Part 3. Trim Vimeo Videos More Quickly on Mac/Win [Recommended]

As you've seen, learning how to trim video on Vimeo can be challenging for beginners. Also, Vimeo doesn't support cutting by video frames, which give a more precise output. For these reasons, use Wondershare UniConverter to split and trim videos on Mac or Windows. With this program, you'll enjoy fast and automated trimming sessions, thanks to the AI-powered smart trimmer. Here's the thing; the program will auto-select silent video sections based on the volume level, buffer rate, or audio playback duration and proceed to erase them. As expected, it also comes with a manual trimmer that lets you trim video scenes more practically. Let's dig in!
