Due to this user-friendly application, even novices can easily cut segments of their videos files, without needing to re-encode them in the process
When you record an important event in your life, you might end up with a very large file that nobody has the patience to watch in its entirety. However, you can extract the most interesting scenes and save them as separate videos that can be easier to watch on any device you might choose.
SharpCut is one of the utilities that can help you achieve this task.
This application packs a user-friendly GUI and it is meant to encourage even novices to save the most exciting parts of a large clip as standalone videos.
You need to start by loading the file you want to process and there are two ways to do that: you can either drag and drop the file onto the main window, or you can manually browse to its location.
SharpCut supports several source formats, such as MP4, MKV, TS, AVI, MOV, MPEG, WEBM and OGV.
Visual method to cut videos
Unlike some other video editing tools out there, SharpCut does not require any expert skills and extracting a certain segment from your video is achieved as straightforward as it can be.
You can jump to the frame you need, then set the starting point, then navigate to the end of them scene and mark it as the ending point. You can repeat this operation multiple times for a single clip, and you will be left with a collection of nice, little scenes, each exported to its own MKV or MP4 file.
To sum things up
All in all, SharpCut might not look too impressive at first sight, yet its graphical interface is designed specifically to simplify the extraction of one or more segments from a selected video. You can even save the current project and continue it in LosslessCut, if you prefer.
