Steps

  1. 1
    To begin, we should already have a video imported into "Photoshop"
    .
    There are VisiHow videos on how to do that. We have the preview here at the top, and underneath the timeline, where we can see the duration of the clip, and there is a scroller as well.

    If we want to trim the beginning of the clip, we should play the clip, so the red scroller will start moving, then we pause and the red scroller will stop at the trimming end point
    .
    Hover the cursor towards the front of the timeline, to get this little rectangular shape with arrows.

Questions and Answers

I cannot export the trimmed file in a usable format?

I trim the video as per your instructions and go to File > Render, but when I go to play the rendered file it will not play

You might have missing video codecs. Please install K-Lite Codec Pack by selecting all of the default settings during the installation, which will also add Media Player Classic as well. Associate files with Media Player Classic when asked, and the video should be played back.
