How to make a precise cut in video by Sony Vegas

Making the precise cut in the video by Sony Vegas manually is not really such an easy task, we can do this by eliminating the thousandths by double-clicking cursor position at the bottom right. In this field you can change the needle position by the time of the video. 

As soon as you give the two clicks in Cursor Position the field will be editable and in our example we will remove the 24 thousandths, leaving the cut position in 00:55.00 seconds.

So after you select the file and position the needle just squeeze the letter S to make the cut in your video. Notice that the video has been cropped and there are two images in the needle position.
