Utilizing the Video Editor in Canvas and MiVideo MediaSpace. 


Video Editor allows you to edit a media file by trimming, chopping, splicing video segments and creating a copy.

  • Trimming allows you to permanently remove frames from the beginning and/or the end of a video
  • Chopping allows the video to be broken into segments
  • Splicing merges together video segments
  • You can create a full or partial copy of your video using the Save a Copy button

See the Edit Media articles to edit the details about the media.


  • To preserve the source video, consider saving a copy first
  • For help with audio trimming, please contact the ITS Service Center or your KMC administrator
  • If you have deleted all the slides and chapters from a Timeline presentation but are still getting a message that trimming cannot be performed, just reload the page
