Cut/Trim videofile.
on Nov 15, 2014 at 6:45:13 am

Hello.

I want to import a video file, which is 25 minutes long, but I only need a 10 seconds part of this video.

Do I have to cut out these 10 seconds in an editing program, such as Final Cut/Premiere Pro, before importing to AE, or can I do this in AE ?

you can cut the 10 sec in AE - why would you use a editing program?

OK, thanks Ted.

Do I do it in the timeline, meaning taking the 25 min. video into the composition and then trim it ?

Or can it be done while creating the composition somehow ?

Probably the easiest way would be to import your video, and double click your video while it's in the project window. Navigate to your in point and use the "set in-point" button below the video, do the same for the out point, then drag it on to the make new comp button.

One of the first things shown in this basic three-video introduction to After Effects is trimming:
