Hi,

I've some very large files. I'm only using small clips from them in PE2019. Is there a way to only keep the segment used and discard the footage that's not used to reduce the filesize?

If not, is there some way to trim / edit a video in PE2019 prior to importing it to the library?

Cheers

Brilliant!

I copied a raw footage clip. Trimmed it with the drag edges method, then went to File / Export and Share.

I then used Devices / Custom / Advanced Settings and the option "Match Source" which changed all settings to match the raw footage. It created a Custom present. I entered a file name, destination and save. Done.

Now the .mp4 is a much smaller version of the original and same quality.

Thanks
