LosslessCut is a cross platform GUI tool for lossless trimming / cutting of videos using ffmpeg and electron. Great for rough processing of large video files taken from a video camera, drone, etc. Lets you quickly get rid of the useless parts. It doesn't do any decoding / encoding and is therefore very fast and has no quality loss. Also allows for taking JPEG snapshots of the video at the selected time.

Works fine if you don't need precision. Despite having two cutting methods, one for keyframes and one for "normal" cuts, it is poor at cutting exactly where you need it. I needed several fast cuts from ~100 videos, and 20 videos into the job I noticed I was losing about 1 second from clips that were 3 or 4 seconds long.

Really frustrating for my purposes.

There is NO VC-1 codec support in this software.

Needs work on precision. When I put it on the markers, it leaves in 5 second of footage I don't want. Also an option to just cut an intended section out (As in put the marker on a section I don't want, cut that part out then merge the video from there) would be nice. Otherwise it's a good bit of software that nearly hits the mark. Hope the next update uses the suggestions given.

There are some limitations:
"LosslessCut is based on Chromium and uses the HTML5 video player, not all ffmpeg supported formats will be supported directly"
this means it does not support X265/HEVC or fairly common containers like .avi or .mkv

AviDemux works better for me.
