Edit Recording Playback
Posted by on 04 May 2011 08:51 AM
The Edit Playback functionality allows you to modify certain elements of your recording's playback. You can set custom Start and End times, as well as insert custom Cue points to aid in recording navigation.
This feature can be accessed by following these steps:
The editing controls are only available while you are logged in to your account and are only accessible by clicking on the Play link.
Please Note: Viewing the link via the Recording URL, even if logged in, will not display the editing controls.
This is the control panel you will use to edit your recording. Use it to set a beginning point, an end point, or a custom cue point. When you have finished your edits click on Save to save them. If you wish to revert playback back to its original recorded state click on the Reset button.
A beginning point sets where a recording will begin to playback when watched by a viewer. Navigate to the point in the recording you wish playback to begin and then click on the Set Beginning Point button. Once you have created a Beginning Point it will be displayed in the list and you can manually edit it if needed.
Please Note: A Beginning Point cannot be set after an end point.
An End Point sets where the recording will end its playback. Similar to the beginning point, navigate to time you want your recording to end and click the Set End Point button. Once you have created an End Point it will be displayed in the list and you can manually edit it if needed.
Please Note: An End Point cannot be set before a Beginning Point.
A custom Cue Point allows you to manually set custom navigation points so that your viewers can quickly jump to a point in your recording. To create a custom Cue Point navigate to a desired time in your recording and click the Add Cue Point button. This will bring up the Cue Point option box which allows you to set the name of the cue point and edit its time.
Please Note: Cue Points should not be created outside the bounds of the Beginning or End times.
Play From Viewer Beginning
Once you have completed your edits, you can preview your recording by clicking on the Play From Viewer Beginning button. This will allow you to view your recording as it will appear to your attendees. Use this feature to fine tune the position of your Beginning Point, End Point, and custom Cue Points.
After you have finished making your edits you need to click on the Save button in order for your edits to be saved.
If you need to restore your recording to its original playback settings, or wish to undue all of your edits, click the Reset button.
