    start_clip

    start_clip:String

    Parent: outputs

    Valid Values: A timecode (HH:MM:SS.S), or a positive number representing a number of seconds

    {
      "input": "s3://zencodertesting/test.mov",
      "outputs": [

    clip_length

    clip_length:String

    API Versions: V1, V2

    Parent: outputs

    Valid Values: A duration in the format of HH:MM:SS.S or a positive number representing a number of seconds

    Compatible Job Types: All

    Example:

    • 00:00:10.0
    • 01:31:08.3
    • 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.

    {
      "input": "s3://zencodertesting/test.mov",
      "outputs": [
        {
          "clip_length": "00:00:10.0"
        }
      ]
    }
