Editing Movies

Selecting (Edit) in the movie control panel enables you to cut unwanted portions at the start or end of a movie clip.

Protected movies and movies less than 1 second in duration cannot be edited.

  1. From the movie playback menu select and press <FUNC./SET> to enter movie edit mode.

  2. Use the or button to select (Cut Beginning) or (Cut End) and the or button to set the portion to which the cut is applied. When (Cut Beginning) is selected, the left hand cursor moves and when (Cut End) is selected, the right hand cursor moves.

  3. Use the or button to select (Play) and press the <FUNC./SET> button.
  4. A preview of the temporarily edited movie clip plays. To stop it, press the <FUNC./SET> button.

  5. Use the or button to select (Save) to keep the edits. If you use the or button to select (Close Movie Editing/Return to Movie Control Panel), the edits are not saved and the editing mode is canceled.

  6. Use the or button to select [New File] or [Overwrite] then press <FUNC./SET>.
    • [ New File] saves the edited movie under a new file name. The pre-edit data is left unchanged.
    • [Overwrite] saves the edited movie with its original file name. The pre-edit data is lost.
    • When the SD card lacks sufficient space to create a new file, only [Overwrite] can be selected.
  • The minimum duration of an edited movie is 1 second.
  • It may take approximately 3 minutes to save an edited movie. If the battery pack runs out of charge partway through, edited movie clips cannot be saved. When editing movies, use a fully charged battery pack or the separately sold AC Adapter Kit.
