We now have a Video Editor feature for your GoToWebinar recordings! If you are a GoToWebinar Pro or Plus plan customer you should see it available in your account soon.
You tidy up the beginning and end of your webinar recordings and also cut out any sections in between when needed.

Very nice. I just tried it out and was able to cut the dead space before the webinar started as well as cut out the break in the middle of the webinar. I have been using FinalCut Pro for editing videos for many years and found this very simple and intuitive.
I assume that after I am done editing, I select Save, and that's it.
How long before the edited video is available to the public?
Thanks for trying the new feature and sharing your thoughts. Once you have finished editing your recording it will be listed as In Progress on your My Recordings page. How long it takes to process before you can share it will vary, based on the size of the recording and then number of recordings being processed at the time but, it should only be a matter of minutes in most cases.
We would like to test your BETA video editor for GoToWebinar. Sent an email to the email you had put in the announcement, but haven't received anything so far.
Thanks for letting us in on the new editor.
Thanks for the post Glenn. I like the direction that GoToWebinar is moving for recording editing.
I would like to make a feature request to be able to upload edited recordings from a program such as Adobe Premiere Pro. Few reasons...
1. Ability to stitch mutiple recordings together as it can be challening to get high profile presenters in one recording session.
2. Easier to record using studio equipment and post edit for a higher quality webinar experience.
3. Generally more flexibility.
Robert_ - You can! Have you tried it?
I often edit my GoTo recordings in FinalCut Pro, then upload them to GoTo.
I find the new online recording editor is nice for triming the beginning and end of a file, but it is no faster than editing the file in Final Cut Pro and uploading the file. For folks who do not have access to Final Cut Pro, Premiere, or other video editing applications, the online tool that GoTo provides does a good job at a simple task.
I will give this a try. I called support yesterday specifically about this and asked them and they told me it couldn't be done... bit of a disconnect.
Do you know how new this feature is?
