    Hello,

    I need to rip a segment from an MP4 file.
    • I noticed that AviDemux 1) even when choosing to re-encode the video stream, doesn't start at the right frame (it seems to start at the last keyframe), and 2) doesn't display frame numbers (only time.)
    • VirtualDub does display the frame numbers, but only saves videos as AVI.
    • ffmpeg doesn't seem to support starting/ending at given frames either.

    So I was wondering if there's a free basic NRE for Windows that can 1) reliably re-encode at a given frame, and 2) save files as MP4 (h264 + aac)?

    Thank you.

    Virtualdub with ffmpeg external encoder is one solution, https://forum.videohelp.com/threads/367446-Virtualdub-External-Encoder-feature

    I haven't seen any other basic editor with frame number cutting.

    Thanks. Seems a bit complicated to set up for me. I'll reluctantly use Corel VideoStudio, then (wanted something lighter for a quick job).

    Incidently, why does VirtualDub 1) still uses AVI instead of MP4, and 2) only supports Xvid?

    Aviutl. It's probably too complicated for you, but others may find it useful.
    Got my retirement plans all set. Looks like I only have to work another 5 years after I die........
