Here's how to remove gaps from your video in Clipchamp.

Step 1. Create a gap in the timeline

Gaps are created in the timeline when trimming clips or other items. The gap will be noticeable because you’ll see a black empty space.

Step 2. Remove your gap

Hover your cursor over the gap created, and a trash can icon will appear. This icon indicates the gap removal feature. Select the icon to remove your gap. You’ll notice nearby clips will rearrange to close the gap.

How to remove stacked gaps

Sometimes, you’ll have multiple gaps stacked on top of each other in the timeline — a video and an audio track for example. If this happens, you won’t need to remove these gaps individually. Instead, hover your cursor at the top of the timeline to see the trash can icon appear. Select the icon to remove the stacked gaps.

How to remove extra small gaps

Some gaps will be too small to display the gap removal icon. If you have an extra small gap like this, hover your cursor over the gap, right-click and select Delete gap from the options that appear.
