YuJa (All Users) - Insert or Override a Section of Video

This article walks you through how to insert a video click or override a video clip.

Before making any edits to a video, it is a best practice to make a copy of the video for a back-up. In the event that an error is made editing the video, the back-up will provide access to the original content. Follow these instructions to make a copy of the video.

You will have four choices to add a video:
  • Current Time - Override
  • Current Time - Insert
  • At Beginning
  • At End
"At Beginning" will insert the new video at the beginning of the current video. "At End" will insert the new video at the end of the current video.

Current Time - Override

You will manually select the location where the new video will be added. This option will override the existing video. For example Video 1 is 2:00 minutes long. The new video (Video 2) is :30 seconds long.

Video 2 will begin at 1:00 and replace Video 1 for 30 seconds. Video 1 will pick up at 1:30 and finish at 2:00 minutes. The thirty seconds of Video 1 is gone.

Current Time - Insert

Using the example above, when inserting a video, Video 1 splits at the timeline (1:00 minute), inserts Video 2 for :30 seconds, the continues where Video 1 left off. It will increase the length of the video by Video 2's thirty seconds to make the video 2:30.
