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.

This software cuts and joins MTS files from a camcorder and outputs an MTS file with the same characteristics (fps, Mbps) and does it very quickly. Some reviewers here found artifacts in the joins like I first did. Turning on the Whole GOP option fixes that (it is not the default setting). The user interface is NOT intuitive. It took me a good 10 minutes to work out how to slice and dice, and assemble a final file. After that, it is actually quite easy. The help file needs a re-write at Step 7 because it just doesn't make sense. I have since rewritten that step for myself in case I ever forget in future. This software saved me when I recently had to assemble a high quality MTS file from various camcorder footage. I have tried over a dozen products that don't do it this as well, or don't do this at all. Not even Premier Elements produces a better result. This was $49 well spent.

Review by Boyta on Dec 31, 2019 Version: 1.9.6 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease of use: 9/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 9/10 Overall: 9/10

Can't figure out how to use it. Couldn't even load a single video file.
Can't comment on functionality or value
I have built software for years.
I must be missing something. Tried the help file and it just didn't load any files

Review by Jim on Aug 15, 2019 Version: 1.9.5 OS: Windows 10 64-bit Ease of use: 1/10 Functionality: 1/10 Value for money: 1/10 Overall: 1/10

To complicated, I just wanted to cut out the AD's from my .TS files and not re-encode.

Review by Cynthia on Jul 28, 2019 Version: 8.2 OS: Windows 10 Ease of use: 1/10 Functionality: 1/10 Value for money: 1/10 Overall: 1/10

"only re-encode first and last gop, middle part of movie remain untouched" blablabla - no truth.
Slow - no reencoding apps cut in seconds eg. boilsoft or mp4box

Review by Kowa1 on Mar 29, 2019 Version: any OS: Windows 7 Ease of use: 1/10 Functionality: 1/10 Value for money: 1/10 Overall: 1/10

I like this software because it can *render* .ts files others (like TSDoctor or even vdub) cannot.

It's my security when TSDoctor and vdub fail and I can't edit.
It renders perfectly and the saved file is repaired.

Indeed there are system configurations where it doesn't work. I've seen it crashing on a 7-32 bits but I have it ok on my 7-64...
You have to try it before !
