Video editor - taking out a middle chunk of the video

Sep 03, 2013

Is it possible to remove a piece (or multiple pieces) from within a video? Using the "Trim" function, I'm only to trim off the ends of a screencast.

This is too bad. I used to use Camtasia, part of the Lectura suite which had this feature.  I never even looked for it during my selection process since it seemed like an obvious feature.  I'm now I need to find another editor I suppose.  I already had to run my iPhone videos through a tool to rotate them.  Is it slated for the next release?

Hi Mary Ellen!

I would advise that you share your thoughts with our product development team here.  As far as future features or product roadmaps, this is not information that is shared.

I want to be sure that you do know you can cut/delete audio if needed though. The instructions are included in this tutorial.

Hi, Michael.

That's a great question! 

Here's how you can export the screen recording:

  • Go to Slides > Record Screen > Choose your video

  • Right-click the image of the video and choose Export.

I hope this helps!

I find that right clicking on the image does nothing, there is no context menu at all, though the right click brings up the context menu on other areas.

Hi Caddi,

The directions Maria shared above are specific to exporting a screen recording in Storyline 360. Is this what you are working with as well?

If so, please be sure that you are opening the Insert Slides Menu via Slides > Record Screen > Select your video so that you can right-click to export the video.

If you're still having difficulty, please share your project file publicly here or send it to me privately by uploading it here. I'll delete it when I'm done troubleshooting.

What kind of old video editor do you use, since you have such a simple problems? There are, actually, plenty of free video editors you may use. Even online versions. Or basic Windows maker if you have one on your OS.

For instance, by this URL you may try to use online version and solve all of your problems you may have right now.
