Serialization of Video Segments

VideoEditor SDK for React Native supports serialization and deserialization of the individual video segments of a video composition, allowing your users to save and revise their work at any time.

Enable Serialization#

To use the serialization feature for video segments, you first need to enable this option within the configuration.

Process Serialization data#

Once the editor has exported the video successfully, the VideoEditorResult also contains the segments as well as the videoSize that you can further process. The segments represent all of the composition parts. In order to reuse the segments you need to save them in a persistent location. The videoSize embodies the size of the initial video and is needed to restore the state.

Once processed, you need to release the VideoEditorResult using the VideoEditorResult.release() function. This will remove the temporary resources.

The next section explains how to restore the editor state by deserializing these settings.
