Can a slide's timeline be shortened easily after video editing?
I have several videos imported into Storyline 3, and I have edited sections out of them. Some sections are no longer than a minute, and other sections are upwards of a half hour.
My problem is that Storyline will import the whole video, and make the timeline on the slide as long as the whole video. Which means I may be facing videos that in edited form might be like 4 minutes, but I have a residual timeline on the slide that might be 6500 frames.
So my question is: is there a way to easily shorten the frames on a timeline of an imported video, without resorting to dragging the end point back to the new end point?
A second question might be, what is the relationship between an imported video, the edited portion, and the frames on the timeline where it sits? Does it follow that the zero point of the edit automatically goes to the first frame of the timeline after editing?
My other option is to edit the videos themselves outside of Storyline 3, then import them. Might be my best option.
