Split, cut, and trim a video:
plain and simple
Trim video online to get video clips to the perfect length.
Supporting video file types including MP4, MOV, AVI, MKV, and more.
Trim full-length videos into shorter content
Shorten your videos into clips with a simple video cutter that gets straight to the point. Cut the video length of your project down to your desired length. Supporting videos up to 2 hours, this video cutter lets you make precise cuts by the frame—all whilst preserving its video quality.
Playback with faster loading times
Load your video up once. Never run into playback issues again. After you’ve uploaded your video to a project, your video gets processed to handle simple, but creative edits you make. Spend less time waiting for your video to load and more time editing.
Where there are silences, there are cuts
Use our Smart Cut feature to automatically remove silences and filler words like “uhh” and “umm.” Click once, and all the unwanted sections of your video (awkward pauses, stutters, etc) will get cut out of your video automatically. Don't worry! You can adjust the sensitivity of the auto cut. Start saving hours of editing time and completing your rough cut faster than ever for talking head videos, screen recordings, tutorials, and more.
Edit your video by editing its transcript
Find highlights of your video through a text transcript, and trim out parts by deleting text from the video transcript itself. Save valuable time creating more content when you edit 10x faster with Kapwing’s text-based video editor.
