Setting In and Out points in Windows Live Moviemaker


Setting in and out points is the first task that will be performed on every clip used in a movie. You need to choose where you want the clip to start (in point) and where it needs to end (out point)

  1. Select a clip and position the playhead where you want the clip to begin.
  2. Click on the “Edit” tab across the top
  3. Click on the “Set start point”.  The clip will now play from where the playhead was positioned.
  4. Position the playhead where you would like the clip to end.
  5. Click on the “Set end point”.  The clip will stop at this point.
    (TIP: Keyboard short cut for setting in point is “i” and out point is “o”)
