VideoWave split and delete

I experimented and found that it splits before. Inconsistently, sometimes right before the frame I'm at, sometimes two frames.
There is a reason for that. If you are editing a MPEG file, splits can only be made on "I" frames. Independant frames are those that have no compression and they are usually several frames apart. This is another reason why DV AVI are easier to edit. All frames are independant of each other so you can make frame accurate splits.

 

The original file is NEVER altered. If you accidently delete something that you can't get back, just add the file back to the project.

(1) After.

 

(3) Learn by experimenting like everyone else.

(2) Click on Edit, then Undo.

Sorry, I meant after undo no longer undoes. I must have done something else following the delete, because undo didn't bring back the deleted segment. So once it's gone, it's gone (like the help says), or is there a way to bring it back (which would make sense, since it's really there in the original)?

When performing splits (or trims), I've found that advancing and reversing the frame in question is a good idea. In other words, when you are at the place where you want to split, back up a couple of frames and go forward again to verify you are at the proper location. Also, you want to make certain that VideoWave is not behind. If there is a lot of disk activity, wait for it to cease to be sure what you are viewing is up to date.

Yeah, I stand corrected on the split. I was trying to remember how I did it, between scenes, and I advanced one frame to where the next video session started and split there, thus the split was before that frame.

 

If you didn't undo right after you made the mistake, you have to start over from where you saved last, or bring the video in again, to the same production, split out everything, except the split you accidentally made, then in Storyline, drag that split to where it belongs in the production.

I don't know if this can help, but I have found that if I have made a split, deleted, and then changed my mind later, I can double click on the split clip and that brings up the Video Trimmer. In the Video Trimmer, under the preview window there are green and red indicators that show where your video clip begins and where it ends. These are actually handles that you can grab and drag outward to increase the amount of the clip shown. Drag the green one at the beginning to the left or the red one at the end to the right to add more of your clip back in.
