In this article, you will learn the basics of editing a video in Panopto. 

1. Open the Video

In your video library, hover over the video you want to edit, expand the More menu, represented by three vertical dots, and then select Edit.

The video will open in the Panopto editor. 

Note: If the video is a reference copy,  a warning notice will appear before you proceed to the Panopto editor. 

2. Change the Title

You can change the title of your video by clicking on the title bar and updating the text. 

Click Enter when you're finished.

3. Timeline

The timeline is at the bottom of the editor. It consists of a separate row for each stream recorded in the video.

When you play the video, you will see the red vertical bar move along the timeline.

4. Trim the Video

To trim a video, you will select the cut tool.

When you select the cut tool, you will see a dark gray line appear at the beginning and end of the timeline.

Play your video from the beginning and pause it right before you'd like it to start. 

Select the cut tool and click and drag the gray line to trim out the section of the video.

You perform the same steps to cut out the end of the video, and you can click and drag in the middle of the timeline to trim those sections as well.

Cut sections will always appear in the timeline but will not playback in the Panopto viewer once you publish your changes. That is because Panopto's editor is non-destructive.  You are able to re-add those sections back in your video at any time.

Click Apply when you are done making your changes.
