Video editing in Opencast

Video editing differs slightly depending on the type of video or recording.

Editing uploads

Select the 'Edit' option in the video dropdown.

[Translate to Englisch:] Login Dialog

Now log in with your University account (firstname.surname).

[Translate to Englisch:] Videoeditor

The video editor appears.

Here you will find the tools for cutting, as well as for image and sound control.

[Translate to Englisch:] Zeitleiste mit Schere

The concept is that you select segments that you then activate or deactivate. Inactive segments are skipped in the finished video.

Segments are therefore not actually cut out, but only marked and switched off.

[Translate to Englisch:] Segmente

Use the mouse or the buttons to move the playhead to the desired positions. Click on the scissors to split the segments. Click on the eye symbol to show or hide segments.

The 'x' removes cut marks and rejoins segments.

[Translate to Englisch:] Workflow wählen

To publish the edited video, select the 'Publish' workflow at the bottom right and confirm by clicking on the green button.

[Translate to Englisch:] Videoverarbeitung

Use the browser's 'back' function to return to your ILIAS course. The video will be labelled accordingly during processing.

[Translate to Englisch:] Video fertig

The video can then be played and downloaded if applicable.
