Editing the Video in Panopto

In the Panopto video editor there is a preview window and a timeline which contains the video clips and corresponding audio.

Trim a Video   

  1. Play the video from the beginning and pause it right before where the cut should start.
  2. Select the cut tool.
  3. A dark gray line will appear at the beginning and end of the timeline.
  4. Select and drag the gray line to trim out the section of the video.
  5. The gray line will snap into position with the red one. This will allow for more precision with cuts.
  6. When done editing, select Apply.
