Great Suggestion! I have found this feature in the Instant cutter mode, you can check the details: I hope the can add this feature to Full Feature mode soon.
Do I really have to manually export each cut after making them? Why on Earth would you not facilitate exporting each cut as an individual file? That's a deal breaker for me.
Thanks. Not what i asked, but what I wanted.
Back to making "Fun with Flags" for you I guess huh XD
there is an undo button so I recommend just using that. Also splitting doesn't create a gap in the footage (with a few exceptions that normally depend on the advanced settings for things like, e.g. the the entry timing for text), so unless you're switching things around and what to make it easier to keep things together, then you probably don't need to bother. I do subs using text fairly often, so i have a habit of doing it anyway.
Can you have a gap in your footage?
After you split, can you put the two parts of the video back together again? Also, does it make a difference?
Thanks for the tips... Is there a good tool that simply automatically splits One clip of X Minutes into Y number of clips of say One Minute each without anything manually needed to be chosen or trimmed? So, cut a 10 minute video into ten 1-minute videos or five 2-minute clips just based on one setting and no manual trimming. Thanks!
How do I cut a long part of the video?
why is it that when I cut the video at each cut it will replay the video over and over again
