The entire functionality of this tool can be easily deduced from its name – it allows you to extract portions from your video files and join several video files together for free. Both functions support the most popular video file formats, such as AVI, WMV, MPEG, MP4, MOV, FLV, and others. Besides, the program is so easy to use that even beginners can enjoy it without complications.
The main program window is very intuitive and is divided into two sections, one for the cutter function and another one for the joiner function. When you use the cutter function, you just need to add a source video file, select the start and end points of the portion you want to extract, and start the process. You have special controls that help you set those points, though you can always adjust them manually, with millisecond precision.
When you use the joiner function, on the other hand, all you need to do is add all your source video files in the desired order and start the process. There is also a button to remove any wrong source file from your list with one click. Whether you are using the cutter function or the joiner function of the program, you can select between two processing modes – direct and indirect. As its name suggests, the direct mode processes your video files directly, without applying any compression method. Thus, this is the fastest method. The indirect method, on the other hand, allows you to select the output video format, its quality, its resolution and its frame rate, as well as the output audio quality and the sampling rate. Of course, this method is slower, as it involves video compression.
Obviously, there are some considerations you need to take into account before selecting one processing method over the other. For example, you can only join video files in the same format when using the direct method. On the other hand, if you use the cutter function without specifying the start and end points and selecting the indirect method, you can use the program as a basic video converter as well.
All in all, Free Video Cutter Joiner is a simple yet powerful application that allows you to both to cut and join video files in an easy and fast way. If you are a beginner, I would recommend you to use the direct processing method; otherwise you can opt for the indirect method to take full advantage of the program capabilities.
