If you have a very long and large video but only want to share a part of it with your friends, or you just want to trim some "garbage" from the beginning or the end of the video, follow these steps:
1. Add media for conversion. You can trim both video and audio files in the same way.
2. In the Preview Area, drag the triangle sliders from the beginning and the end of the progress bar so that the part of the video you want to keep is located between them.
3. That's it! Don't forget to choose a preset and set a destination path. When you click the Convert button, only the fragment you've selected will be saved in the output file.
To quickly trim video and audio files without changing their format:
Open the preset list and go to Video and audio formats. There, open the group with the same name as the file's format extension (such as *.mp4 or *.avi), and inside it, select the preset marked Same as input.
