Split Tool Beginner Question

Post by rgrahamuk » Sun Jun 17, 2018 10:29 am

I use the Split tool to chop off parts of events that I don't need, but if I then drag the bottom right corner of the event, then I see that everything I thought I'd deleted is actually still there.
I can see the use of that functionality, but how can I actually delete parts of the event?

Many thanks in advance. I'm sure i'm missing something obvious!

That tool is non-destructive so you still have the original file.

If you really want/need to delete stuff you will have to create a new file from the edited one. You could use the "Render In Place" or "Mixdown" functions for that.
