"I have a Kodak digital camera which also records short video clips. The videos are stored in a Quicktime format (*.MOV file) by the camera.Like most people, I use Windows, not Macintosh. I can open these videos with Quicktime player, but all I can do is play them - I can't edit them, compress them, or save them in other formats.Kodak told me I should buy Apple's video editing software - I checked into this option, but their software only runs on a Macintosh.I have Windows Movie Maker on my PC, but it won't open a Quicktime file.
I need either (a) some kind of video editing software for Windows that can handle this file, or (b) some kind of utility that can convert it to something I can use with Windows Movie Maker. I've heard that Adobe Premier will do it, but that costs hundreds of dollars and seems like something for professionals - I'm just an average guy who wants to cut out a piece of video and send it to my friends on the internet. I'm willing to spend a few dollars if I have to, but I'm not interested in investing in a video editing studio.Can anyone recommend a product that can help me?"
"Is there a free/cheap program for PC/Mac (preferably PC) that will split a .MOV into separate files? I have several 30 minute long .MOV files that I need to split into 6 or 7 pieces. The resulting files also have to be their own independent .MOV files so I can't use zip or some other compression program. Anyone have suggestions?"
