Hi Stacy,

Have you tried extending the time of the video in the timeline?

If not, you have to extend the length of the slide first.

Then you can extend the length of the video by clicking on it and dragging the end to the desired length. Just make sure you have the horizontal arrows when dragging and not the four way arrows (see picture below).

It seemed to work well for me in the past.

Hope it works out for you.

Jay.
When the cursor turns to a double-arrow, and I click to shorten the video, is it compressing it or cutting it? It seems to be compressing.

Thanks,

Okay. Here’s what I have. I want to crop the end of the video to be in line with the audio.
[cid:image001.jpg@01D0A9B9.1ACA3DD0]
If I do it in video editor, I’m having trouble aligning the seconds of audio and video, since they don’t coincide with one another.
(different course I’m creating, same issue.)

Upper image in this shot is of Video editor at 1:52, while the lower part of the shot indicates the video on the timeline is 109 sec. One minute & 52 seconds doesn’t equal 109 sec. I know this seems off track, but I’m looking for the most effective, accurate way to trim a video end.

Thanks for your help.

Stacy,

Within the video editor in Storyline is a "Trim" button on the tool bar. The size of the trim zones or areas is adjustable. Just hold your cursor on the edge of the trim zone and an adjustment indicator will pop up. Then you can click and drag the trim zone to the desired time. This can be done at the beginning or end of the video.

As for the time differences I get the same thing with my videos. It might take some trial and error to get things to line up.

Additionally, have you tried Articulate Replay? In some cases it comes free with Storyline 2. I think it is designed to work specifically with video and might work better.
