All features


Limitations:

Since it's a alpha version and I really only look at it from time to time it has some major shortcomings.
It only properly supports progressive, constant frame rate H.264 content
it has an ugly user-interface
it does not come with any bells&whistles
x264 encoding is very rudimentary (no user choice, always crf 21 encode)
ignores subtitles if present
Windows OS only atm. (mainly because Avisynth is used for decoding and preview; in theory ffmpeg could be used as alternative so porting to Linux&Co should be possible)


Here's a general overview how MKVCutter works:

analyze content with MKVInfo (to get the key frame positions)
analyze content with MediaInfo (to get some general data needed for audio reencoding and preview)
create AvisynthSkript to preview the content (simple script that calls FFVideoSource on the input)
let user set which parts of the content he wants
create audio and video cut lists for mkvmerge, create trim calls
let user set the output name and the temp folder
call mkvmerge with the video cut lists to create a bunch of temporary files (here the cuts are always on key frames)
analyze one of the not reencoded parts with h264_parse to improve compatibility
create avisynth scripts using the trim calls and LWLibAVSource to decode the GOPs that need reencoding (smart rendering)
create x264 call to reencode the content provided by the avisynth scripts
call x264 to reencode
when all GOPs that need to be reencoded are reencoded, call mkvmerge to cut the audio (here attachments, subtitles&co do not get disabled any therefore should still be available)
merge the new audio video and all the reencoded and kept GOPs

Would be nice if you could actually find the mkv cutter gui or whatever to initiate the program as it is not in the zip file after extraction. Useless tool without it!

This is a really fantastic tool. Finally an easy and accurate way to trim MKV files outside of MKVToolNix, which I could never trim the way I wanted before. It was never accurate. I've never had a problem with it at all but is this not being updated anymore? It would be a real shame if that was the case.

Thank you for this!

Latest version 20170625 has problems cutting and merging videos encoded with H.265. The description only mentions H.264, but MKV Cutter does read and play H.265 videos. Cutting and merging H.265 is hit or miss, and the program crashes every time.
