All features

Cuts videos from DV Camcorder and HD PVR quickly in several mouse clicks.

Supporting M2TS, TS, MP4, MOV, PS, TP, TRP, MTS, MPG, VOB; H.264 AVC, AVCHD, MPEG2, DVD etc. Especially, it is Frame Accurate!

You can observe each scene thoroughly, cut or merge segments of movies. Cut commercials out of video stream.

Especially, only small parts on start and end points will be re-encoded, the middle part will remain untouched, lossless. This gives highest speed while reserving highest video quality. So it is called 'Smart Rendering'.

No need to be worried about formats, frame rate or file sizes, the functions of video join, split and cut can be easily achieved by Smart Cutter. The video editing software allows you to edit video files in all popular formats from DV Camcorder and HD PVR.

All subtitles and audios in the movie will also be cut and saved without re-encoding.

As a video joiner, splitter and cutter, Smart Cutter has an intuitive interface and makes it easy to turn original videos into works of art. And also you can watch the video in the preview window. Smart Cutter is well worthy of having a try.

Join multiple videos and combine them into one
Split one video into several segments
Cut off the unwanted segments of your video
Smart Seek to locate any frame in movies easily and fast:

Since version 1.2.0, the long slider's seeking speed is much faster than old versions, it makes fast jumping through different scenes in the H.264 AVCHD video much easier.

This major improvement is based on our new technology 'smart seek', which was accomplished by our developers after hard optimization. Since long time ago, the mostly experienced difficulty while editing H.264 AVCHD video was: it is very hard to locate the video frame you desired in the H.264 AVCHD movie; after you dragged the mouse wheel, it usually takes too much waiting before the video scene you
wanted to be displayed.

But now, with the help of 'smart seek', you can reveiw and jump to the H.264 AVCHD video scenes as fast as you did to AVI MPEG and other 'simpler' video formats. After you found the scene you needed by the long slider, the short slider will help you to locate every single video frame efficiently. Now, You need not to click the mouse button so many times, step by step dozens(H.264 AVCHD mostly has GOP of more than 33 frames) of frames to your desired one.
Just drag the short slider, each frame will be shown continuously and smoothly. You can decide the cut point very easily and fast.

Stream Fix to ensure a correct output:

Unlike the MPEG2 video streams, the H.264 AVCHD video takes some special elements into its stream structure for playback control. If some video cutter simply chops the H.264 AVCHD video stream apart, then feeds the cut movie into some post-processing pipelines, such as transport stream re-multiplexing, Blue Ray disk authorizing; then, there may(even must) arise the problems of green glitch, mozaic, or audio/video in-sync.

The inner stream-fix function will solve such kind of problems. It was done automatically during the process of video transcoding.

Accurate grabber to capture any frame in movies:

Capture any frame in all popular video formats. Fit for professional users.

Anyone have V1.9.3, The latest version have save path bug.

"With Smart Cutter all of the original clips remain untouched, only the last GOP before the cut and the first GOP of the appended clip are reencoded"

Why should we need reencoding small parts of the video? Today it is absolutely unnecessary in the case of transport stream files! Try video to video converter, if you want real direct straem copy without the need of reencoding and without sync problems.

Smart cutter often causes serious quality errors in scene-changes and cutting points.

This tool is the only one which has allowed me to join multiple HD captures into a single file. The program strength is purely based on that, which is more than enough to be the best one out there for this specific purpose. I had a hard time looking for something useful, and tried more than one software, first of all freeware but later also trialware: h264ts cutter crashed trying to open big files (more than 8GB in size), AviDemux is a bit tricky and sometimes claims it can't handle some kind of videos or can't mux a .ts file containing only a video stream and is not frame accurate (not even when trying to split exactly on Intra frames), VideoReDo didn't open all the .ts files I wanted to join and SolveigMM Video Splitter wasn't even frame-accurate)
I have to admit this is the first time I try to do such a thing, so maybe I'm not experienced enough to comment but right now this is what I can report.
With Smart Cutter all of the original clips remain untouched, only the last GOP before the cut and the first GOP of the appended clip are reencoded, which is great because the result is brilliant, nobody can spot the transition, and the reencoded few images retain a fantastic quality, at least in my case. I have to recommend this program, although it's UI isn't great and too expensive in my opinion, but the program does very well at splitting and joining clips and is truly frame accurate.

Definitely not ready for prime time! I use the Hauppauge HD-PVR to capture 720p and 1080i TS files. The Smart Cutter program looks nice, and was reasonably easy to learn to use, BUT the resulting videos were a complete mess! The original raw video played fine using the CCCP package and media player, but after editing the file, the resulting video was full of artifacts, stutters, etc, which made it completely useless. When I used the older and simpler TS-Cutter (free) program to edit the same files, the result was a clean and playable file, which would mean there's nothing wrong with the file, just the editing program. The only problem with TS-Cutter is that it's not frame accurate, so unless you are only removing the beginning and ending of a raw video, it won't do the job. Still looking for the right program to edit H.264 videos without re-encoding.
