Making a video
« on: Tue Jul 18, 2017 - 10:10:44 »
I'd like to take a portion of this video - from 4:10 to 4:16 and lift it out for a separate video to post on twitter. Does anyone here have experience in doing that type of thing, and how would I go about it?

I could do it with Final Cut Pro on my Mac, but that's not much help to you here. I also use Sony Vegas Pro on my PC and have used a variety of other freeware video editors.

Lightworks is a good choice, you should be able to make the clip you want and add transitions fore and aft to make the clip look professional.
It has a free version which should do what you need, you can get it here.  https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_lwks&view=download&Itemid=206


If you're not too concerned with transitions for your clip, Avidemux is also a good choice and may be simpler to use.

Just scroll down to your specific OS and click the Fosshub link and then get the download from Fosshub (Fosshub is a downloader that many services use to free up bandwidth on their sites, it's safe)

Thank you so much, Alan! This should work. As long as I have step-by-step instructions, I can usually handle it.

Thanks for the compliment Red  ::smile::


I forgot to mention, if you don't already have this video in your possession and it's a YouTube video, you'll need to capture the video from YouTube, I use a little app called 4K Downloader for grabbing YouTube videos for my Granddaughters tablet, works quite well.

So I tried out the two free apps I linked above, Lightworks seemed to work well but it may be a bit of a challenge if you've never done any video editing before. I made the clip without too much difficulty but the audio and video were out of synch quite a bit so rather than try redo the clip with delays in the audio track I just tried the other app; avidemux. It's quite a bit easier to use and the clip I made had the audio and video synced well.

I now have a 6 second, 831kb video that will tuck nicely into an email if anyone is interested.
