Force Trim - Fixed Length Video

If you configured the trim tool to restrict the duration of the video by setting a minimum and/or maximum duration you can define the startup behavior of the video editor as follows:


The configuration.trim.forceMode option determines how the video editor behaves. For this, three options are provided:

  1. always

In this mode, the composition or trim tool will always automatically be presented after opening for the user to review and adjust the length of the video.

  1. ifNeeded

In this mode, the editor will only present

  • the composition tool, if your initial composition is longer than maximumDuration or shorter than minimumDuration, or
  • the trim tool, if your initial video is longer than maximumDuration.
  1. silent

In this mode, the editor will automatically trim the video to the maximumDuration without opening any tool.
