Removing Chapters / Adverts 760GX

vbimport

#1

Does removing chapters remove that segment of the video from the file, say an advert or are you better splitting the files and remerging them.


#2

The file stays intact and the chapter is marked as hidden - I’ve found that some players will ignore the hidden attribute and still show the whole recording. I use split and merge to cut out the adverts and it works well - use the Set Thumbnail to see where the split will occur as it won’t always be the frame you have paused at.

I agree, and would only add that finding the exact spot
to split takes practice. :slight_smile:


#4

I find it always splits at the point where the thumbnail image shows. The thumbnails won’t show every image that you can pause at so I pause where I think I want the split to be, then I set the thumbnail at that point and check it is where I want it. Sometimes it’s before where I paused, sometimes after so it’s a case of adjusting until I get to the best place - I’d rather cut out half a second of the film instead of getting half a second of the adverts still in my finished movie.
