00:01 --> 00:07
In this lesson, we're excited to dive into the different clip inputs available in SkillGround 

00:07 --> 00:13
and how to edit them. Let's have a look!SkillGround clips come in two varieties:  

00:13 --> 00:20
standard clips and clips with input fields. Standard clips are fixed, meaning that the content  

00:20 --> 00:26
in the clip is locked. Clips with input fields, on the other hand, enable you to edit specific  

00:26 --> 00:32
aspects of the content to suit your needs. To search based on clip inputs, use the filter  

00:32 --> 00:38
dropdown at the top of the clip library. The five clip inputs we currently offer are Icon,  

00:38 --> 00:45
Image, Logo, Percentage, and Text. Icon, Image and Logo Inputs allow you  

00:45 --> 00:51
to enhance animations with pictures. Where Icons are suites for precise communication  

00:51 --> 00:57
like comparing apples to orangles. Images are great for adding presentation slides, screen  

00:57 --> 01:05
shots and profile pictures and Logos are scenes that are specifically created for logo placement. 

01:05 --> 01:10
Percentage Inputs empower you to manipulate data by adjusting percentage parameters,  

01:10 --> 01:16
such as setting a loading bar to reach 60%.Last but not least, our Text Inputs  

01:16 --> 01:21
grant you the ability to change messaging in various text fields. 

01:21 --> 01:26
It's important to note that clips aren't restricted to a single input; they can contain  

01:26 --> 01:32
multiple of either the same or different inputs. When you add one of these clip into the timeline,  

01:32 --> 01:38
a bolt icon appear, displaying the number of inputs it contains. Simply click on the clip  

01:38 --> 01:44
to reveal these inputs in the fine edit panel.Leaving fields blank will result in the clip using  

01:44 --> 01:51
the placeholder content seen in the clip preview.All image-based inputs support PNG and JPG  

01:51 --> 01:57
files for these fields, with recommended file resolutions provided where needed. 

01:57 --> 02:02
When filling in a text input, refer to the character limit at the field's top right to  

02:02 --> 02:08
know the maximum number of characters allowed.Percentage inputs come in the form of sliders,  

02:08 --> 02:12
which can be adjusted by dragging the handle to the desired value. 

02:12 --> 02:19
Finally, note that modifications to input fields don't update in real-time, meaning changes won't  

02:19 --> 02:24
be instantly visible in the preview player. To see these changes, you can either select "render  

02:24 --> 02:30
clip" underneath the clip input fields and the modifications you’ve made to the clip will process  

02:30 --> 02:35
in the background as you continue to edit your video. This can take anywhere from around a minute  

02:35 --> 02:41
to half an hour depending on the complexity of the clip and how many users are currently editing. 

02:41 --> 02:45
If you don’t feel the need to render a preview of each individual clip,  

02:46 --> 02:50
don’t worry; just keep on working, and once you’re done and want to export the video,  

02:50 --> 02:59
our render engine will incorporate your requested adjustments, in all clips, into the final video.
