Preview and organize video clips

from the official website.

You can access the video preview pane located at the top right corner of the application window to evaluate your project in real-time. Use the position marker in conjunction with the Timeline to control the currently playing section of your project.

For precise control over playback timing, utilize the Skip Forward by 0.5 Seconds or Skip Backward by 0.5 Seconds commands in the Playback menu. Alternatively, you can use the Previous frame and Next frame buttons within the player to move precisely from frame to frame. Previous/Next clip buttons allow you to seamlessly switch between clips.

To fine-tune your video editing project, use the Scale slider in the player to zoom in on the Timeline. This will make it easier to position clips precisely, ensuring that every transition is flawless.

To begin viewing your video, move the position marker to the desired starting point and click Play or press the space bar key. Once you're ready to stop playing, simply click the Pause button or press the space bar again to pause playback.

The controls for the video player include:
(1) a position marker for starting playback at the desired point
(2) current playing time display
(3) previous clip button
(4) previous frame button
(5) play/pause controls for stopping or resuming playback
(6) next frame button
(7) next clip button
(8) aspect ratio settings
(9) volume control
(10) snapshot capture button for saving a still image from your video
(11) additional settings

Organizing footage is an essential task that requires careful attention to detail. In this context, Movavi Video Editor provides a Timeline where media files are arranged by default in chronological order. However, for more precise control over the sequence of clips, rearranging them is crucial. To achieve this, you can drag-and-drop clips to the desired position on the Timeline. You can also use Ctrl+click or a click and drag gesture to select multiple clips simultaneously and rearrange them with ease.
