Need program to edit and cut small movie bits from large movie files

Question

per

I have digitized family films and will cut out and edit these films. And finally put together all the small clips into one big file.

 

I need a very simple program to use to edit and cut small movie bits from large movie files.

 

I want to cut a large movie file into many small pieces and then save this edited files to disk.

 

Which program is recommended to use for an amateur. A simple and straightforward program without too much nonsense

Yes. It works properly and moreover - it is free! Format Factory! Recommend it.

@per I moved your previous question to the Software Chat forum since it didn't have anything to do with the thread u originally posted the question in (CyberLink PowerDirector Ultimate 18.0.2725.0).

 

Yet instead of continuing in the new topic, you again asked basically the same question in the same topic. You have even posted in Frontpage Software Discussion. 

I have merged your new question with your previous one. If you find an answer helpful, remember to upvote it.

LosslessCut aims to be the ultimate cross platform ffmpeg GUI for extremely fast and lossless operations on video, audio, subtitle and other related media files. The main feature is lossless trimming and cutting of video and audio files, which is great for saving space by rough-cutting your large video files taken from a video camera, GoPro, drone, etc. It lets you quickly extract the good parts from your videos and discard many gigabytes of data without doing a slow re-encode and thereby losing quality. Or you can add a music or subtitle track to your video without needing to encode. Everything is extremely fast because it does an almost direct data copy, fueled by the awesome ffmpeg which does all the grunt work.

I have to start by apologizing for all the mess I make. It is not on purpose 🙂

 

Thank you very much for that. Maybe these are the two programs I need. I'll try them out.

I have previously tried a few programs without success. Some will not load the files and some others are completely useless to edit with.

The programs I have tried are; AviDemux, this would not load the files. MiniTool Movie Maker; Absolutely impossible to edit with. CyberLink PowerDirector; You need to now data very well to use this. Too complicated. Wondershare; Same as CyberLink. And sorry to say that. Another program that I was recommended,! Format Factory, did not work well either.
Movavi Video Editor; Useless to edit different files out of one large file.

I just switched operating system to Windows 10 LTSC. I used Windows 7 before and then I used an excellent program called SolveigMM Video Splitter. I'm not getting this program to work now. It loads the files. But in the middle of editing, the program collapses.

It's such a simple program I'm looking for. in SolveigMM Video Splitter you simply put a point where you want to start the clip and then you put an end point. This is how you continue throughout the whole movie from which you want to take different clipsout of 

 

And when you have finished editing the entire file with many small clip, you save all these edited clips that are from the same movie file to one file. Then you have edited out many different clips of a large movie file. You put a beginning point and an end point on each clip that you want to take out of the main file and then you save all the clips in a file.

 

I'm not looking to edit one clip at a time out of a movie.  All of these programs can do that. I want to easily edit many clips from a main movie and then save all these clips together as is done in SolveigMM Video Splitter. The simplest and easiest program I have ever used to edit movies with. But which unfortunately does not work for me now
