Q: free software to grab or save part of a clip or movie

good day.
I'm looking for a program or software that's pref. free that can grab or save parts of a movie or clip.. something simple and easy to use.

i'm planning on making a presentation and just wanted to join parts of tv clips and movie (dvd and avi format) i've purchased from the store.


Preferred Solution: free software to grab or save part of a clip or movie

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I'm using video studio x9 and there isn't a lot of intro movie clips when I try to make a DVD. Does anyone know of any software out there that I can use for an "into" to my DVD's. My video studio can read all types of formats, so if you know of any I can try. Thanks, I looked everywhere on google, can't seem to find any. If anyone uses DVD software to create DVD's you probably use some of these types of intros.

I'm currently running Windows XP Pro. The only thing I've always been jealous of about Mac is iMovie, as it is the best movie editing software, no doubt. However, lately I was looking for a Windows alternative. I've found Corel VideoStudio and Adobe Premier Elements (paid), but I can't afford them and I don't want to use software cracks.

I looked at Avidemux and VirtualDub, but both seem to have different interfaces from iMovie (no timeline). So I looked a little further for some movie editing software for Windows I could get for free. I found:

Avid FreeDV
Does anyone have any experience with those? I'd like to see a comparison.

Thank you,

I've got bored of the Windows Movie Maker Transitions and Effects so I've gone online and tried to find some FREE transitions and effects software. I came across pixelan and rehanFx.

However, annoyingly pixelan makes a cross appear on the centre of the picture during a transition. So, I contacted the company and they said that to get rid of the cross I had to buy the full version.

RehanFX works fine, but unfortunately it only has a 14 day trial.

Can anybody recommend any transitions and effects software that is completely free with no trials or annoying stuff like that?

Any recommendation will be greatly appreciated.

Is there a way (in ppt), to stop this warning from popping up everytime I want to view a movie clip?

A:Video clip - part 2

I don't think I get that error in Pp2010, I attempted to replicate the error. All i discovered was I have the ability to Place videos off of the internet directly into my slides without having to download anything. I wonder if this is true for 2007? If it is, and you got your video directly off of the internet, you might be able to bypass such an error. You copy the embedded code and paste it into your slide (either that, or using the add video feature). Such as this:

Are you able to do this? Otherwise, I am not sure there is a way to do what you want it to do, as I cannot test your program myself. Try seeing if the error happens with preloaded videos on your computer, or just different videos in general. Look through the settings, etc. for options that deal with this.

*EDIT* Yes, it is the creepy white dude from that video. But I was more curious than is good for me and wanted to see the music video for a song I heard. This is what popped up on my screen about the same time I was testing Pp2010 videos. It was just there. Easily accessible. He doth protest too much.

I had a trojan that I picked up from an attachment. I got rid of it using Mcafee VS 8.5i. That was last night, now i get random sound clips from movies and the click sound that is associated with clicking on I.E.. I should have written down the locations of the trojan, it was primarily happening in the I.E. directory Firefox library and C:\Documents and Settings\Obes\Local Settings\Temp: files called tmpE.tmp and tmpA.tmp. That was all taken care of by Mcafee. The last problem I have is now I can't update my anti-spyware programs - Malwarebytes' anti-malware and Windows Defender. When I try it says it was unable to update or that I have no internet connection. Reset the router (netgear) to factory settings and still get the same problem. I have no connection problem, except with those two applications. Any help would be great. Thanks.

Hi there,

I'm an actress whose friend made a film clip of me for an audition. Now I have to turn it into a DVD.

First problem: I can't even see the clip. It was sent to me as an MODD file, and when I click on it, it takes me to Windows Media Player, where I get the error, "Windows Media Player cannot play the file. The Player might not support the file type or might not support the codec that was used to compress the file."

I have Vista and it's up to date with security packs. I have also downloaded Nero, which I hope will enable me to burn the file onto my writable DVD on my laptop (Lenovo 3000). But first let's check that the video is OK. I tried changing it to .mpg, but go the same error.

Thanks much,

A:Need Help Viewing Movie Clip & Burning DVD

hi - welcome to TSF
to convert the clip from MOD (a JVC - and others - file format) download and use this freeware MOD converter:
open clip in the converter by choosing the file type to search for (by default it is MOD) then choose the file format to save it in (by default it is mpeg but you can set it to avi), choose where to save it to and if it has been filmed in widescreen (16:9) tick the box that says "set widescreen flag" - this will ensure that if you take the clip into a video editor it will come in as widescreen aspect ratio.
Once you have it as an .mpeg or .avi file you can use Nero to burn it to DVD - remember if you want it to play in stand alone DVD players attached to a TV you will have to use DVD authoring part of Nero - Nero Express, not just the data burning part of Nero.
If you don't have Nero Express download and install DVD Shrink - an excellent freeware DVD authoring package.

Hello there .o/

Are you sure it's a movie ? The .mod files I've seen so far are music modules.

I am creating some slideshow scenes to import to DVD Maker from Live Movie Maker.

