Saving Video Files Separately After Splitting

The explanation is too long to give you all the detail here. Start with the original video and split it into scenes. This is done automatically. The scenes are attached to the original video. When you go to use a scene, click on the original and the scenes will open. You can drag the ones you want to your production. I don't have V 7/7.5 on this computer so I can't post a image file

 

The alternative is to save the original project and then open it, delete all the scenes but the one you want and then save it as another name. Open the original again and repeat as necessary. If you have only a few scenes, you can do this ; if you have many, consider the first method.

 

Hello,

Used Video Wave to edit a video file from my video camera and I split the file into segments. Any way to save each segment as a separate video file? Cannot figure it out--the Help menu is SOOOO Basic!

Thanks for any help!

Propably the quickest way would be to simply recapture the video but this time only capture the segments you want into separate files. You can easily trim off a few seconds from the start and end of the captured segments. I have found it much easier to always capture in small segments, makes it so much easier to edit.

There is also a small free utility available called WinDV which you can use to caprture from a digital camcorder. It will create separate files for scenes based on the timestamp of your video tape. Each time you started the camcorder, would create a new file.
