    Series X trimming clips not working


    Had series x since day 1 & this feature has never worked for me. Try to trim a clip, it does nothing for 30 seconds then says unable to trim. Tried multiple clips from multiple games, hard resets etc, refuses to work. Any ideas?

    :)

    Clips

    There used to be an app called Upload Studio which has just been removed from the App Store. To trim your videos from your Xbox follow these steps.

    1. First capture your gameplay by pressing your xbox button followed by X.

    2. After a short while your clip will have saved to your recent captures.

    3. To see these captures press your xbox button again and move to Capture & Share.

    4. Go to recent captures and press A, then choose which clip you want to trim and edit.

    5. An option should now appear near bottom of list saying Trim.

    6. It may take several moments to load in your clip.

    7. Move your left analogue to trim your clip from.the start and your right to trim it from the end.

    8. When finished press A to preview clip or X to save.

    Hope this has helped.

    Upload Studio No Longer Trimming

    Hi there SeaNee,

    I haven't heard of this particular error. There are a couple of things that might help us understand a bit better:

    1. Is it after you select the section of your clip to Trim that you're seeing the "Total Length" still showing as the original length of the Trim?
    2. When you're making the Trim, does the new trimmed length show on "Trimmed Length" in the top left and on the timestamp on the bar below the clip?
    3. Is this happening when you do "Just a Trim" or is this happening during a Multi-clip?

    Please let us know the answer to those questions and we'll work from there.

    Upload Studio/Video Editor

    I agree its not the greatest at this point in time. I usually only use the upload studio to trim short clips. If I really want to edit videos, I capture to my pc and use different software. I would like to think that it will get a good update in the future
    or at least when the series x comes out.

    Having trouble trimming a clip

    I have now uploaded a video focusing on this issue, it shows me trimming the clips and the issues leading after that, I would hope if someone could watch it and give me some help related to the issue so I can fully trim this clip without any errors occuring,
    thanks

    After examining your video, and looking at it from my console, The "Trim" option you have available on that bar, isn't available in my app strangely. Not sure why that trim option is there, have you checked to see if the Xbox DVR has been updated recently?

    Alternatively (as a work around) to trim your clip, you can "edit in Upload Studio" which will allow you trim the clip in that app (Simply pushing the left stick to move the starting point, and the right stick to move the ending
    point) and will allow you to save and upload the trimmed clip to xbox or onedrive as well.

    Upload Studio/Video Editor

    I have a work around for the trim feature not working. I tend to find it works with 2 minute recordings a lot better than with any other size.

    Also rather than load the video editor I tend to trim my clips directly from the recent captures.

    Hope this helps :)
