Frequently asked questions
Can I trim a video with Clipchamp for free?
Yes. Users can trim and download videos in up to 1080p quality for free.
What’s the difference between trimming, cutting, and cropping?
Trimming reduces the length by snipping parts at the beginning or end of the video. Cutting is removing sections from between a video to discard or to use somewhere else in the video. Cropping removes unwanted outer areas to make the video fit a new aspect ratio.
Does trimming a video reduce its quality?
Trimming a video will not reduce its quality. Ensure your video’s original format is compatible with Clipchamp to avoid exporting in a lower resolution. Our video editor will accept MP4, MOV, WEBM, AVI, DIVX, FLV, 3GP, WMV, VOB, DCM, and MKV video files. Find more information about supported formats here.
