    I am really tearing my hair out trying to cut my half hour movie into 2
    segments so that I can save it. I know it's too long because when I tried to
    save it as an AVI file it said it was over 4 GBs and it couldnt be saved.
    However when I try to understand how to cut the movie in 2 I keep finding
    different instructions.
    Is there some place where the process of cutting the movie is explained in
    great great detail? For example one suggestion was to "select a portion of
    the story line and then cut it" but I cannot find how to get past square 1.
    How do I select just a portion of the story line in order to cut it?
    2. When I do cut it which part is saved? Should I save it as a high quality
    movie?
    I really really would like to see this whole process explained in really
    great detail (so many explanations jump over things and make too many
    assumptions).
    If I can get over this awful problem I will be eternally grateful! I spent
    a lot of time making this particular movie and it would mean a great deal to
    be able to save it.
    Thanks so much for any assistance.
