    Premiere elements 11: clip the ends of an .mp4

    hill0093

      In premiere elements 11, how do I clip the ends of an .mp4 and then save the result as a new .mp4 or other video?

          You really do not have to clip anything if you do not want to.

           

          1. In the Expert workspace, place the gray tabs of the Work Area Bar to span the area of the Timeline that you want to export.

           

          2. When you go to Publish+Share/Computer/ and your choice, your choice has to have an option "Share Work Area Bar Only" for

          you to place a check mark next to.

           

          You need to meet the above 2 requirements --- then, with export settings set appropriately, you hit the Save button. You will find

          your file at the hard drive location that you designated in the Save In of the export dialog.

           

          With regard to the gray tabs of the Work Area Bar - when you are in the Edit area....

          Screenshot is from version 13, but same Work Area Bar/Gray Tabs concept in 11.

          You can move the gray tabs in place with the mouse cursor or with shortcuts --

          with shortcuts....

          Move the Timeline Indicator to the beginning of the segment to be exported, then, as you hold down the

          Alt key of the computer main keyboard, hit the left bracket key [

          of the computer main keyboard, hit the right bracket key ]

           

          Any questions or need clarification on any of the above, please ask.

           

          Thank you.
