I am new to editing and I can't figure out how to remove an entire clip that is about 5 minutes long. If I try trimming by selecting
the start and finish of what I want removed, it removes everything in front of the clip and everything after the clip that was
selected. I must be missing something that is so simple it is difficult. I think I have looked at all the tips in the help menu to
no avail.

Try this: Highlight the clip by clicking on it. Right mouse click and click remove from the popup window.

Delete only the selected clip, DEL key and choose an option from the menu shown.
There are 2 ways to cut start and end of a video.
1 - Select the video and click the Scissors, open the Editor.
2 - In the timeline Split the video at the beginning, select the leftover and Del, Split at the end, select the leftover right and Del.
Note: If by chance the videos are grouped, you will have to ungroup first to be able to delete each one separately. Group / Ungroup Objects
In the latter case, remove this video and re-add the timeline. AMD-FX 8350 / 8GB DDR3

Sorry, but I asked the wrong question. I need to remove a few minutes WITHIN a clip. My CLIP is the 1 hour DV tape that I imported into PD 14. I used the wrong description of a clip.

I used the wrong term for CLIP. My clip is the entire 1 hour DV tape. I need to remove a few minutes of video I don't want

in the finished video, which I can't figure out how to remove. It can't be split because it is near the middle. It does help to ask the

right question. I hope you have an answer, I have been looking myself, but I have not found it.

You can and should use Split, do a split at the beginning of the part you are going to delete, another Split at the end of the part you are going to delete, select the part that will exclude between the 2 Split, and DEL, simple as that. AMD-FX 8350 / 8GB DDR3

The light finally came on since it was so simple. Thanks for the help, all is well for now.
