And I think everybody piled in with the usual
suggestions of Kdenlive,
etc. But you might be better off with a more simple, dedicated tool such
as Avidemux, or Vidcutter:
As I told Carlos, I couldn't get Vidcutter to work at all, while so far I've
been unable to get Avidemux to feign the same quality as the source in recode
mode required to get frame accurate cuts, or write out in a reasonable time,
less than 2-3 times the length of the original. Avidemux took several hours to
reduce a 29 minute original to 20 minutes sans commercials.
I downloaded vidcutter this afternoon, and now I told it to load a
video. There is a help for keyboard shortcuts, where it says that the
arrows move one frame. Well, it only happens when the mouse is on the
timeline strip. Similarly with the mouse wheel. But it only moves
forward! I can not select the point I want. I move the mouse holding the
button to the point I want, and on release, it jumps several minutes to
In fact the procedure is to click on the time numbers and edit them.
With the seconds highlighted, the keyboard moves the second up or down,
from 0 to 60, not going over to the next minute.
So, I generated and saved a clip. I did it wrong, it contains the
commercial instead of the movie. But only the sound, no images!
Obviously, a video editor that generates no video is useless.
