since a while I often have the use case to crop long movies to smaller parts and I do this on the command line with ffmpeg, which is very fast. E.g. for a 90 minutes movie cropping into 3 parts, it takes some minutes all together. E.g.:
I tried also huge programs like handbrake but they take long, much longer just to crop parts of the mkv or avi or mp4 movie.Code:ffmpeg -i "inputvideo.mp4" -vcodec copy -acodec copy -ss <start-time(hh:mm:ss)> -to <end-time(hh:mm:ss)> outputvideo.mp4
Is there any GUI for ffmpeg where I can crop and there is e.g. some dialogs for time etc.?
Not neccessary for a preview but would be nice.
Thanks. I hope that this question is not the billionst here about it
I found the question for other things than crop though, but I just want to crop.
Found a question like mine from 2015 though: Any ffmpeg GUI that has a video preview cropping? but no exact answer for it, only the suggestion for XMedia Recode.
EDIT: as Budman1 rightly mentioned, I ment split not crop. So the title is wrong, I edited it.

You mean 'split' into 3 parts rather than 'crop', correct? Crop usually refers to cutting parts from the top, bottom,left and/or right.
If you mean split, where are you getting your times?
Yes, you are right, split it is. I mixed it up, sorry.
Normally I view the splitting parts in VLC and notice the time code, and enter it in a DOS Box for ffmpeg.
But an other question: where is my first post?
EDIT: maybe the reason why I didnt find the right thing was my mix up
Will try clever FFmpeg-GUI now...

oops, please delete
So. clever ffmpeg is not it.
BUT: XMedia Recode is it! I can split parts easily and fast. I have to set in both Video and Audio Tab the Mode: Copy (not Convert) and I can set the marker easy from chapters, with preview. Took me 5 minutes for a 7 GB movie to split 2 parts and I can set all splitting as job and run all jobs with one click, so again faster than command line, where I have to do that each split manually.
