OSX equivalent to VDub for Saving Clips?

Postby dokool » Fri Oct 06, 2006 7:53 am

So, in VirtualDub, you can just select the in-point and out-point of a video, choose the compression, etc, and save just that selection. With Quicktime, you have to copy the segment, create a new video, paste it, and then save it.

I'm looking for something a little faster - I'm trying to grab various clips from my AMV connection, so whatever it is will have to handle the usual assortment of codecs. Suggestions would be incredibly appriciated.

From Bauzi:

have you tried a avs script with Quicktime movies? It should work.
It was with:
DirectShowSource("C:\path to your video\video.mov")
and with an avyscript you can set also in an oupoint with:
Trim(number of startframe,number of endframe)

Well the whole thing sounds a bit to easy for me... Maybe I didn´t really understand what you want :/

Yeah, see, as the topic indicates I'm looking for the OSX equivalent of VDub - i.e. something I can run on my MacBookPro.

I imagine worst-case, I can do all the clipping on my XP machine, transfer the HuffYUVs/whatever to my MBP, and then convert to Cinepak then, but I'd rather get it all done on one machine.

From Bauzi:

...fuck sounds horrible.... So why don´t you use only the XP machine if nobody else can tell you something to solve this problem?

i was kinda forced into teaching an imovie class last year.

while i educated myself on imovie, i looked for something on osx that could do what vdub does.
found a few that claimed to have the features, but did didn't :/
so as far as i see, nope. no vdub match for osx.

there is however a program coming out that lets you use windows aps on a mac (and no, i don't mean bootcamp)

do some googling for it, seen it like 2 weeks ago somewhere. you gotta pay for it though

I don't have or use a Mac, but it's been mentioned on posts about Mac AMV editing: Clip Creator™.

Got the link through Shazzy's Mac AMV Guide software page.

I introduce you to avidemux

(this contains a little info about avidemux...emphasis on a little)

I haven't used it myself...but I found it while trying (in vain) to find a mac equivalent of AviSynth...seems to be worth checking out

Well, there is Darwine.

I don't know how much of an equivalent it is to WINE itself (since I don't have a Mac and my mom wouldn't let me use her iBook for that, not to mention that it's too old), but I've had some success in getting VDubMod to run with WINE on my Linux setup - actually using it effectively, though, is another matter entirely.

Everything mentioned previously will work, though I prefer MPEG Streamclip. Drag your file in, set in and out points using the I and O keys, then export. You can do DV, any codec in a MOV, demux to MPEG, whatever. My guide for using Streamclip.

Though, backtracking on that, if you want lots of little clips, avidemux or Clip Creator would be better. Streamclip is still faster than QuickTime though.