Each scene starts with a 'title' frame so it would be easy to identify on a dvd menu. I have done all the 'scenes' and all but two saved correctly as .wmv files with the title frame showing as the thumbnail for the file. The fifth scene did not use the title frame but the first photo and the last scene actually skipped to the ninth frame instead (neither will work to identify the photos in that scene for my dvd menu).

The scenes are different sizes - that doesn't seem to matter since smaller and larger ones are saving the way I want. I keep looking for a 'glitch' but can't find anything different between the ones that saved correctly and the ones that didn't.

I used the same camera so all the photos are the same - I am using the default settings in Live Movie Maker so all the settings are the same.

Any ideas?

Why would Live Movie Maker use the first photo rather than the first frame? Did I press a key that set that up?

I tried starting the save with the cursor at the beginning or at the end - it jumps to the beginning each time. I tried those photos by using just one photo with one title frame - that didn't work, I added two title frames - that did work, but when I added more photos it jumped the the ninth frame which had a title frame in front of it.???

I have a sony HDD handy cam. My computer has Power to go on it which I use all the time to burn pictures to cd etc. I am attempting to burn the "movies" that I have transferred to my hard dirve to a DVD that can be watched on tv, as is, meaning including music the video etc. In the past, I have created photo shows with music and effects, and when I burn them to DVD and play on the TV they become still frame shows with no effects and one song playing the whole time. After I burned the DVD's of my movie clips, the TV said to insert a readable disk. I then checked them on the computer and can watch the movies with the Windows media player.

Please let me know what I should be selecting from the available burn formats to properly transfer these movies to a readable DVD for TV viewing. Thanks!

A:Trouble burning a movie clip from my HDD Handy Cam

Well you need software to convert it, if you're using a standard Dvd player for the tv, you need to convert it to standard mpeg2 format 720x480 or 320x240(low quality) resolution. I don't know what your camera output file format is. Never had one.

http://www.videohelp.com/tools can probably find a free converter maybe. Not sure what format , if ya know what type of file you copied on to the dvd, it be more easier to tell.

But none of the files are corrupt or unusable and all work fine, they aren't missing either as I have not moved them from the folder they have been in since I started the project!

If anybody has any advise or knows how to fix the problem I am having I would be highly grateful as I have many people depending on me to have this video done! Thanks!

So I made a montage with Windows Movie Maker, however it simply won't save the movie file, although it will save the project. I've never encountered with problem with my other montages.
Seeing some other questions on these forums I checked my amount of ram, and ended some processes to increase it, currently I'm at 572M/5210 M (Commit Charge), Fluctuating between 6-15% computer usage, and 2.79 GHz, 3.25 GB of Ram. This is with google chrome, task manager, and WMM open.
To check if it wasn't the montage itself I made 2 others, one of the same length, and one about 8 seconds long, both of them caused an error that caused WMM to close immediatly, although it appeared the 8 second long one was going to save. The error message says something went wrong, but the message after it doesn't save is the usual, check if the files are still there ( they are ) and check if you have enough memory (I do).

I thought it would be a good idea in keeping with the overall goal of this site to start a thread to give people a list of legal and secure sites for downloading free or dirt-cheap movies, music and software/games.
I believe this would helpful in terms of not just telling people not to visit/support pirating websites,
but to also give them other alternatives so that there wouldn't be a temptation to go there anyway
(And also for people like me that Don't want to steal, but also don't want to pay more than I have to)

Contains music with expired copyright according to UK copyright law, which states that the copyright expires 70 years after the author's death.

I tried to re-send it to a friend and it would only open in Note Pad on his computer. From the error messages, apparantly there is a problem with the file extension. I sent it back to mayself and figured out how to solve that problem and advised the friend.

What my ultimate goal is, is to post this clip on my website or U-Tube for promotional purposes. Can someone please tell me how to resave this file or what ever else is necessary so that I can post it.

Not knowing what format they were uploaded to and if they all were uploaded in the same format, its hard to say. Are you using the same powerpoint version?

Can you look at them individually within powerpoint and see what they are listed as (not the powerpoint show).

Although this is an audio problem, its more a Powerpoint problem and maybe should be posted in the MS Office section.

I'm wondering if it's possible to somehow back up or export only a portion of the bookmarks library? Like if I only want to save a folder from within my total bookmars library and then reintegrate it latter if I have to.

When I choose "export bookmarks' in the "Organize Bookmarks" Library in Firefox (version 3.6 I hate updates) I can export a huge HTML file or a ".json' file. It always backs up the WHOLE file. I tried just highlighting one folder before clicking on the backup option but it didn't work.

Any ideas?

P.S...and when I "import" bookmarks does that completely replace all my current bookmarks or does that only add to what's already there?

A:Save only part of my bookmarks? Firefox.

There's no way in Firefox to back up only selected bookmarks so you need to look for an extension in the Firefox add-ons library:

When you import bookmarks, they are added to those that already exist in the bookmarks menu.
