A zoom slider will appear below the video, allowing you to zoom in or out. You can change the position of the background by simply dragging it within the canvas area.

When you’re happy with your changes, select Done.


4. Trim

The trim tool lets you set the duration of your video or choose which part of the video to capture. To set the duration, drag the start anchor point on the left to the desired starting point and drop it.

Note that the auto-trim switch is enabled by default. This means that if you do not set an end point for the video, all the content will be included.

If you want to trim a portion of the video, you can drag the end anchor point on the right to the desired end point and change the section you want to trim by dragging the entire duration area.
