Portable Simple Video Cutter 0.25.0
Assume you have dozens of files and hours of video footage (videos from your vacations, material copied from your action camera or a drone etc.). Only a small fraction of this material is usually worth saving.
So you want to go over everything and pull the most interesting/best sections into separate videos? (and store them in your archive or publish on YouTube, TikTok etc.). This is when the video-cutter-simple utility comes in handy.
It allows you to easily go through your films, preview them, and extract the bits you want into separate video files. The primary objective is to make this procedure as efficient as feasible.
The most correct name in the software world is Simple Video Cutter Portable. This small program allows you to cut films in the most time-efficient and straightforward way imaginable. It would be extremely useful for people who need to handle a large number of clips in a short amount of time.
Works with FFmpeg
With the help of the powerful FFmpeg, Simple Video Cutter removes chunks of videos. The program allows a straight installation for FFmpeg (no worries…included) it’s to save you time.
Queue tasks to avoid idle times
To start the app, drag & drop clips into the playback area. To isolate a video portion, place markers on specific frames. Set Start while a clip is playing to add the first selection marker to the timeline bar. The component that is extracted is determined by landing the second marker. You can play that selected area, clear the selection, and zoom in and out of the timeline.
If you don’t feel very accurate adding markers in full playback, you can slow everything down to a frame. Click on the Next Frame button to roll the frames at your pace and mark the cuts with utmost precision.
Recoding or lossless
The application will give you a choice of cutting types before getting to the choppy part. One can opt for a lossless cut, which keeps the quality of the original file, or recoding, which, unlike lossless, can cut between keyframes but is slower and is dependent on the machine’s capabilities. In this scenario, lossless appears to be the best option.
To conclude, Simple Video Cutter was designed with a single purpose in mind, and that is trimming videos down as quickly and as simply as possible. In essence, the utility is a workhorse, but it can also be precise.
