This is the first post in a series of posts about Kaltura’s time-based features such as in-video chapters, advertisement cue-points, and more. With Kaltura’s easy-to-use clipping and trimming tools within the KMC, you can easily create highlight reels from a long piece of content. Potential use cases include editors creating “Top Moment” highlights from sports footage, top quotes from a keynote speech, or highlights of specific topics in a recorded lecture at a university.
Kaltura’s trimming feature allows you to replace the original file, while our clipping tool creates a new entry in addition to the original file. Editing can be performed very accurately, at a frame level or a millisecond level of granularity. Every clip creates a new video file that is encoded to multiple flavors, can be downloaded, distributed and played back on any device.
Clipping and trimming is a great way to reduce content drop off, by making your videos shorter, clearer and to the point!
This video tutorial will show you how to use Kaltura’s trimming and clipping tools. Try it for yourself, start a free trial account. Stay tuned for our next blog post on another time-based feature: advertisement cue points.
