splitting one large quicktime file into smaller ones
on Sep 28, 2009 at 11:24:58 pm

I have an hour long quicktime and I want to split it and rename all the pieces I split; is the best way to do this with trimming within quicktime? Or is there a better way in final cut?

thanks
dan

There are a lot of ways to do this in FCP. What format are you working with?

One way is to add markers, select the markers in the browser and convert them to subclips.

Or do you want actual, separate QuickTime files on your hard drive.


All the best,

Hello,

I'm working with 10 bit uncompressed quicktimes. I have recently discovered marking DV footage and creating subclips. If I compress to DV will this work?

Also down the line, I think i'll need self contained quicktimes of the subclips. Is this possible? Part of the problem is i'm not sure of the future workflow of this media.

thanks for the help,
dan

No, because there won't be any start/stop information on the recompressed media. It's looking for a date/time stamp recorded by the camera. By putting in markers you're basically doing the same thing as DV Start/Stop Detect, only manually.


All the best,

Tom

that makes sense. After I add markers manually, is there any way to get self contained quicktimes from that timeline?

You don't add the markers in the timeline, you add them to the clip in the viewer. The markers are in the browser. Select the markers and converted to subclips. You can batch export to make them into separate QT files, though I'm not sure why you'd want to do that.

All the best,

Tom

Just do it in Final Cut and lay it out in your timeline and using in and out points you can use the 'blade" too and cut the clips.
