    Editing video frames

    Hi,

    I need to discover the best way to edit (remove frames from) an imported MPEG in Flash. Usually, I would do this in QT, but it appears that when you cannot edit an MPEG directly, you need to export as a MOV file first. This is fine, but then the audio layer is discarded.

    So, I thought, why not edit directly in Flash? So I imported the MPEG, but it seems that cutting and pasting frames is not a standard procedure, all kinds of weird things happen!

    Can someone please advise the best way to go about this, or point me towards a tutorial or thread which can help?

    Thanks, Steve.

    You may want to strip out the .mpg movie to a different format. If you are on a Mac you can use BBdemux to seperate the video and sound files, then use QT Pro or Cleaner to convert to something other than MPEG-1. Convert the sound file to .aiff with Mpegger drop decoder (classic app) and then recombine the .mov with your .aiff file.

    Now you should be able to use QT Pro to do the editing and you'll be ready to convert to Flash with your final movie.

    Thanks wheels.

    I don't have a Mac - I dont suppose you can advise an application for the PC which can split out the video and audio tracks?

    I am considering obtaining Adobe Premiere - does anyone that has used this consider it to be useful to my needs?

    Thanks, Steve.

    Yes, u may do all that with premier, u can unlink video and audio and export each one separetely, everything u need can be done with it, if you are going to use it a lot and make money out of it then its a good investment, its not cheap.
