How to Use the Video Snippet Tool

Accessing the Snippet Tool:
- When creating a workflow, ensure that you select "snippets" as the action. This step is crucial for accessing the snippet tool.

Navigating to View Contents:
- After setting up your workflow, go to the "View Contents" page.

Creating Snippets:
- On this page, locate and click the button labeled "Create Snippets."

Using the Snippet Tool:
- On the left, you'll see the original video, and on the right, you'll find the generated snippets.

Default Snippet Duration:
- Repurpose automatically generates a 55-second snippet, but this can be adjusted according to your preference.

Customizing Snippet Duration:
- Manually adjust the snippet duration by either typing in a specific duration or using the provided controls.

Adding Titles:
- Give each snippet a descriptive title, relevant to the content it represents.

Playing Snippets:
- Use the "Play Snippet" feature, which allows you to preview a snippet by playing it from start to end.

Watching and Creating Snippets:
- You can watch the video and, while it's playing, pause it at a specific spot. Pressing the X key will create a snippet at that exact point.

Reviewing and Editing Snippets:
- Review, edit, or delete specific clips within the snippet tool.

Updating Snippets:
- Clicking "Update Snippets" will display the entire list of clips for a comprehensive review.

Adjusting Default Snippet Duration:
- Go to workflow settings, where you have the option to modify the default snippet duration to better suit your needs.

Now you can use the snippet tool to efficiently repurpose your videos.
