Clipping video clips

Hi guys can you please tell me if there is a way that I can split my videos in half in after effects cs4?
example: adding a clip then cut in half,then adding another one and doin the same thing....like in windows movie maker?
I'd really appreciate it!
If you want to split the clip in the timeline -- for example, you want to turn a 6-second clip into two 3-second clips at the 3-second mark -- go to 3 seconds in the timeline, highlight the clip, and use the Split Clip command: Command-Shift-d (Mac). I guess it's Ctl-Shift-d for windows.

Few ways. You can adjust the time by going to where you want the clip to end and on a PC press "Alt + ]". Or to perform an actual split "cntl+ shift + D" will split a layer, putting everything after the CTI on a new layer.
