Skimming the discussion I didn't see this mentioned, so I apologize if I'm repeating someone else.

The first thing I've done to edit out unexpected sounds, pop ups on the screen, or mis-speaks, is to stop the recording immediately and then pick up where I left off. If there's a natural pause soon before, I might start over there. Then I can easily trim off the end of the previous recording to get them to match up.

Here's another workaround that's worked to cut out or adjust the volume on one particular section of a recording:

1. Make all other edits on the project first (trim sections mentioned above, add lower thirds, adjust the A/B track, etc)

2. Publish the video

3. Open a new Replay project and insert the video I just published.

4. Pause at the exact spot before I want to make the edit; trim off the rest of the video.

5. Insert the video again and pause at the end of the section I want to cut out or that needs the volume adjusted. Then either trim off the start (to cut the section) or the end (to adjust the volume of that section with the manual setting)

6. If necessary, insert the video again and repeat for the rest as needed until you have all pieces fitting together and playing as desired.

This method obviously isn't ideal to remove all minor mishaps, but for adjustments that would cause me to re-record, I've found this much quicker in most cases. Also, I should mention that I haven't used the webcam yet, so that may add a layer that makes these tips not work as well. Hope this makes sense and helps someone!

Hi Adam,

This thread is a bit older so I'm not certain that folks are subscribed to respond here, but you may also want to search through the Building Better Courses side of the forums, as it tends to focus more on discussions related to design, how to, or other ideas and software needs. 

Best of luck with figuring out something that'll work for your team!

Hi Everyone,

This thread is over two years old?   Is this item in the works?  I am just new to Storyline 2 but find this to be a big issue!   It is almost impossible to create a video that doesn't require some type of editing.   I can't record in Storyline and save as a video and I can't edit in Replay.....very frustrating.   I would like to make the timeline on one slide longer and delete another one...please, please make this an update....

And how do I add this as a feature request?
