Can someone help me with editing videos without having to do a whole re-encode?

  • I have some DIVX & XViD avi videos, some of them have VBR audio in them
  • I use Full Processing Mode for video like the help file and other forums have said to use
  • I want to use VirtualDub & cut out some of the video that I don't want, + to also shrink the file size some
  • Now I'd like to save it again without being forced to re-encode the entire thing, because that can take so long, + maybe lose more video quality since it's doing another re-encode, but it won't let me!

TIA

If it's just a single video you're editing and re-saving, don't use Full Processing Mode, switch both Video and Audio to Direct Stream Copy and it'll just re-save without having to re-compress / re-encode the video.

If you're trying to maybe stitch a couple of videos together, make sure they're both using the same exact original codec settings and audio encoding setting or you'll most likely need to re-encode the final edit.



Shhh.. dont tell anyone, but we also have a private forum area with the really good stuff, see?
