Slidesync can record the stream for later viewing. The slides will be displayed next to the recording, just like during the live event, and they will be synchronized to the recording.
Recording is on by default. It can be toggled in the Basics, or in the Live Producer, before starting the event.
Once the event is over, there is often a little bit of editing needed before a recording can be published. For example, it often happens that the stream is started before the event, and the first few seconds need to be trimmed away. Same with the end of the event, where there might be some recorded footage you want to remove. You can trim the video quite precisely within SlideSync using the Edit Recording tool.
You can also manipulate the timing of the slides by dragging the slides on the timeline. You can even replace the slideset with an updated one, to fix a typo or a layout mistake.
In the Files section, you have the option to add a bit of polish to your recorded event.
Add a custom thumbnail
By default, SlideSync shows a frame from the recording as a thumbnail when the video is not playing yet. You can upload a custom thumbnail from the File page:
Let viewers download the video file
You can see the “Publicly downloadable” toggle in the screenshot above. Note that in order to make videos recorded on SlideSync downloadable, you’ll first need to “Export” it, using the export button on the same page:
Only available for some subscriptions. Contact us if you don’t see the option and you think you need it.
