Trimming video for better results?


I have a video recording of aperson in a sitting position (the camera was place in front of the person). The recording lasts for around 60 minutes. At the beginning and end of the recordings (around 10 min each) there is a second person in the video. We are only interested in the 60 minutes and not in this part in the beginning and end.

Would the result of Affectiva be different when I cut the 10 minutes at the beginning and end? Of course the easier solution would be to just run it over the whole recording without trimming…

I think you asked this on Stackoverflow ( and I have answered it there.
I will close this and mark this a duplicate.
