Cropping a file requires bookmarks to be set at the start &/or end of the parts you want to keep so the option is not selectable if you don't have any bookmarks set.Hi just seen this and tried to have a play with it but on webif I select media then the file I want to work with pressing the red button then I select opt and the menu window appears but I can’t select it
They do different jobs, so it depends what you want to do. Read up on them! The crop function is not dependent on either, it just needs some bookmarks to define the crop start and end points - how the bookmarks get there is up to you.Thanks for the quick reply of the two tools you mention can you recommend one over the other ?
It seems to me that to ensure not losing anything wanted between the bookmark and the I-frame, the end of a removed section should use the I-frame before the bookmark, and the end of a kept section should use the I-frame after.I should point out that frame accurate editing is not really possible anyway, as nicesplice will adjust the cut points to the nearest I-frame to try and minimise picture corruption. These are usually every second or so, but they are often also on significant scene changes, which is usually where you want to cut There often is still a few frames corruption just before a cut which I need to investigate sometime, but locking to I-frames keeps it clean at the start of a new section at least.
It is a while since I looked at the code but I think it does do thisIt seems to me that to ensure not losing anything wanted between the bookmark and the I-frame, the end of a removed section should use the I-frame before the bookmark, and the end of a kept section should use the I-frame after.
Does it in fact do this, or is it the I-frame after each time?
