Hi @johns1lver

 

Depending on the length of the video, you should be able to add a couple of Hi-Lights to it.

Watch out for the Hi-Light icon to turn blue.

 

For reference, you can also check: How Do HiLights Work In Quik for mobile?

 

Thanks!

Re: Changing the length of a highlight segment in Quik for the Android? 2

If you have specific portion of the clip that you want in your video, your best bet is to not use the Highlight method but to just use manual trim. Select the clip and then Trim. Once in the trim editing mode, move the slider to manual. From here you can adjust the sliders to the beginning and end points. if you want more than one portion of the video to be used, first go to manual and be sure the entire video is selected. Exit Trim and go to Split, split the file where you want the first clip to end. Go to the next video clip that was created and do this again if you need more than one extra clip to be created. Once you have all of your segments, go back and manually trim each clip as needed.

Oki Thx. It is a bit chunky. I did the Trim/split. but it does not work very well in the app it is to small everything. I hope the windows version is better, or I will go strait back to Camtasia;) Thc for helping out

@johns1lver 
Thanks for the feedback about HiLight duration, indeed for now this is all managed automatically by the Quik engine so you can't define duration yourself.
The manual trim is a good way to have what you want. Also you can try to put two HiLights next to each other so that they merge together.
Also the longer the song = the longer the video = the longer the HiLights. If the song is too short and you have many media, the engine will have to adapt the length of the HiLights and make them shorter.

Hope this helps!

Best,
