For you who do not understanding deep knowledge of multimedia software will probably meet many difficulties when you want to cut a part of video file you have. For professional video editors, this case is not a difficult matter, but not for some people like us. In this article, I would like to show you how to cut or delete video part of the whole video in a simple and easy way.
A software that I use is Avidemux, a free and open-source video editing software, designed for simple and easy-to-use video processing and video editing.
This software or programme is written in C++ language and uses Qt for its graphical user interface. It also uses FFmpeg for its multimedia functions. Supporting by many video format, Avidemux also offers a command-line interface, and since version 2.6, the GTK port is unmaintained and discontinued which was originally used.
- Prepare video file you want to edit.
- Open Avidemux (must be installed before) and open your original video file. Note : this software support various type of video format like avi, flv, mkv, ts, mp4, ts, mov, 3gp, etc.
- Play the original file to preview your original video.
- Set “the beginning marker” by stopping video play exactly at the right position and click icon A (marked with red color).
- Drag slowly the player bar to the next position and stop at the specific point to place “the end marker”. Then click icon B.
- Final step, click “Edit – Delete” at the top menu bar. Now the specific frame of your video will removed and you can save the output file for other editing process.
As a free software, Avidemux is available and can be installed in Microsoft Windows, BSD, Linux, and Mac OS under the GNU GPL license. This program was written from scratch by Mean, but code from other people and projects has been used as well. Any patches, translations and even bug reports can be written to the developer. If you want to use Avidemux, you can visit its download page at http://avidemux.sourceforge.net/download.html.
