How to split media in Camtasia 2021

Normally I blog about Microsoft 365, but today I want to give you a glimpse into one of my behind-the-scenes tools. As a video creator (see my online course and YouTube channel), I use Camtasia 2021 for all of my video editing and creation needs.

Often, I need to split video segments to remove pauses, create space, correct mistakes, etc. Below are the steps to accomplish that:

  1. Select the media you’d like to split.
  2. Move the playhead to the exact moment in the timeline you’d like the selected media split into two segments.
  3. Select the split icon (a bisected rectangle).

After that, you may wish to move the two segments independently, delete or ripple delete one of them, edit segments independently, make additional cuts/slices, etc.

Comment if you’d like to see more tutorials on a specific action or process in Camtasia – I’m happy to help my fellow video creators get started.
