How to trim your video

Trimming your video


If you are recording to a Self-Submit activity, you have the option to Trim your video before you post it. Trimming allows you to trim off the ends of your video only, you can't remove anything from the middle of the video.

Follow this step-by-step tutorial or the listed steps below.

 

  1. Follow the steps in Posting to a Self-Submit Activity to record your video.
  2. After you finish recording, click the Trim icon (a pair of scissors) at the bottom left of the toolbar.

  3. Use the sliders and/or timestamps to adjust how much time to remove from the beginning/end of the video.

  4. When you are finished, click "Trim and Post" at the top of the video.
  5. That's it!  

Please note

The trimming feature can only be used on newly recorded videos. Previously posted videos, as well as uploads, cannot be trimmed in GoReact.  Instead, you will need to download your video from GoReact and then edit it using a third-party program (such as Quicktime or PowerPoint). After you trim your video, you can re-upload it to GoReact.
