How to trim and stitch your Loom video

✂️ Stitch together and trim videos, so you never have to rerecord again! 

Our trim and stitch features work together to help you get the most out of your Loom videos. Using our stitch feature, you can combine videos (made by yourself or others) into one and use our trim feature to cut out any of those 'um' mishaps!

clips together will allow you to:

    • Create content collaboratively (stitch Looms with others)
    • Create cross-platform videos (stitch mobile+desktop Looms)
    • Create Looms with reusable content (stitch in an intro or outro for sale demos)
    • Add a topic into a Loom (stitch in the content you forgot to mention) 

Here's how to: 👇

⚠️ You will only be able to make up to 150 trims per clip. You also will only be able to trim videos that are 5 hours or less in length.

Here's a video walkthrough of how to trim your video:

Here are the written Steps:
  1. After recording, click Edit your video from the video side panel Edit tab. 

  2. You have now entered trimming mode! Trim your video by dragging the handles. Trim the beginning and end to cut out any setting up or stopping of your video, or use the Split button to cut out middle portions.


  3. If you'd like to be extra precise, you can also use the arrow keys to nudge the timestamps back and forth. This will give you the most accurate trim possible!

  4. You can trim multiple clips in the same trimming experience. You can also go back and edit the trims you previously made.
  5. Once you're happy with your trim edits, select click Save Changes.

What to do if your trim gets stuck?

If your trim has been processing for over 30 mins, it's possible there was an error during the process. But don't worry, your video is not lost!  Here are two ways you can fix this:

  1. Open back up the trim page, slightly adjust one of your current trims, and then publish the minor change. This will re-process all of your trim and should enable your video to process successfully.
  2. Open your trim page, select Revert to Original, then restart your Chrome browser. From here, you should be able to successfully trim again. 


What video clips can I stitch together?  
You can stitch any videos you or other teammates have created (this includes creators outside of your workspace)!

If you want to stitch a video from another creator, you will need the following: the video URL, access to view, and the video will need “Viewers can stitch video” enabled. 
What happens to the original video of clips added? 
Nothing! No changes will be made to the original video source of clips added. 
How do I allow others to add my video as a clip? 
Anyone can add your video as a clip as long as they have the video URL and your video has Viewers can stitch this video to others enabled in your Video settings. 
How do I block others from adding my video as a clip? 
If you don’t want your video to be accessible to other creators for stitching, all you need to do is toggle off Stitch from Video settings. This will prevent others from being able to add your video as a clip to theirs. If you wish for none of your videos to be added by others, set your Default settings with Stitch disabled. 


Can I re-order trims within a video clip?
No, you will only be able to re-order video clips added. For example, if you trim out a video part in an added clip, as seen below, you will only be able to move that entire video clip, not the trims within the clip.
