Yes, double-clicking the deselected fragment removes it from the storyboard. This allows just the selected fragments to be previewed!

I think adding this step to the user documentation will make it clear for everybody!


Hi Olga,

Thank you for your detailed response!

The steps you have indicated are very helpful! I have been using them for the past few days and now it feels quite intuituve!

There are 2 cases which I have been unable to work out however:

1. Say I have an unwanted section at the start of the clip (which I want to cut). I can not remove this from the storyboard timeline. It will be deselected, but it still appears on the timeline and can be played.

2. For intermediate sections, if I use M and then N the cut function works and the section is removed from the storyboard.
    However, if I select a section using M and then M, and then subsequently wish to cut this, I can not do it. I can deselect the section, but it still remains on the storyboard timeline and will be played.

It would be good to have a dedicated 'cut' command to explicitly remove a section from the storyboard timeline.


I am trying the feature in version 6 to select fragments from multiple clips into a single file. It is a great idea.

Using the n and m keys i am able to select and cut fragments.However, some fragments get automatically removed from the storyboard, and others don't.

I tried using the d command to explicitly remove a fragment from the storyboard preview, but it did not do this.

So the storyboard preview is not a 'clean' rendition of just the clip fragments that have been selected.

Please can you direct me to instructions on how to explicitly control which fragments are displayed in the storyboard?


  I noticed when splitting AVCHD files (.MTS) that I am getting a 'clccard' watermark displayed on the top right-hand corner of the split file for a few moments at the beginning.

  I am using version 2.4.1108.22 .

  I also have ffdshow rev 4225 installed (2012-01-05 version).

  I am not sure if this is due to Solveig splitter or an encoder it may be invoking from the ffdshow library.

  Is there a way to ensure there is no clccard watermark in the split file?

Kind regards,

Hi Dmitry,

  Thanks for your response, the volume slider looks good!

   I will try using the Save Selected Fragment option as you have described and provide some feedback!

Pallab :-)

I am using Vista x64 and have an observation about memory usage.

Just observing memory usage through Windows Task Manager when opening, splitting & closing the same wmv file 3 times I notice that the memory usage creeps upwards each time.

Not sure if this is significant but thought to mention it - is this expected behaviour?

Step                                                    Mem usage (1st time, 2nd time, 3rd time)

As a Video Splitter user I had a couple of ideas that might make it even more awesome! Other people may also have ideas so I have taken the liberty of starting a thread to collect these.

Hopefully the design team will be able to assess these and decide if they can be included in future!

My requests are:

1. Simple volume slider to control playback volume. Useful when editing with Video Splitter and using other media apps at the same time - if the media file being edited with Video Splitter is higher in volume, the volume level can be lowered in relation to other apps.

2. Ability to provide a name for a selected fragment before 'Save All Fragments As'. For example, say I put a marker at points A and B in the clip, and select this fragment for splitting. If there was a 'Name' option as part of the right-click menu then I could right-click fragment AB, select 'Name' which could open a textbox to provide a filename.
   When performing 'Save All Fragments' this could use the 'Name' if specified.
    Any fragments that did not have a 'Name' specified could then be treated using the general naming rule as is done currently. So people that just want to use what is currently available would not be affected.
    Another option could be to use a Fragment Properties option (instead of 'Name') in the menu - the 'Name' could be one of the Properties. This might allow for other user-defined Properties (such as 'Folder' to allow different fragments in the same clip to be saved to different folders) to be added easily. 
   This would help my workflow tremendously!

Hi Maxim,

  Thanks for posting the updated beta, I will capture the screenshot if I observe this again!

Hi! Stability of the new beta 2.3.1009.08 is much better with wmv files!

I seem to see a problem when I have 2 instances open (I find it useful to have 2 instances open to make my workflow more efficient - while 1 instance is performing the trimming operation on clip A, I use the second instance to browse clip B and select which sections to keep). In this situation the instance that is trimming may freeze after reaching 99% complete for a particular tasks. I  then see a Microdoft Visual C++ Runtime Library  error window:

     Runtime Error!

     Program:D:\Program Files (x86)\S...

     This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.
      Please contact the application's support team for more information.

 For example, in the case i am looking at the trimmer task was going to process 16 tasks, but hung at task 1/16 (99% of current task, 6% of total).
 However, in a previous occurence it completed 4 out of 17 tasks and hung on the 5th one.
 In both occurences it hangs at 99% of the current task. The trimmed clip file is written to disk but not closed properly.

  This has happened 4 times over the past day. In some cases the C++ Runtime Error window was not displayed - in this case the trimming process could be cancelled and the SolveigMM window closed, but the SMMVSplitter.exe *32 process was left hanging and had to be killed through Task Manager.

 I have observed this with both wmv & mpg files. It does not happen the first time I start the second instance - usually both instances complete one or two clip processing sequences successfully before one of them freezes.

  I have not observed this scenario with the previous stable version (2.2.1005.17).

  Maybe you will be able to reproduce this in your lab?

Hi! I have downloaded from the original link posted by Dmitry, but this file is timestamped 2010-07-13 and has the same name as the previous beta. Is this the correct link for the updated beta?

Hi! I guess you guys must be busy with the development, just wondering if there was an updated beta coming up which has been through some regression testing for wmv file editing?

Warm regards,

Thanks for the update.

However, I am noticing some stability issues with trimming .wmv files with each of these beta versions (i.e. after 2.2.1005.4). Both Trim & Save All Fragments operations can freeze unexpectedly, sometimes even for the first .wmv that is opened, and I have to terminate the instance.

When I revert back to the stable version (2.2.1005.4) I do not see these issues.

It is possible that the changes that have been submitted since this version need some regression testing to ensure the existing functionality is not affected. :-)

Essentially for each of the beta updates (3 so far, including the latest version 2.3.1007.13) I have had to uninstall and revert back to the stable version 2.2.1005.4 as I am primarily working with .wmv files.

Please investigate this if possible. I am using Vista Ultimate SP2 x64 on an Intel Quad Q9650 @ 3 GHz, 8 GB RAM if that helps.

I have noticed an issue if I open a file of type A, trim it, then open a file of type B (different from File A) and try to trim it.

For example:

  1. Open File A (.wmv for example)
  2. Perform a Trim operation (successful)
  3. Open File B (different type from File A - e.g. xvid or .avi)
  4. Select parts to split (ok)
  5. Attempt to perform a Trim operation - unsuccessful with following error:

       Can't start trim process ( HRESULT:0xc00d0026 ).

If I close the Splitter instance, open a new instance and perform the splitting operation on File B it is successful.

Please see if this issue can be reproduced?

A small feature request.

Is it possible to include a volume level slider in the preview window?

I sometimes have multiple media applications running on my PC (e.g. vlc & video splitter) and it would be useful to be able to adjust the volume level for video splitter application to balance against the other apps.

I think the clip size (reported in the bottom left-hand corner) is not updated after the first clip.

E.g. Open clip A with length 20 mins. Clip length of 20 mins is reported.
      Open clip B with length 25 mins. Clip length of 20 mins is reported.
      Open clip C with length 15 mins. Clip length of 20 mins is reported.
I am using version 2.2.1006.29 from the link above.
