Panopto - Limited Editing

The Panopto editor allows for web based editing from any Mac or Windows computer. Silverlight is required for editing. The Panopto Editor lets you create multiple versions, called "edits", of recorded sessions. The edit called default is created automatically, and contains the entire recording. You can modify default or create additional edits without affecting the original session content.
Launch Panopto and click the edit icon next to an already recorded video lecture.

By default, the entire recording is an already selected segment. **A segment is the selected portion of video that you want to keep**

To remove the beginning and end of a recording, grab the handle on either end of the time line and drag it inward to the point at which you want the recording to begin or end.
