If you have some MP4 files that are too big and want to break them up into smaller files, you can actually choose to split MP4 files.

Step 2: Split MP4 files

If there are some unwanted MP4 clips, just delete them by right-clicking -> "Delete" option. If you need to re-arrange these MP4 clips, simply drag and drop clips to change the order. But don't drag one clip to another, if not, you'll split the original video clip.

This is awesome! I use this tool: to split videos on my PC but your software came very helpful for me to do the same thing on my Mac. Thanks for the help.
Misleading! This software have no option to remux only (without re-encoding), if you want to split without re-encoding I suggest to use mkvtoolnix gui, and it's free too.
How about saving without re-encoding? I don't see any option for that in the recent Filmora... This seems a bit misleading
