I've tried a few video editing programs (just briefly as I am a beginner) and came to the following conclusion:
- The feature that I'm mostly interested in is to cut a video, to delete a few scenes, ... and then to join the video back together (maybe in a different order).
In other words I'm not 'really' editing the video, I'm just 'cutting' it a bit before putting it back together.
- AVS4YOU.com, for example, offers two different programs for video editing:
1) 'AVS Video Editor'
2) and 'AVS Video ReMaker'
- For what I'm looking for, 'AVS Video ReMaker' seems to be much better. It doesn't have lots of video editing features, ... but it allows users to cut, delete scenes and put the movie back together.
From what I have read, most video editing programs rely on 'reconversion', ... which lessens the quality of the output file/video.
'AVS Video ReMaker' doesn't use 'reconversion'. As far as I understood, .vob and .mpeg are the same thing. And 'AVS Video ReMaker' simply takes these .vob/.mpeg files, cuts them and puts them back together,
... which means the picutre quality stays is identical to the original as no real conversion takes place. Throughout the process the files stay in .vob/.mpeg.
'AVS Video Editor', on the other hand, first converts the video from .vob to .vep, ... and then again from .vep to .mpeg.
- Here's what AVS4YOU writes about 'AVS Video ReMaker': "Cut, delete unwanted parts, change scene sequence in MPEG, AVI, DVD, Blu-ray, WMV, etc. with AVS Video ReMaker. Save videos without reconversion."
Question 1: Does anyone know a similar program to 'AVS Video ReMaker' that does not use 'reconversion'? The only reason I'm NOT using 'AVS Video ReMaker' is, because the cuts in the filal video are slightly off
(compared with what you see while editing the video, ... which is annoying).
Question 2: Does anyone know of some other video editing software that would preserve the picture quality to a very high level. I want cut the videos while loosing as little picture quality (and as few
features) as possible.
Many thanks in avance,
