Overview Page


Welcome to Getting Started with Riverside. In this video, we're going to look at the powerful Riverside editor, which allows you to export full-length clips, reels, and even lets you remove sections and set in and out points from the recordings you've done in Riverside. We're also going to show you how you can export the recordings with all the separate tracks set in a timeline to something like Adobe Premiere Pro. Once you've logged into your Riverside account, go to a studio with a recent recording, and click the View recordings button. And here you'll see all your previous episodes listed. Go into an episode, and you'll see two buttons in the top right, edit and export.
If you'd like to create clips for Tiktok or reels, or even export a full-length video for something like YouTube, use our editor, click the Edit button in the top right and you'll see you have the option to create a 9:16 vertical story or real one by one post or full length 16:9 video. Let's go to a full-length video. I

nside the editor, you can see that you and your co-hosts are automatically placed side by side. If there are certain guests or videos you'd like not to include, click the tracks button here on the left and you can uncheck the boxes for the videos you don't want. You can also choose to rearrange the videos if you'd like to swap places and you can even switch the size after you've begun creating a clip. If you'd like to create a reel, you can click the 9:16. And now you have a vertical clip ready for TikTok reels clicking the Layout button you can choose to remove any borders between the videos or you can add the gaps back and we also have a special AI version of our export meaning it will focus on the live speaker throughout the recording.


The full frame AI will put each participant that's actively talking full screen in the video, our shared AI layer will put the active speaker large in the video frame and the other participants and small picture and picture windows. And you can choose the split a which will have all the multiple participants in a side and the active speaker large here in the frame. And if you'd like you can even choose to keep the original 16:9 ratio for each video or choose to crop them in so side by side and you can round the corners of each video or leave them square.

Clicking the background button, you can choose to change the image behind the video. You can even upload your own image if you'd like by clicking the plus icon here or completely remove the background for just blank lines between the videos. And if you'd like, you can even add a custom logo on top of the video you can move the logo around after you place it and even resize it if you'd like to remove it click logo again and click the Remove button.


Once you have your layout set. Now you can adjust the in and out points and even remove sections right here in the Riverside editor. You can click and drag the beginning or endpoint and Riverside will start the exported video right here where you set the endpoint and or outpoint. If there's a section you'd like to remove from your recording, move the playhead to the section you'd like to remove.

If you're on our team's account, and you've set markers, you can even choose to move the playhead to one of those markers, and then click the Split command. Once you split these clips, you now have an in and out point for each side of the clip and you can drag those to exactly where you need them. When you export this video Riverside will only include the highlighted purple sections, anything grayed out will not be included in the final recording.


If you move the playhead to the end of one clip and preview it you'll see that during playback, it will skip from this section to that section and you won't have that removed section included for each section. You can also type in the time code to get the exact place you want and in and outpoint if there's a highlighted section you'd like to remove completely, click the section and then delete. If you'd like to start over with the editor timeline, just click Reset timeline. Once you've removed all the sections and set the in and out points, click the export button in the top right. You can choose Video Quality up to 4K if you recorded in that resolution, you can normalize audio levels, enabling that toggle will try to make all the volume even across all of your guests. So if some guests had a lower volume than others, it will raise those and lower those who had a higher volume. If there was any background noise in the recording, you can try to remove that here on export. And you can choose to remove the Riverside watermark from your exported clip.

Then when you're ready, click Export. It will take a few minutes to process your clip and then you'll get an email when it's ready to download back on the recordings page. For this episode, you'll see that all the clips that we've edited in the past are still available to download. I can click the three dots on any of these clips, click Publish, and I can send it to something like Spotify or a podcast host like Transistor. I can download this clip again, preview it, rename it, duplicate it, or I can copy the ID if I need help from support. You can also delete this clip if you no longer need it. Saving these clips is a great way to create multiple short reels for tik tok or Instagram and then you can download them in the future and refer back to them. If you'd like to use a third party video editor like Adobe Premiere, you can choose the export option on the recordings page.


To export to Adobe Premiere, click the export button on a recordings page and then select Adobe Premiere Pro. From here you can choose all the files you'd like to include in the downloaded zip file.

Once your premiere export is ready to download, it will download a zip file to your computer double click the zip file and it will expand into a folder including all of the video and audio files plus an important XML file.

,This XML file can be opened in Adobe Premiere Pro, and all of your video and audio tracks will be laid out in a sequence all sync together. To import that let's create a new project in Adobe Premiere. I'm not going to select any media right now. We'll just call this a test project and hit create. Now that I'm in my blank premier project, I'll go to file and then click Import. Now navigate to that folder that I just unzipped. Choose the XML file and click Import. You'll see now all the files are already imported into my Premiere project. And there's an included sequence where if I double click all of the files, including the video files for each participant, and uncompressed WAV audio, everything is laid out all in sync together, and now I can edit it however I'd like.
