How to top and tail

The most common form of editing is known as a Top and Tail in which the start and end of the video is trimmed.

  • Lecture recordings should comply with copyright policy
  • Using 'commit to new' is only suggested when making multiple versions from the same source video. 'Commit to current' is usually the best option as it saves the edits without creating a new presentation
  • The web-editor is non-destructive and content edited out can be recovered until the intermediate revisions are deleted.
  • It is important to note that the web-editor is not designed to be used for large scale editing but rather minor edits.
