How to trim a local recording before converting?


I have accidentally left my zoom meeting running and recording over night.  Now my local recording ".zoom" file is over 4GB and the conversion process will take hours.  Is there anyway I can edit the file first and remove all of the unwanted recording prior to converting?

Unfortunately, you cannot edit the unconverted, raw video footage. You will need to convert the recording to then be able to edit it. 


Hope that helps and please make sure to mark the solution as accepted if this information is what you needed.


What format is the raw lossless footage in?  Surely there has to be an editor out there that can edit it. 


A trim feature used to be available on the cloud version.  Is there a process in the ztscoder.exe where we can specify a start and end timestamp to convert basically reproducing the trim cloud feature?
