MPEG cutter/joiner for Edius files??
Didn't know where to post this.
Can anyone recommend a good mpeg cutter/joiner application for Edius encoded mpeg files (without the need to re-encode)?
I've always used the Canopus MPEGcraft program but it doesn't support mpeg files with AC3 audio.

I've googled it but would like any recommendations from any users here.

I think I tried it once and it took time. I will try it again.

for this to work - the frame size and bit rates must be the same as the original - if the bit rate is VBR then the upper rate is the one that needs to match the original clips

Just tried it with Edius. Doesn't work. A 1hr 40min clip with another clip (same bitrate for clips and while export), was estimating 15mins. Would be around 3-4mins with an MPEG cutter program.

Did you have the render codec for the timeline set to MPEG as well as choosing MPEG as the export format and ticking "segment encode". Last time I tried it I had to do that as well.

Try this:

It works for me, although it is not free,
