Need help editing with Cinamaker? 

With Cinamaker, you have the ability to edit your recording in playback using the in-app editor. 

In this video, we’ll go over the in-app editor and show you how to get the most out of your Cinamaker projects once your live stream or recording has ended.

The in-app editor can be accessed immediately after you finish recording, or anytime by simply opening your past projects at the bottom of the home screen, or through the “my projects” section in the home screen menu. 

When you select your project, it will immediately open in editing mode. Here you’ll notice that all cameras previously appearing in the preview monitors are now appearing as  "playback monitors". And the program output monitor is now the “program playback” screen.

When you tap the play button to watch the playback of your production you’ll notice the color-coded timeline below the playback monitor screen is reflecting the camera edit decisions made during the recording. 

To overwrite your decisions, tap the smaller red button to the left of the play button. Here you will need to select between the three sources you’d like to override. Each function is active and ready to edit if “red” and inactive if “white”.

Once activated. Then tap the big red button to start the playback where you can now re-edit and overwrite your camera decisions, audio mix, and graphic/media layers of the original recording.

A note here: it is always best to make a duplicate of your projects before overwriting your edits just in case you want to preserve the original recording.

You can also edit and cut your project into smaller clips by taping the scissors to the bottom left of the preview monitor, and adjusting the duration of your video, by selecting “cut”, “copy” and “paste”. 

Once you have finished editing, the last step is to select render to save your newly edited version.  

Another powerful feature of Cinamaker is to export your projects to Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere, or your favorite editor. We will cover that in another video
