Swing Video Editing Question - Mac users

7 posts in this topic

Q for Mac users. I don't have my Casio camera with me, just the SD card and I usually use it to clip videos - it's so easy. iMovie is a pain in my a$$. Any simple app recommendations to clip the beginning and end of videos? I can use a screen capture app, but mine seems to make the video more blurry. I don't want to use an internet app. Looking for a desk/lap top app. Thanks in advance.

Update:

I know there's QT 7 Pro - but is it worth $30? Doesn't iMovie do everything QT 7 Pro does?

We're way, way beyond using QT 7 Pro. Just open it in QuickTime Player and hit cmd-t and Trim the video yourself. It'll save it as an MP4 file but it's more like a wrapper, so the quality loss should be negligible.

It creates a self-contained file, too, so you can throw away the original.

Quicktime's trim feature will do it, but you do have to save the video separately, you can't just edit it in place (as far as I know).

Cr@p, all this time I've been wasting in iMovie. Bleeehhh. :mad:

OK, I'm a video dumb dumb - anything else I need to know to bring me up to 2013? I haven't upgraded to Mavericks yet.

Question on vid files for the site?  I haven't uploaded camera videos to the site, just wanted to ask which file formats will work?

Thanks
