Alight Motion makes importing and editing video clips for your projects easy. Here’s how to manage video content:

Adding Video Clips

To add a video:

  • Tap the Add Layer button

  • Select the video clips you want to import
  • The clips will be added as layers on the timeline

Supported formats include MP4, MOV, and M4V.

Trimming Video Clips

Trim longer videos to shorten the clip:

  • Select the video layer
  • Use the handles on either end to trim
  • Playback the trimmed video to check
  • Trimmed portions will be removed from the layer

This allows focusing on only the relevant parts.

Splitting Video Clips

Split a single clip into multiple layers:

  • Select the clip layer
  • Move playhead to the split position
  • Tap Split in the toolbar above the timeline
  • The original layer will be split into two at that point

Use this to divide a long clip into smaller pieces.

Deleting Video Clips

  • Select the unwanted video layer
  • Tap the trash icon in the toolbar
  • Confirm the deletion
  • The clip will be removed from the project

Now you have the tools to manage and edit video clips directly within Alight Motion efficiently!
