Cutting recordings

  • Updated


When editing recordings, you can trim out awkward silence at the start or the end of the presentation or divide a long recording into several parts. The edited recordings are called cuts and can be published to Replay for attendees to view. 

Note: Cuts are created based on the original recording. It will not change the original recording, which will be retained so that you can create multiple cuts from the same original.

To create cuts:

  1. Go to Event Dashboard > Recordings (or to Event Dashboard > More > Recordings if your event hasn't ended yet).
  2. Under Original Recordings, click the Menu icon ••• on a recording you'd like to edit.
  3. Select Create Cuts.
    Note: You will also find this option in the Recording settings.

  4. In the video editor, click + Add Cut to create a new cut.
    ✔ A timeline appears below the video

  6. If you want to start again, click the Cross icon ✘ and the cut will be deleted.
  7. Once you are happy with the Cut, select the Check Mark icon and the cut will be confirmed.
    Note: Your cut is not saved at this point. You will need to click Create Cuts in the top right hand corner to finalize the edits.

Can I make further edits to a cut once I have created it?
No, once a cut has been created, it cannot be edited. You need to return to the Original Recording and create a new cut.

Do I need to add captions to my cuts?
No, captioning will automatically be added to all new cuts that you create.
