    h.264 in & out: which ist the fastest way?

    I have to ingest a +2 hour program (*.mov, h264) into the Avid. then simply remove some parts of the program and make a new h264/*.mov file for the client. No fx, no renders.

    What would be the smartest and fastest way to get this done?

    I would love to do it in PrPro but there is no CC on this system.

    so...

     

    TIA

    1. Link to file.

    2. Make edits.

    3. Export.

    There may be a faster/smarter way, but this is my first thought.

    Media Composer 2018.12.5 w/Symphony/SS/PF options, HP Envy 17t-j100 Quad Edition laptop, Windows 10 Pro, Intel Core i7 2.4GHz, 16 GB RAM, nVidia GeForce... [view my complete system specs]

    SD HD 4K?

    The biggest the resolution the fastest the PC you need in order to AMA edit and export Same as Source.

    Having said that I would probably do what Carl suggests if I didn't have the time.

    Having more time I would transcode and then I would do the job faster (even on a lower spec PC).

    By far the quickest way is to use something like 'Machete' or 'Avidemux'. All that is required is that the 'in' point after each edit is an I-Frame. Just drag the file in, cut out the required section and the output will simply copy whats left without any rendering. You can also select an in and out point, starting with an I-Frame and output just that section.

    Two commercial products TMPGENC smart renderer and VideoReDo will allow you to make frame accurate edits and only recompress what's necessary around the cuts.  Very fast.

    (Also very good for merging spanned GoPro clips into a single file for Avid linking.)
