Windows 7: Video editing/ clipping app

Video editing/ clipping app

I'm currently using cyberdirector for doing video editing, and it's fine for the more detailed projects, but I find it bulky and difficult to use when I just want to make quick clips for future reference etc...

What I want is a simple video editing app that supports a good number of formats that will allow me to clip/cut/paste video sections together and publish quickly. (I used to use movie maker, but the live version crashes constantly)

Open to any and all suggestions on this front.

do a google search for avidemux - perfect for little quick clip clipping.

for some reason, a direct link to the page doesn't work in this forum.

in the above shot, you can select the A and B points where you want to cut, then hit delete.

and there's an 'append', where you can add new clips to the end.

the best thing is you don't have to re-transcode again, it'll use the same codecs settings as the original. just hit the 'save video' button, so no loss of quality if you stick to the same format.

only little quirk that i've noticed is that you have to add the file extension as you save it - so you have to save as 'movie.avi', for example.

Try VideoRedo TV Suite.

Also supports new WTV format (restricted to copy-freely WTV content) from Windows 7 Windows Media Center.

Thanks I will give both a look over Avidemux looks like exactly what I was after though.
It's even a small install.

Here's a link to the avidemux app: http://fixounet.********/avidemux/

And, here are some other suggestions for user friendly video cropping apps:

VirtualDubMod

Free Video Converter - Any Video Converter Free Version - convert video to any formats, avi to MPEG, avi to MP4, flv to MPG (Crops videos as well as converts to other formats.)

VideoLAN - VLC media player - Open Source Multimedia Framework and Player - (You can crop videos using VideoLAN)

I use the WLMM which is real easy and has another few nifty features. Here is a little tutorial I made: Windows Live Movie Maker - Edit Video

For lossless editing, I use this one, but that is another story. http://www.machetesoft.com/

Windows live movie maker crashes on me when attempting to edit mkv files.
It also has varying problems with mp4.
Mostly audio / video sync

I'll look at the others though.

Hmm, I never had any real problems with WLMM (except when I made a mistake). But I always convert everything (except .mov) to .wmv (with Format Factory).

Yeah, I don't like wmv as a container, I'm more fond of mkv,mp4, and mt2s. I've found wmv to require more bitrate to achieve the same levels of quality. ...plus there's embedded subs and other features for the newer containers. ..avi I have practically abandoned at this point because dark scenes always develop pixelation in avi no matter how high you crank up rates.

Maybe Camtasia Studio will help you?
