim, without converting, and in any case sometimes it seems to make clips with the right start time, but which last all the way to the end of the original clip (not what I want). So, all I want to be able to do it take just a little part of some footage that I've already downloaded, and just trim / cut that away, so that I only import that little clip into my project... This must be something other people are doing constantly.

I've used the search on here cut all I found was a reply from Derek using the phrase "cookie cutter". I've also googled it, but I don't really trust those website that come up.

Thanks

Paul

You can't "trim" videos without re-rendering.
This is what you use Vegas for!

Use the Trimmer window in Vegas to do exactly what you are asking.
Right-click a video in the Project Media or Explorer tabbed windows and select Open in Trimmer.

Press More Buttons and Edit Visible Button Set - turn ON all controls.
You can drag any section of the video to create a selection.
That can be dragged directly to the Timeline.
OR
You can create an actual Sub-Clip which will also appear in the Project Media window.
