How to Cut Frames in PowerDirector

It's always a good idea to capture more video than is necessary for movies, because you can always remove unwanted footage and it isn't always possible to get a reshoot. Editing out unwanted frames from a video isn't a difficult task and doesn't require any advanced video editing or computer skills. And with the help Cyberlink PowerDirector's "Split" tool, you can trim the unwanted frames from your video in a matter of seconds.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Launch PowerDirector. Load your video projector or import the video, that you'd like to trim, into PowerDirector. Click on the "Edit" heading at the top of the program.

  2. 2

    Click on the video, from which you'd like to remove frames, in the timeline at the bottom of the program. Drag a video clip from the library window into the timeline if the video you want to edit isn't already in the timeline.

  3. 3

    Use the "+" and "-" zoom tools to zoom in on the video clip on the time line. Drag the timeline slider across the video, up to the first frame you'd like to cut---use the video preview window to help you fine tune your selection.

  4. 4

    Click on the "Split" tool at the bottom of the menu. Drag the timeline slide to the last frame you'd like to cut, and then click on the "Split" tool again.

  5. 5

    Right-click on the series of unwanted frame and then select the "Cut" option from the pop-up menu that appears. Drag the two remaining portions of the video together.
