where you can write a Facebook update or a Tweet, add a description of your video, and so on.

You’ll find the “Trim” button at the top of the screen.

Selecting “Trim” allows you to remove some of the footage from your video file to shorten it. First, find the spot in the video where you want it to start by using the Directional Pad on your controller to scroll through a macro view of the video’s timeline. The timeline shows screencaps that represent small snippets of the video: You can increase or decrease the size of these snippets, changing how much of the video you skip over each time you hit the D-Pad.

To change the length of the timeline, select the dropdown menu that reads “10 Second Intervals.” As you might have guessed, the default timeline will cause every press of the D-Pad to skip 10 seconds of video, but you can increase that to 60 seconds, or bring it down to one second to be more precise.

When you find the spot where you want your new, shortened video to start, hit L2 to set the start point. From there, scroll forward along the timeline to find your end point, and hit R2. An orange box will highlight the portion of the timeline that will become your new video.

The other sections will be deleted when you finalize the edit. For more precise edits, you can watch the video to find the right spot to start or stop by pressing the “Preview” button below the video timeline. As the video plays, you’ll see a timer running on the right side of the screen and a cursor moving over the timeline, both of which can help you pinpoint when to start and stop your clip.

Complete the trim, and your video will be saved to the Capture Gallery with the rest of your videos.

Once you’ve got your social networks set, it’s just a matter of picking y
