All features

During films or series, TV channels often display a logo on the corner of the screen, and this logo generally disappears during commercials. Therefore, you just have to isolate sequences with the logo to clean the movie.

Of course, the tool has all the necessary functions to manually adjust the sequence on a frame-by-frame basis.

The sequences are saved in the input format (no reencoding), therefore it's very fast. To reencode, you'll have to use another tool (there are a lot available on the web).

The logos can be stored as presets to be automatically reused each time you process a movie from the same channel.

Review by Ratter on Jul 7, 2017 Version: 1.6.0 OS: Windows 7 Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 10/10

Once learnt there's no reason why saved clips should not be ad frame free.

Always move forward one step from start and one step back from end leaves clips ad free.

From here you can dump the original recording saving space on your htpc or other device.

Personally I find it better than comskip or cutterman and quicker prior to encoding for other devices.

i use smart cutter too , videpub its good if you want see a recorded program without comercials. but if you want keep it for later use maybe not, because between cuts you dont get a clear cut, like you get with smart cutter.

videopub its amazing cutting out commercials almost perfect.

Review by godai on Sep 19, 2015 Version: 1.3.1 OS: Windows 10 64-bit Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 10/10

I've been using this software for a little under a year mainly for cutting and disposing of commercials and extras at the beginning and end of recorded tv programs. Although the learning curve was not completely flat, I quickly switched from using smart cutter as my primary commercial cutting tool. Although I find on occasions I still need to use smart cutter, this little gem saves me time and frustration. One this it has is a logo capture feature, that it uses to scan the recording for commercials and does suggested cuts. This is truly a fantastic tool.
