Editing a Video

  1. To begin, click Assets in the side navigation menu and select the repository holding the Video Plus asset you want to edit.
  2. Select the Video Plus asset and click View to open the video.
  3. Click Edit to open the Edit tab, display the video timeline and enable the video editing tools. If the video has a audio track, it is shown on the timeline. If there is more than one audio track, you can click Select Audio and choose the sound track to use.
  4. Make your edits using the editing tools as described above.
  5. Click Save a Copy and enter a title for the copy, then click Create.
  6. Select whether you want to save the edited video as a new asset, a rendition of the asset, or a new version of the original asset. If saving as a rendition, enter a name for the rendition. The name cannot exceed 28 characters.

    Note:

    Remember, you can only edit the current version of an asset. If you edit out a segment of a video that you may want to use later for a different video, you will want to save the edited video as a new asset so you can use the original asset for additional videos.
  7. Click OK.
