If you have the Create Video Clips permission, you can create and save video clips from full-length videos and download portions of videos. Video clips can be created, saved, and downloaded from the Asset Details page.


Widen Collective admins can contact the Widen Central Support team to enable or disable the Video Clipping feature. Collective admins can enable the permission for you on the Roles page under Permission Settings in the left navigation of the Admin app.

Create video clips

To create a video clip, click an asset's filename in search results, then click the scissors icon below the preview on the Asset Details page.



On the Clip Video page, click and drag in the timeline beneath the video. For a more accurate selection, use the listed keyboard shortcuts. Enter a clip description, then click save.


Saved video clips are then available for download in the My Clips section. Only the video clips you have created will display in My Clips.
