Feature Spotlight: Creating Clips

April 02 2009 by Lynne Burke

SnapStream’s Clipping feature makes it easy to work with just the portion of video of interest to you. In a few quick steps, this easy-to-use feature lets you edit out only the part of the program that you need, which you can then:

  • Download
  • Email

How it works:

Step 1: Once you've used the search feature to identify the segment of video you want to clip out, click on the "scissors" in the top navigation bar:


Step 2: Then, using the "Set Start" and "Set End" buttons above the timecode bar (or the shortcuts "Z" and "X" on your keyboard), simply set the beginning and end of the segment you want to clip out. Remember, you can also use the "comma" and "period" shortcuts on your keyboard to skip backward in 7-second increments and forward in 30-second increments; you can also use the space bar to pause at the precise frame. The left and right arrow keys allow you to move frame-by-frame through the video.


Step 3: Then simply hit "clip" and just that portion of the video broadcast will be saved separately as a clip in the clips area of your menu. It also allows you to rename the clip for simplified recall.


Step 4: Then, from the full-screen interface, you can email that clip or download it.

It's as simple as that. You can then erase the original program to make room for more recordings! SnapStream's Clipping feature makes it easy to work with video.

How to find SnapStream at NAB 2008

April 10 2008 by Rakesh

The Las Vegas Convention center is huge at 3.2 million square feet and while at the National Association of Broadcasters show in Las Vegas, SnapStream only occupies 100 sq. ft. of that space. And based on feedback from visitors last year, we know that the SnapStream booth was hard to find.

Hopefully this year we're easier to find simply because we're not as far back in the South Upper Hall as we were last year (many thanks to our contact at the NAB, Joy Lindsey!):

But, we still wanted to make it easier for you to find us so here are some maps and directions.

Directions to SnapStream at NAB2008:

1. Get to the South Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center (veterans of the Las Vegas Convention Center will know that this is on one end of the convention center, furthest away from the Hilton and the North Hall)

2. Take the escalator up to the South Upper Hall

3. Walk down the main corridor of the South Upper Hall (you'll pass massive booths from companies like Sony and Motorola)

4. When you see the Ross Video booth, hang a left.

5. You'll see us on a corner to your right -- our booth number is #SU6008.

See you at NAB!
