editing a video

How do i edit a video in roxio easy media creator 7.5. i shot a 40 minute video with my digital camera and want to get down to around 10 minutes. i want to do this by deleting parts of the video in between the start the and end of the video. but with this software all i can do is adjust where the video starts and stops. it won't let me edit parts of the movie in between.

I'm not very famniliar with Roxio, but I'm surprised you can't edit more with it. I use Nero and that's a pretty basic function. Anyway, if there is no option to cut sections out I think your only other option would be multiple operations of cuting it into segments and then putting the segments into one movie. For instance if you have let's say 5 minutes you want at the beginning and then a 7 minute part you want to edit out, first make a copy of the orignal file. Next, adjust the "end" at the 5 minute mark and save the segment via "save as" into a new file name. Now reopen the original and move the "start" to the 12 minute mark and begin your next segment. Repeat as above. When all done create the finished product by importing all the sections. Should work.
