Editing using Personal Capture

 

Editing using Personal Capture for Mac:

Echo360 provides two tools for editing your captures after the recording has taken place. 

  • Trim (edit the beginning and end of the recording) 
  • Cut (edit the middle of the recording) 

You can select a recording for editing in one of two ways:

  • Immediately after stopping a recording, the Edit Recording screen appears.
  • On My Recordings screen select the recording and click View/Edit. The Edit Recording screen appears.


Trim

To Trim the recording from front and back, drag the left slider in to trim the front of the recording. Drag the right slider in to trim the end of the recording. (Note: You can position the playhead in the spot you want to view.)


Click Apply Edits. (Note: Changes cannot be undone after the edits are applied.) The trim(s) is applied and you return to the My Recordings screen.


Cut

Position the playhead on the section where you want the cut to start (e.g. 00:00:14) and click the mark-in button. This places the mark-in point at current playhead position.


Position the playhead on the section where you want the cut to stop and click the mark-out button. This places the mark-out point at current playhead position.


Once you are happy with your mark-in and mark-out points for the cut, click Cut. The cut area(s) will appear gray on the timeline.


(Note: To clear the last cut made, double-click the gray cut area. To clear all cuts made to the timeline, click the Clear Cuts button at the bottom of the application window. A popup appears asking for confirmation to clear all cuts from the recording. Click Yes.)


Click Apply Edits. (Note: Changes cannot be undone after the edits are applied.) The cut(s) is applied and you return to the My Recordings screen.


In the My Recordings screen, the recording shows a progress bar as the edits are applied. Once edits are complete, the status changes to Edited.
