Webinar offer a wealth of valuable information that can also become different pieces of informative content to attract new audiences. Utilizing webinar recordings this way can help you to get more out of your effort in event marketing, and create evergreen content that continuously brings value to users. Here I’ll show you how you can edit webinar videos effortlessly.

Why should you edit webinar videos? 

First things first, why do you need to edit webinars? If you are hosting webinars regularly, you should edit webinars to create new content for your website, social media, or other platforms. Editing your webinar recordings can help you to:

  • Improve your content quality: removing filler words like “ums” and redundancies or mistakes can make your webinar go smoothly. Adding visuals, subtitles or background music can help improve the overall quality of the content.
  • Repurpose to create new content: instead of having hour-long videos, consider making clips.
  • Increase engagement: to keep the audience engaged, consider adding interactive elements like polls or quizzes. And with the ability to turn webinars into blog posts, social media posts, or even ebooks, you can get creative and turn webinar into other formats

  • Import from Zoom 
  • Paste a YouTube link
  • Upload your video file (Vizard supports M4V, MP4, AVI, MOV, and more)

Once you upload your video, your will be transcribed into videos into text. Vizard detects and cuts out speakers and shared screen recording from your video so you can make edits to each speaker or screen with ease. 

Trim your webinar video

Once you finish uploading, you will be taken to our editor, where you can make all sorts of edits you want to your webinar recordings. 

You can trim your video to remove any unwanted parts, such as the intro or any awkward transitions. With Vizard’s user-friendly interface, you can edit your video by editing the text, just like you would when editing a Google Doc. The text also helps you locate the highlighting clip quickly.

To make your videos look nice and on brand, there are a few things that you can do in Vizard:

By editing the video layout, you can create a more streamlined and visually appealing experience for the viewer. Click the Layout button and apply the layout, or you can also change the layout manually by dragging and dropping your speakers or shared screens.
