4.3.  Play your video from the beginning and pause it right before you'd like it to start. Select the cut tool and click and drag the gray line to trim out the section of the video (Fig. 8). Note: The gray line will snap into position with the red one, this will allow you to be more precise with your cuts.

4.4.  You perform the same steps to cut out the end of the video, and you can click and drag in the middle of the timeline to trim those sections as well (Fig. 9).

4.5.  Cut sections will always appear in the timeline but will not playback in the Panopto viewer once you publish your changes. That is because Panopto's editor is non-destructive, and we always want to make sure you are able to re-add those sections back into your video at any time if necessary.

4.6.  Click Apply when you are done making your changes (Fig. 10).
