quicktime_player_icon.gifQuickTime X is the newest version of QuickTime Player developed for Snow Leopard.  Now you can trim your media right within the QuickTime Player.  It displays frame-based thumbnails that help you make the perfect edit.

It's great if you just need to remove a portion of the beginning or end of a movie, to make it shorter or remove unwanted content.  All you need to do, is once your movie is opened in QuickTime Player, choose Edit > Trim, (or Cmd + T) and the Trimming Bar appears.

quicktime_player_trim.gifUse the Trimming Bar to select the portion of the movie you want to keep.  Drag the playhead, represented by a red vertical line, to find the section of the movie that you want to get rid of.  Drag the start and end of the trimming bar, using the yellow handles to select the portion of the movie that you want to keep.  Click the Trim button.  The movie is now shortened to the portion you selected.

quicktime_player_trimmed.gifThe newest version of QuickTime X also offers a clean uncluttered interface with controls that fade out when you're not using them.  You can also use it to publish your media to MobileMe or YouTube without worrying about formats or resolutions.
