An easier QuickTime Pro file splitting technique
Authored by: regulus on Apr 19, '07 12:39:06PM
I always found MPEG Streamclip easier to use than quicktime... it's free so you don't even need quicktime "pro". It has better fast forward and rewind capabilities making it easier to get to where you need to be. The i and o keys work for setting in and out points. There's many more export options and it has a batch window so you can set up a bunch of edits and then run them all at once. It's much better and it's free... you can't beat that. And no, I do not work for them.

An easier QuickTime Pro file splitting technique

I'll endorse MPEG Streamclip a second time - it's an amazing application. I'd specifically use it over QTP (if it weren't for Final Cut Express) because of its more precise timecode display, but that's to say nothing of Streamclip's excellent file support and exporter settings (for free!).

Another very obvious note about using the "I" and "O" shortcut keys as well - pressing O simply selects from the starting marker (you don't need to press I first to use O).

And if anything, this original hint is a handy way to visualize where you're cropping.
