Creating a Node and Connecting Nodes

The node map is the main area of the Kaltura Interactive Videos editor. This is where you build out the structure of your interactive project. All projects begin with an empty start node that is ready to accept media.

  2. Begin building out your project layout by clicking and dragging empty nodes onto the node map.
  3. Hover over the right-hand side of each node and drag the arrow to the node or nodes it should connect to.
    You can connect the node to any other node on the node map, even itself! You can also create multiple connections from one node.
  4. Save the project.
