Edit and Publish Personal Capture for Mac

Once you've recorded your capture, you're ready to edit and publish your personal capture.

You can access your recordings from the main screen by clicking "My Recordings" and selecting View/Edit or Publish as an option. You will also be brought to the edit screen after you stop a successful capture.


Edit Your Capture

You can only change the IN (beginning) and OUT (end) points of your capture, and trimming some unnecessary portions. 

  • Click and Drag the IN and OUT icons to trim the beginning and end. 
  • Click and Drag the Trim IN and Trim OUT icons to save only a segment of your capture. Click on the scissors to cut that segment.sites/brown.edu.information-technology.knowledge-base/files/trims.jpg
  • Click "Apply Edits" to save the finished 

(Note: Once you click on "Apply Edits", you cannot undo the edits. Portions you trim from the beginning, end, or middle will save as your final draft.)

If you are a Canvas user, the new Echo will show up under the EchoCenter available as a left navigation item.
