Split a movie into clips

You can split a movie into as many clips as you like. After you split a movie into clips, you can rearrange them.

Open QuickTime Player for me

A clip in the QuickTime Player window, with the playhead near the center of the clip.
  1. Choose View > Show Clips.

  2. Move the playhead (the red vertical line) to the place where you want to split the clip (or use the Touch Bar), then choose Edit > Split Clip.

    Your movie splits into two clips. Repeat until you have as many clips as you want.

  3. When you’re finished, click Done.
