How to Edit Movies on Your Canon EOS 6D

When you review movies on your Canon, they may need to be trimmed. You can cut footage from the beginning or end of a movie clip in the camera by following these steps:

  1. Press the Playback button repeatedly until you navigate to the movie you want to edit.

    You can press the Index/Magnify/Reduce button to view four or nine thumbnails. Movies have a filmstrip icon around the border of the thumbnail.

  2. Select the movie you want to edit and then press the Set button.

    The playback controls display.

  3. Use the Multi-controller or the Quick Control dial to highlight the Edit icon that looks like a pair of scissors and then press Set.

    The editing controls display. Cut Beginning is the first tool, which enables you to trim footage from the beginning of the movie clip.

  5. Press the right side of the Multi-controller to fast-forward to the spot where you want the clip to begin and then press Set.

    The icon that indicates where the movie begins displays above the clip.

  6. Use the Multi-controller or the Quick Control dial to highlight the Cut End tool and then press Set.

    The tool for trimming from the end of the movie is highlighted.

  7. Press the left side of the Multi-controller left to rewind the movie to where you want the clip to end and then press Set.

    The revised starting and ending points for the movie display above the clip.

  8. Use the Multi-controller or the Quick Control dial to highlight Save and then press Set.

    The Save button is the icon to the right of the Play button. After pressing the icon, a dialog box appears asking you whether you want to create a new file or overwrite the existing file. If you still have footage on the original file you want to keep, make sure you create a new file.
