Kate's Video Cutter
Kate's Video Cutter is a program that you can use to cut clips and convert videos in various formats. The user interface is simple and straightforward, so you should not have any problems getting around it, no matter what level of experience you have.
In order to perform a task, you must specify the input file as well as the output destination, customize the settings, select the output format, start time and end time, then start cutting. Unfortunately, the drag and drop method is not supported so loading the files can be done only using the built-in file browser.
The output format of the videos can be AVI, MPEG, WMV, MOV, DVD, VCD, SVCD, and the program recognizes files with the AVI, MPG, MPEG, MPV, WMV, WMV, ASF, MOV, 3GP, 3G2, MP4, M4V and FLV extension.
Advanced options include setting up the audio and video compressor, audio channels and sample rate, audio and video bitrate, as well as resizing output.
Before initiating a task, you can preview the source and the output file. In addition, you can enable Kate's Video Cutter to open the output directory after the task is completed.
However, only the output directory you set at the global level will be opened, whether you select another output destination after pressing the Cut button or not.
A task is completed in a reasonable amount of time, depending on the size and format of the files (while using a low amount of system resources), but Kate's Video Cutter doesn't really handle all the aforementioned formats.
For example, the application was unable to convert files from MPG to AVI, 3GP to anything, MOV to anything, and so on. The program requires QuickTime to be installed for 3GP, MOV and others, but even so, it doesn't work in these cases.
In conclusion, Kate's Video Cutter is a nothing more than a decent application for cutting and converting video files. It is quite easy to use and with simple features so even less experienced users can make the most out of it.
