Breaking a video into smaller pieces

I have Nero Platinum 2018. I have an MP4 video file that I would like to break into 7 30 minute episodes. It looks like Nero Video should be the product that will handle this, but for the life of me I cannot figure out how to do it.

  • Hi Alan-

    I'll provide more details tomorrow but Nero Video is normally used for that.

    I assume you want to save each clip individually.

    In Nero Video, select Make Advanced Movie. Select Import, Import File and import your file. Drag it to Video track 1 on the timeline. Click on the scissors on the right hand side. Hover them over the video on the timeline and when you see where you want to make a cut, just click. Repeat as desired. Click on the selection icon (white arrow) on the right. You can then save each clip as a separate file. I've got to get out of here so I'll come back tomorrow (one of the other volunteers may jump in) to get into the way to save them.

    e.g. indifferent, undecided, unconcerned happy, confident, thankful, excited kidding, amused, unsure, silly sad, anxious, confused, frustrated

  • To continue-

    After you have made your cuts and selected the Selection tool, hover your mouse in the grey are of the time scale at the top of the timeline. Right click and select "Enable Workspace.

    A white area with black markers will appear at the top of the timeline. Move the black markers to encompass one of the clips you have made. Click on Export, Export to File (the default). Select a video format and name and location for the file. Click on Export. After it's done, repeat with the additional clips. One is supposed to be able to enable the workspace for more than one clip in v2016 and later so that you can export two clips as separate files but I've never used it. I still need to look for it.

  • To cut in Express Mode drag the red time indicator over the thumbnail. If you hover with the mouse over it a little split symbol will show up. Just click on it.
