How do I trim the in and out points of an asset?

Sometimes the assets you have available in Liveclicker may require trimming off a few seconds. This may happen for example if you have acquired the video asset from an Exchange partner, and the exchange partner has its logo at the beginning and the end of the video.

To trim an asset, visit the asset detail page first then click on Trim this asset now


Then, a new page will appear where you can see your video asset. Use the sliders below the video to select the part of the video you want to keep. As you drag the sliders, you will see the offset start and end numbers update on the right side of the page. If you want to be even more detailed, you can select exactly the start and end frame for your trim. Once ready, click Trim Video below the video.


This will trigger a reencoding process where your old asset will be replaced by a trimmed version. During this process you will receive two email alerts: a first alert when the process has started, then a second one when complete.

The trimming process is not reversible. Please proceed with care.
