Creating versions in the Panopto Editor (new in 4.0)

The manage version feature lets you present the same session with different edits that can be distributed to viewers.

For example, if you had a seminar that was split into two halves (for instance, part 1 and part 2) you can use this feature to create a link with only the first part, and a separate link (version) to the second part.

These will appear as individual links in the Panopto Webui.

Important note: To use this feature, you must create a new version first, then edit and save this version. 

Click the drop down where it says default


Select Manage Versions


Click New to create a new Edit (useful for creating smaller sections of a long recording)


Type in a name and click OK


Select "New" and click OK


Click OK on the prompt to change versions (you may receive and additional prompt from your browser)


Any changes that are made will be saved to the new version and not the default


Insert / Edit Captions (new in 4.0)

Now you manually type in a caption stream for your recordings right from the editor. To do this, click on the captions tab - start typing in the text box - press ENTER when you want to add your captions. After saving and committing the captions, these will now be visible in the captions tab in the viewer

*Note: this can also be used to edit captions from a 3rd party vendor
