triming a video

Jan 03, 2014

Hello everyone

Happy new year to all!

Im posting today about a problem i encounter when i want to trim a video. I can move the end line of the trimming, but i can't find the way to move the start line of the trimming.

Is there a trick to it that i should know of?

Thanks a lot!

Hi Nathalie,

You should be able to drag the starting point to the right just as you dragged the ending point to the left as you'll see here:

If you're video is not working as expected, you'll also want to check that:

  • You work on your local drive (your C: drive).Working on a network drive or a USB drive can cause erratic behavior, includingfile corruption, loss of audio, and other unexpected behavior. 
  • You should also make sure the directory pathto your project files and your published output is less than 260 characters(for example C:\Articulate).
  • Avoid using special characters, accents orsymbols in your file names.

As a reminder, there are certain video types which cannot be edited:

  • SWF movies cannot be edited in Storyline. To edit SWF movies, you will need to use third-party editing software, and then import the edited files into Storyline.
  • FLV movies with alpha channel transparency cannot be edited in Storyline. However, you can edit FLV movies that don't have transparency.
  • Videos that have been inserted from a website, such as Screenr or YouTube, cannot be edited in Storyline.
