Before you begin, you must do the following:
To create a local copy of the video you want to redact, save or export the video. This way, the source file is not altered in anyway.
Start by carefully reviewing the source file, and then using either of these methods to create a local copy:
For instructions, see Saving or Exporting a Video.
Evidence Manager can redact videos only if they are in the MP4 format. Therefore, you must save or export sources files as MP4 videos.
After creating a local copy of the video file you want to redact, open this local copy in Evidence Manager. To open a video file, follow the instructions given in Opening Videos.
Evidence Manager supports only one video stream for MP4 files. That is why the MP4 plays only in one tile.
Before you can finally redact the video you opened, you must select the tile in which the video plays. Evidence Manager will redact only the elements playing in the tile you select. You can only select one tile at a time.
To select a tile for redaction:
The video opens in a single tile. Redaction menu options appear on the Evidence Manager UI.
You can choose to redact a video using one of the following methods. The method you choose depends on the elements you want to redact, how long you want for them to be redacted, and how they move around in the video.
Tutorials 54, 55, 56, and 57 describe the four methods of redaction.
For quick help on redacting elements, once the redaction menu items appear on the Evidence Manager interface, find the pencil () icon in the bottom-right corner, and click it.
