Hi Caleb, 

Does the video have 200 seconds of time or the slide's timeline? The timeline won't readjust to match the shorter video length now - and actually stays at the length of the longest media you previously inserted. 

If it's the video itself that is not saving, I'd want to check into a few things:

Is this only happening in this one file? You may want to try importing it into a new file as described here. If it's happening across multiple files, then I'd suggest to conduct a repair of Storyline.

Hi Caleb,

Are you unable to drag the timeline back to the left towards the now shorter object? There isn't a way that the timeline on that slide will snap back to match to video - but could you copy the video onto a new slide? That way the timeline would automatically adjust to the new video length. 

It's been something that other users mentioned they'd like to see as a feature request.

I am able to  drag the timeline back, however, it's just tedious. I haven't tried copying the video onto a new slide, but does that really work because doesn't Storyline think it's a 200 second video?

Thanks for your help,

Hi Caleb, 

We've heard from other users about dragging the timeline being tedious and wanting an option to just set it or have it snap to the longest item on the timeline. All great ideas for feature requests.   There is a nice method here to make it a little quicker. 

The copy paste method does work, and you could still use the "reset" video button in case you cropped it too much.
