Zoom is one of the best video conferencing tools that lets you conduct video meetings with your friends, family members, and colleagues. Sometimes, we even record a Zoom meeting to save precious moments. In an official setting, recording a Zoom meeting can be helpful as it can be used for later reference. In case you are new to the concept and wish to know how to record a Zoom meeting on a variety of platforms, check out this post.
Now, let’s consider a situation where you have recorded an important office meeting that lasted for a few hours. You now have to make this video memo more focused. You have to trim unwanted sections (some of which might not be relevant to your team).
How would you cut or trim unwanted sections of your zoom recording so that only the essential sections can be referenced? This is where you can take the help of a screen recording tool. Screen recording software won’t just help you record a Zoom meeting but even help you with more useful tasks that we’ll discuss in this post.
