What is a bin clip and how do I create one?

Bin Clip Overview

Core provides the ability to create bin clips by allowing the user to mark in / out points along the timeline of an asset. On saving the bin clip to a selected bin, the whole asset is replicated with the new in / out points saved (inside the bin, the Text view display option will show these new in / out points). When a user downloads the bin clip from within the bin, only the section of the asset between the in / out points will be downloaded. The user can add text in the clip’s Comments field (and click Save) to identify individual bin clips.  

Create a New Bin Clip from an Asset (using the Simple Player)

Create a new bin (or select an existing one) to save your new bin clips into. Click on your chosen asset to open its asset details page.

  1. Select the Simple Player tab
  2. As the asset plays, the play head marker progresses along the grey timeline
  3. To start creating new bin clips drag and drop the Mark IN and Mark OUT icons to select the beginning and end of your new bin clip
  4. Save the bin clip in your selected bin by clicking Save clip to selected bin with in/out markers
  5. Alternatively, send the bin clip to your My Downloads page by clicking Add to selected User Downloads

To create additional bin clips, repeat the above process until complete. Now go to your selected bin to preview and manage your new bin clips

Note: for frame-accurate bin clip creation with advanced controls, we recommend that the Advanced Player is used. See the Create a New Bin Clip from an Asset (using the Advanced Player) step below.
