How to Chop a Recording

NOTE: During spring 2019 Tufts is replacing CaptureSpace Lite with Kaltura's new capture tool, Kaltura Capture.  Both tools will be available until May 30, 2019.  Starting June 1, 2019, only Kaltura Capture will be available.

We encourage you to start capturing video with Kaltura Captura (instead of CaptureSpace Lite) as soon as is convenient.

To get started, visit these user guides for Kaltura Capture.

Feel free to contact for assistance with lecture capture.

Chopping a recording means cutting out sections of unwanted footage from the middle.  

If you just finished recording and clicked "DONE", your recording will already be open in a preview window.

Or you can open  and chop a recording from the CaptureSpace Lite Library.

Click PLAY or PAUSE to preview the recording

While the clip is playing, click anywhere in the timeline to jump to that spot.

Move each handle to the "bracket" the material you want to remove.

Position the left handle at the start of material you want to remove. Position the right handle at the end of material you want to remove.

Click APPLY to chop out that section
