Compatible Job Types: All

Example:

  • 00:00:10.0

  • 60
  • 12.5

Description:

Create a subclip of a particular length. This can either be a duration with a format of HH:MM:SS.S, or a decimal expressing the length of the clip in seconds. Can be combined with start_clip to create subclips in the middle of a video. If start_clip is not provided, the clip will start at the beginning of the video. Note that the actual clip length may not be perfectly exact, depending on the arrangement of keyframes within the video. Also note that clip_length is a duration and is not the timecode in the media file at which the subclip should end.
