I'm working on a short video where the last clip ends at about 22 seconds but when I export/render it, it ends up being more than 7 minutes long b'c theres 6.5 minutes of black. How do I get rid of this 6.5 minutes of black after my last clip?

On your timeline you have probably a clip or Black Video at the end of the timeline, at around +7 minutes. One frame is enough to trigger the timeline to render past your 22 seconds to +7minutes.

 

Place the time indicator at 22 seconds. Zoom in fully. (important) Press Down Arrow once, or until you find the "ghost clip/s" at the end of the timeline. Remove them.

Yep, I knew it had to be something simple. I had an extremely short clip all the way down by the 7-minute mark. Once I deleted that, all was good. Thanks for the quick tip.

I use a different version of your editor program, but don't you have a WAB ( Work Area Bar ) ? I think the shortcut is the back slash key to see your entire WAB... so you can do what averdahl said... either delete black vdeo ( snap the WAB to the end of your desire for final frame ) and delete rest  ?

or if you've got an extended keyboard (and any serious editor should have an extended keyboard) just hitting the "end" key will take you to the end of the timeline and you can see if there's something beyond what you want.
