How to Remove a Portion of Video after Uploading it on YouTube

If you are a video content creator, or a YouTuber, or anything you like to call yourself, YouTube has introduced a feature that is going to be helpful for a lot of people.

Now you can remove a portion of your videos you have uploaded on the YouTube channel.

Earlier, YouTube has a video editor tool which was pretty helpful in making few changes to the videos already uploaded on the platform. But it discontinued its video editor in 2017.

It became quite troublesome for a lot of YouTubers who wanted to remove a portion which included a copyrighted song, or anything objectionable from the video. There is n number of reasons why a Youtuber would want to make small edits to their already uploaded videos.

YouTube has finally introduced a new video editor in its new Creator Studio which is in beta.

The user interface of the new video editor in creator Studio looks nicer then the previous video editor which was available to the YouTube Publishers.

YouTube has been working on a new interface for the creator Studio dashboard and has been rolling out new features to it continuously, the video editor is one such feature that will now allow you to edit your videos even after you have uploaded them.

Currently, the video editor in the creator studio is limited to just trimming the videos or adding or removing and screens, but looking at how there are too many features being added to the creator Studio beta in the past few months, it seems the video editor soon will be getting more options.

We are yet to see the Colour Grading as well as the Stabilization option, which was a popular feature in the previous version of the video editor.

How to trim your YouTube videos in creator studio

To access the new video editor, you need to switch to the Creator Studio (Beta), the option to which can be found on the bottom left or right-hand side of your screen.

Once you are in the Creator Studio (Beta), click on the ‘Videos’ option in the left panel, and then open any of your videos that you want to edit.

Once you have opened the video, you will see several options appear in the left panel, one of which would be ‘Editor’

Clicking on editor will open the video editor, which pretty much looks like a native video editor with the proper layer based timeline, currently there are three layers, one is for the music, one is for the video footage, in the third one is for the end screen.

You can move the scrubber over the video timeline, and split it by right clicking and then clicking on ‘Split, but she has selected two points you can slice it.

You can then preview your results and if you are happy with it you can save it or you can also click on the undo button to get back to the previous form.

Again, if you are a Youtuber, this is going to be a really useful feature in a lot of cases. I do have got my YouTube channel where I have felt the need of deleting a portion of the video, and thankfully I can do it now.
