I had a bunch of mpg files that I only needed a portion of in Final Cut. Because that format doesn't work in FCP, I needed to convert them



To save time, I used the trim function on quicktime to just get the bits I needed. However, I noticed that after converting the MPGs to DV PAL, they reverted back to their original length. I tried a couple of other formats and the same thing happened. Can anyone help?

    I just tried to use QuickTime to trim mp4 video clips, after trimming I can expoted video clips to iTune or

    other folders. Somehow my quicktime could not play mpeg video directly, so I need to user other software (

    Wondershare video conveter) to first convert mpeg video to mp4 format, then use QuickTime to trim mp4 video clips.


    Hope this may help
