This article explains the features and navigation of Clips to Record on Cyrano’s website


What are Clips to Record?

Clips to record are semi-completed programs, simply lacking video content. A co-worker has the ability to create all aspects of a program complete with a thumbnail, script, subject, recipients, intro clips, and outro clips and then send that to another co-worker. The latter co-worker then only needs to record a clip of themselves 


Navigate your Clips to Record

On the home page of Cyrano’s website, the clips to record tab will appear on the left side of the screen. Click on the tab and you will be able to see all of the clips to be recorded by you. However, using the Cyrano website is not the recommended method of recording video content. Using the web will infringe on your ability to preview a clip before it is sent due to the fact that local files can not be stored on websites. To maximize quality and make full use of all Cyrano features, use the Clips to Record tool on the Cyrano mobile app or use your computer with the Cyrano Chrome Plugin. For more information see Mobile App Clips to Record or Chrome Plugin information.
