RagingBuddhist (65) In cases where the bitrate makes a file size incredibly high, I like to re-rip videos to bring it down to something more reasonable. I've also taken scenes and cropped them to better center the action.

For those that don't know how to edit video but would like to, I recommend checking out Tmpgenc 4.0 Xpress. I also use other programs, but it's by far the easiest to use as it has a fairly intuitive interface. It wasn't cheap ($99US), but I've never regretted the purchase.

Hey RB
I was one of the:
'I'd like to but don't know how' ... simplyfied..

My main thing is to edit some maybe 1-1,5 Gb videos and grab a scene that's like 300 Mb and delete the rest - tried some freeware - but it seems to take forever and skipped it...

Is this Tmpgenc 4.0 Express easy to use and does it wotk somewhat fast - if so, guess in the long run the $ 99 is well spend....

Colm4 (10) I use AVS Video converter and edit nearly every single movie I download. Sometimes just removing a few seconds from the beginning.
It's a bit of work but I want a scene exactly the way I want it to be.

RagingBuddhist (65) REPLY TO #2 - Denner :

You have to understand that calling it easy might be subjective. I'm no rocket scientist and I figured it out, so... I think pretty much anyone can at least do the basics with this program.

Once the program is open, you click on the Source tab and drag and drop the file to open it. Then, to cut a scene out, you go to the Cut-Edit tab. That opens a window with a slider you can use to jump to the beginning and end of the clip you want. It also has a player in it where you can, among other things, jump frame by frame to get the exact starting and stopping points you want. Click OK, go to the Format tab, choose the output file type you want (wmv, avi, mpg, etc.) Then, on to the Encode tab where you can preview what you've done before creating the final product.

All that might look complicated in print but, again, I think it's as easy as editting gets. But, as far as speed goes, video editting isn't fast - especially with high bitrate outputs. It's also heavy on system resources, so a powerful CPU and a good amount of RAM is advised.

There is a trial version, good for 14 days. The trial version also puts a watermark on the finished product. I didn't bother with it because, at the time, I was looking for an editor that would do fade-in/fade-outs and this has it. I just jumped right in. You can check it out here: http://tmpgenc.pegasys-inc.com/en/product/te4xp.html

Thanks a lot for this ...

I'll go for the trial version first - no matter the watermarks - then I'll get the idea and....

Monahan (42) REPLY TO #4 - RagingBuddhist :

Thanks a million RB.

I use the clunky windows WMV editor. (Or, rather, I once used it but stopped.) The editor was very clumsy and error-prone and the quality of the end product was reduced. So my stash is loaded with great scenes that have a whole lot of crap that I'd like to edit out just as I used to do back in the old VCR videotape days.

I'm doing as Denner is, downloading the trial to make sure it's Monahan-proof.

RagingBuddhist (65) REPLY TO #6 - Monahan :

You're welcome, too. Just be aware that no re-encode is ever as good as the original. I've found that keeping the bitrate on your output as close as possible to the original helps minimize the loss. I usually output to divx or avi where you have to choose the advanced mode to be able to select the bitrate. As with Denner, I'd like to know how it works for you too.

slutty (111) I edit some of the bigger files I download to take out action I don't really care for and make the file size more manegeable sometimes. I use Cyberlink Powerdirector, which is not free, but I edit home videos and stuff too and I find it robust enough and relatively easy to use. I think it is around $100.

And Denner, encoding speed is based primarily on your processor/graphics card, although I have found that Powerdirector works faster on my computer than Adobe Premiere (which is terrible, no one should buy this - has audio sync problems) and Windows Movie Maker. I haven't used any Tmpeg products since college, so can't compare the relative speeds of PD to the product RB is using.

Drooler (220) Yes, just for personal use. I've used MovieMaker that came with my XP box, and I've used the DivX Author, which I plunked down $20 for. The former is easier to use -- once it FINALLY cuts the vid into segments, which takes forever -- but it has a limited number of preset dimensions and bitrates.

That's when I turn to the DivX author, which is quite a different kind of software. Hard to learn how to use, to me at least, but faster in getting things done once you do. But the damn player seems to have playback problems in spite of my having the latest codecs and versions and such. Funny how they play OK in Windows Media player.

I've now got a pretty sizable collection of short and naughty clips. But they're a pain to make.

turboshaft (24) I'd like to but I simply don't have the time or the patience to de-douchebag the countless videos in my collection that lose focus of the people who are actually in front of the camera not the snickering drooling horn dogs (no offense, Drooler) off to the side.

What I'd would really love to do is get the raw footage and edit that down. I bet I could make a far more enjoyable or at least faster paced cut without all the bullshit I normally sit through. I'm an impatient guy and I get it already; she's stripping but she eventually needs to get fully naked and cut down on all the "ooos" and "ahhs" poses. I can fantasize pretty well on my own and a lot of these girls are probably nursing hangovers or coming down from some pretty mean highs so they don't need to act as if they are having their best orgasm ever, especially multiple times in the same video.

Oh, and one more thing: whoever edits hardcore videos, please--I beg of you!--stop intercutting with a shot of the dude's face in pure ecstasy/agony (it's kinda hard to tell) as he launches his fireworks show, okay? You don't need to show me him whacking his way to victory for five minutes either but I don't need his contorting facial expression to 'get' the scene. Though the female orgasm may be a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma guys' orgasms are not that hard to figure out when you see them onscreen, so get rid of his fucking face shots.

Jeffrey99 (29) About the most editing I've ever done is joining files together.

I just don't care enough to take the time to edit what parts out of the video that I don't like. Instead what I normally do is fast forward to the part(s) I want.

I've done editing before of video I've captured form TV or 360, so I've got experience doing it. Just feel it's too much of a hassle and time consuming without some nice ($$) software. Using the software I've used, the new video never looks as good as the original.

mbaya (364) REPLY TO #10 - Drooler :

Hi Drooler,
I also use DIVX Author. I found it a pain at first, but now that I have the hang of it, I really like it. The videos don't degrade much. I play them on WMV media player and on VLC media player. They play just fine on my WD media player hooked up to HD TV. I cut very long videos, especially ones with huge file sizes.

redrum (1) Thank you Raging Buddhist for the great info. I've been a long time porn dog for years and have become very picky about what I download, the material really has to trip my trigger and then I will download and edit. I have been using Nero9 and love the results when the program works right. I lose audio part way thru the finished DVD? I have contacted Nero and they simply blame my computer even though I have used the program on various computers and have had the same problems. I believe it is a codec problem that Nero doesn't want to address. So I will try your suggestion Raging Buddhist and happy porn wallowing to all! redrum

You're very welcome. I can add that, if you want to make DVDs, Tmpgenc also has a product called Authoring Works 4. I've never tried it, but it appears to be laid out a lot like 4.0 Xpress, with lots of large buttons and tabs to take you through the steps to create your finished product. The reviews I've seen are very favorable. Here's the link to check it out - also with a free trial available. http://tmpgenc.pegasys-inc.com/en/product/taw4.html

Wittyguy (105) Just wanted to say thanks to all who chipped in with video editor ideas / recommendations. I edit some videos, mostly HC stuff where half the damn video is just the girl dancing around in her underwear ... I don't need 500mb of that consuming my drives.

dalars (1) Well it is good to hear that there are others out there that edit their videos. Everthing I watch has been edited down. I totally remake the video, repeating shots I like, taking out the crap (which is a lot)
I have a full Final Cut HD system, so I am fortunate, but the best free editor which is pretty good and fast is MOVICA.
It's a free download.
