How to create clips from a Full Session Recording

Modified on Wed, 01 May 2024 at 12:19 PM

Medal contains two trimming methods. One for Full Session Recordings and another for Clips.


Full Session Recording Trimming

Before opening the trimming window, if you pressed your clip hotkey at any time while recording a full session, you will see the bookmarks appear on your session. Clicking on the bookmarks here will allow you to quickly skip to your moments of interest.

When you open the trimming window for a Full Session Recording, you will be greeted with this window:

Just like the previous window, you can click on each bookmark to take you straight to your moments of interest. You can also add bookmarks with the Add Bookmark button. 

When you are ready to make an edit, hit the Start Trimming button. When you are ready to make a clip, hit the + Clip button that appears in your edit. 

Once you have saved the clip, it will appear on the right-hand side. You can then click on it to open this clip in the editor window and either make more edits or post it!

With full session recording, you can make as many clips are you want from a single session.

Clip length is a maximum of 2 minutes. (10 minutes with Premium) 

Once you have created the clips you want from your session, back out of the trimming menu either by pressing the button or pressing ESC on your keyboard to see your new clips for upload!
