Question

I usually like to record for long periods of time with my roxio game capture hd pro, but sometimes I only want a little clip out of that recording, and when I edit the clip out that I want, I have to keep the large file of the whole recording or else I lose my clip. Is there is a way where I can keep my small clip but I don't have to keep the giant recording file? Should I render out my small clip and then delete the large recording file? Any suggestions are appreciated!

even when I trim it the whole m2ts recording file is still there

 

?????

 

Please explain exactly what you are doing.

 

When you do a trim and then Export As you should get a new file with the trimmed video removed. (Make sure you do not overwrite the original file)

When I'm editing the m2ts recording file in roxio video wave and save that edit, it only saves a file of what parts to cut out of the full recording file and I need the full recording file if I want the trimming that I made to save.

Again I don't understand what you are doing. Please give a step-by-step description of your process. Are you doing a "Export"?

In answer to the bolded part above, yes, that is what is being suggested. Do an "Export" of the trimmed video ("render out" to use your words) to a new file, then you can delete the rest of the recording.

Trim ~ Export As???

Your missing the big picture..

 

You Trim it.

 

Then you Export As and give it a new name...

 

Now you have a trimed file and your original remains untouched. ;)
