Practice Activities:

  1. Trim the Beginning or Ending of a Media Clip
  2. Split a Media Clip into Two Segments
  3. Cut Out Part of a Media Clip and Stitch the Remaining Segments Back Together
  4. Delete Part of a Media Clip and Keep the Remaining Segments Separate
  5. Silence Part of a Media Clip
  6. Change the Volume of a Media Clip

Practice Activity: Trim the Beginning or Ending of a Media Clip

  1. Open the Replay_360_Practice.replay project in your practice files.
  2. Select any media clip in the timeline.
  3. Drag the left end of the object to trim the beginning or drag the right end to trim the ending.

Practice Activity: Split a Media Clip into Two Segments

Sometimes it’s helpful to split an audio clip, video, or image into two or more segments to have more control over the timing of elements in your project.

  1. Click the timeline at the point where you want to split a media clip. The playhead will move to that point on the timeline.
  2. Select the media clip. (This activates the editing features on the ribbon.)
  3. Click Split on the ribbon. Voilà! Now your media clip has been split into two objects.

Practice Activity: Cut Out Part of a Media Clip and Stitch the Remaining Segments Back Together

Now let’s use the enhanced playhead to cut out part of a media clip.

  1. Drag the purple time-range markers to outline a portion of a media clip that you want to remove.
  2. Select the media clip. (This activates the editing features on the ribbon.)
  3. Hover over the Cut button on the ribbon to see a preview of what it’ll do to your selected media clip.
  4. Now click Cut on the ribbon to remove the selected portion of your media clip. You’ll see a dashed, vertical line on the media clip to indicate where the selection was removed and the remaining segments were stitched back together.

Practice Activity: Delete Part of a Media Clip and Keep the Remaining Segments Separate

The new delete feature works like the split and cut features combined. In other words, you can cut out part of a media clip, but the remaining segments won’t be stitched back together. They’ll remain split.

  1. Drag the purple time-range markers to outline a portion of a media clip that you want to remove.
  2. Select the media clip. (This activates the editing features on the ribbon.)
  3. Click Delete on the ribbon.

Practice Activity: Silence Part of a Media Clip

Let’s silence part of a media clip.

  1. Drag the purple time-range markers to outline a portion of the webcam video that you want to silence.
  2. Select the webcam video in your practice file. (This activates the editing features on the ribbon.)
  3. Hover over the Silence button on the ribbon to see a preview of what it’ll do to your media clip.
  4. Now click Silence on the ribbon.

Practice Activity: Change the Volume of a Media Clip

  1. Select the webcam video in your practice file.
  2. Select Manual in the volume options on the right side of the screen.
  3. Use the volume slider to adjust the volume of the media clip.
