I get the following when opening a DV-AVI file on Vista:

The keyboard navigation is much improved - the shortcuts seem to work as described on the menu.

This is true for editing MPEG-2, but the problems still remain when editing DV-AVI. "Right Arrow" and "Ctrl + Right Arrow" do nothing when editing DV-AVI.

Video Splitter V2.0.711.19

I cut out a 01:14 section of a 05:32 piece of MPEG-2 video. The video was obtained by extracting one chapter from a DVD and renaming the .VOB file as .mpg. The The 01:14 section cut out by Video Splitter has good audio, but the video is jerky - it seems to speed up and slow down on a 1 to 2 second cycle. While editing the 05:32 piece in Video Splitter there was no sound when the clip was played. The 05:32 piece plays well in Media Player and Movie Maker.

The keyboard navigation is much improved - the shortcuts seem to work as described on the menu. However I find the use of the Page Up and Page Down keys to be the opposite of what I would expect. Using the analogy of moving through a document in a word processor, both Right Arrow and Page Down move you forward through the document, and Left Arrow and Page Up move you backward. In Video Splitter the Page keys are reversed.  Would it be possible to change this, or to add a User Preference to switch the key mapping?

Video Splitter / Navigation through video stream

I tried the V2.0 Beta, and found that most of the keyboard shortcuts for moving through the video didn't work. So I went to V1.2 (which was better but the right arrow key was still broken).

Compared to AVI Trimmer the first big difference was that the mouse wheel did not work for scrolling through the video stream - this is very nice to use for quick positioning in a short video.

My particular project was to cut up video of 7 performances of a play for assembly into a single stream. There are a couple of things that would really speed this up:

1. Zoom-sensitive scrolling. Keyboard: up arrow zooms in, down arrow zooms out. Right and left arrows scroll a set amount of the video on display at the current zoom level - say 2%. Mouse scroll wheel behaves like right / left arrows. This means that I can scroll faster through the zoomed out video to get a rough position, the zoom in and have finer control. The best setting for the "2%" value would have to be determined by trial and error.

2. Automatic detection and marking of all-black frames. This would help find scene changes, and probably help demarcate commercial breaks in TV video. There would have to be a minimum time between adjacent markers.

Hope this helps!
