Free Video Cutter Joiner

Free Video Cutter Joiner 11.0

Free
Remove fragments from videos or merge multiple videos together
Edit video files by cutting away the unwanted parts from them or joining files together. The tool works with MOV, MP4, AVI, FLV, VOB, WMV, 3GP and other formats.

The easiest way of cutting a video file into accurate fragments and merge video files of equal or different formats into a new larger file is by using Free Video Cutter Joiner. This tiny free tool has been designed with the standard home user in mind – no complicated menus or editing tools, just the settings you need to decide on the output format of your cut or newly joined video file.

The program’s interface is as simple as its functionality. It comes in a small interface with two tabs – one for cutting and another other for merging video files. Both processes work in nearly the same way, which makes the whole tool extremely easy to understand and practically free of any kind of learning curve.

The video cutting option includes a convenient video player where you can choose the right start and ending points intuitively, though you can always input the exact starting and ending times for down-to-the-millisecond accurate cutting points. Once you’ve chosen the exact fragment you with to extract, a settings window will open offering you two cutting profiles – a direct cut and an indirect cut. The former is more suitable if you want the output file to preserve the original video and audio formats, saving you the nuisance of a re-encoding process and guaranteeing that there’ll be no quality loss whatsoever. The latter profile is great for conversion processes – it necessarily requires a re-encoding process and may take a bit longer, especially with big files. This second type of cutting process allows you to choose the output video format, quality, size, and frame rate, as well as the sample rate of the soundtrack.

The merging or joining process works in a remarkably similar fashion. Here you’re asked to select the files you wish to join and once you’ve added all to the list will open a nearly exact settings window with the same two profiles explained above. Again, if all the files you wish to join share the same video format, you can choose the Direct Join option to avoid re-encoding and any loss of quality, or you can choose the Indirect Join profile to merge video files in different formats or to convert them to a completely different one.

Both processes are pretty fast and produce the expected results. The program cuts only one video file at a time and does not accept any kind of batch processes for any of the actions it performs. Except for this minor drawback, Free Video Cutter Joiner is an excellent tool for quick and accurate video cutting and merging for those in search of a straight-to-the-point tool.
