Tool Description Type Rating Comment


AVCutty is able to capture video material from a DV camera. It saves the videos in AVI files. It also simplifies the splitting of AVI files into the different scenes. It scans the AVI files and detects the scene changes either optically or per DV date stamp. Each scene can be saved into a new AVI file. Because AVCutty does not recompress the video data, the process is lossless. Also it is possible to trim the scenes in a comfortable manner. So, AVCutty is very useful, particularly at the beginning of your video project. Optical scene detection in AVI files, cutting+trimming of scenes/AVIs, splitting+joining of AVIs, export of BMPs, writing scene/AVI index with thumbnails.

The UI is a basic but it does what it says it does well.

Would be better if could pay for software in a method other than sending cash

I don't know what the other users are talking about. I think this software is fantastic. It does exactly what it says it will do. I had a large number of AVI videos that were over an hour long each. I used the software to cut the videos into scenes and then save each scene has its own file.

I own several other video software utilities. But the other software forces me to trim each video, deleting the extra scenes, and then saving each section separately. It was taking many hours to do what AVcutty does very quickly.

AVcutty scans my files and lists each of the scenes. I then have the option of merging the scenes into a single scene and then saving the scene as a single AVI. I can work with each scene separately or I can process an entire AVI full of different scenes as different AVI files all at 1 time in a batch mode.

As for the nagware, the software will continue to process even if you do not press the buttons. However, the okay buttons must be pressed periodically in order to continue to access the software interface screen. I did not find this too troublesome and processed several hours of AVI files before I decided that the software was worth a donation. I sent a donation to the programmer using Pay Pal and within a few hours he had sent me the registration key. When I am done with my AVI files I will have processed about 60 hours worth of files when I am done. I think this is great software. It is easy to use and not complicated with a clean user interface.

Great software! Well worth a donation.

This has the potential of being good software but it shouldn't be called donateware; it should be called nag, nag, nag ware. A pop up appears with a nagware notice soon after the user starts. This makes the user click on one of 3 random buttons in order for the program to continue to work. Then the popup goes off more and more often until the program stops functioning. Finally, every time one clicks a button to continue, another nagware notice pops up and the program no longer functions. This happened to me even before I could finish my first complete task. Except for the nags, the software seemed to have the potential to work well. I quickly uninstalled this software.

This is particularly nasty nagware. During operation
every couple of minutes it suspends operation, and
pops-up window with the request for "donation" and
three buttons with delayed "clue" which button to
press before you are allowed to proceed.

Quoted from "DONATION request" window:

AVCutty is based on the principle of donation. It is
'Donationware'. This means, that if you use this software,
you have to send a small amount to the developer of this
software (that's me :-). It's your part to decide, how
much you will send.

First of all, this soft is advertised as a FREEWARE, so
it goes into false claims. Second, quoting sentence from
above "(...)if you use this software, you _have_to_ send
a small amount (...)" - no, you don't - donation is
a __voluntary__ contribution, so you may,_if_you_want_to_
gratify developer for his effort, without being restricted
by any means in using his soft (FREEware, right?).

What a joke...

Non Starter.

Whilst AVCutty did a quick and credible job of dividing an input AVI into scenes, it repeatedly failed to save those scenes as seperate files - always hanging during the creation of the second file and creating a fatal system 'please notify MS' error box.

Simply does not work.

I can't understand the problems in the last two postings. I am using this tool for some years now, never having problems with it. I seperate the scenes of my selfmade videos with it, including basic trimming of the scenes. And I am also sometimes cutting advertisements from captured tv recordings. No problem...
But note that this tool ist only for AVIs. You can't cut Mpeg2 with it!

Ease of use 7 of 10 Functionality 9 of 10 Value for money 9 of 10 Overall score 8 of 10

Having been used to using Womble to edit Mpeg's, this AVI tool, which I thought would be the same sort of thing, seems abnormally clunky and non-intuitive. My first use was to try and cut out a funny ad from a video segment obtained with VirtualDub capture. Trying to mark the beginning of the segment was a horror story, as there seemed to be no slow reverse or any reverse at all. In the meantime I had to fight the nag screen, so this not really freeware, it's totally annoying nagware.
I finally got the file segment marked after numerous attempts trying to manipulate the scene pointer with the mouse.
Wasn't sure which icons to click on, I found I had to hover for a long time over each one to see what function it had.
This took me a long time to do what Womble would have done for an Mpeg in 30 seconds.
I wrote the file to CDRW and tried playing it on a Phillips DVP-642 player, and it didn't. Not sure what the issue was with that. Possibly on a CDR it would have worked, but I am dumping this so-called editor ASAP anyway. They actually want money for it. *laugh* *choke* I personally wouldn't ask for money till the thing became slightly marketable.

Ran this tool once. On the second attempt at splitting an AVI file into shorter sequences the tool froze and my PC just hung. No chance of recovery except to reboot. Not happy with this at all.
On the use I did get out of it, Ease of use is low because it wasn't intuitive at all and the information provided on button rollover wasn't very helpfull.

This is a great little tool for editing/cutting up big avi files. I have used it to edit my dv footage and it works with 50GB+ files no problem at all.

Looking forward to the new version which supports dv capture - thus saving the need for yet another tool.
