Does what it says on the tin, and does it pretty well so far. Had a couple videos I just wanted to make quick cuts, and this worked perfect. Quick, to the point and does the job very well.

Works really fast and does exactly what it says it will! I have a lot of videos laying around that I wanted to trim and this knocked em out really quickly and took a minute to learn.

Super fast, available across Windows, Mac and Linux and it's free and open-source. Best-in-class for cross-platform video clipping.

Unbelievably fast lossless cutting without need to encode the resulting video. Saves time, CPU and video quality. Your drive speed is the speed limit.
Some video previews lack sound, in that case use File / Convert to supported format and select option with audio.
It has merging tool that can merge cuts from multiple files.

Needs to be a bit more easy/convenient to use. I am talking mainly about

  • the buttons: needs to be a bit bigger and some are confusing/similar looking
  • navigation in the video not intuitive, shoule be: arrow keys, shift/ctrl + arrow for faster os slower move?
  • the segments not so quick to recognize which is which, which newest

Somehow if fails to merge and export my .avi segments into many casual formats like webm, webp, hevc

Cutting needs to be improved (can anyone help?): https://github.com/mifi/lossless-cut/issues/126

Fast cuts, nice interface, much much faster than Snagit editor to cut edit videos.
Easy to use

Interface is good, seems fast, but it messed up creating output. I asked for 3 clips to be output to single file and what I got was clip1 then clip 1 plus the bit between clip1 and 2 then clip 1 again, then ... I gave up and closed the output. Retraced my steps to make sure I wasn't at fault. Time is precious.

I've only got a couple of hours on this app but so far it has worked well and without issue on my 5 year old, dual core laptop. Didn't need any instructions either as tool tips pop up when you hover your mouse cursor over the buttons. I used it to cut out several sections of some MP4's and merged several together to test. Cut and merge operations were almost instant and indeed "lossless" as confirmed by Media info.

I tried two other popular lossless cutters previous to this. One was super laggy and would crash frequently for any number of reasons. The other would spit out corrupted merged files nearly half the time. I experienced none of the same issues with this so far. None actually.

My only gripe I would say was with fine tuning to the nearest keyframe cut points. I'm not clear how to find them easily without using trial and error so it took me a few tries to get it right each time. Perhaps there are indicators which I missed?? Still, the results were flawless and there are a few other usefull features that the others I tested didn't have.

Overall, it''s not quite perfect yet but it certainly deserves better than a 4 star rating considering the fast performance and the lossless results. Therefore, I give it a "lossless" rating as well.

i signed just to preview this software!..It is powerful it cutted my 6gb mkv video easily without re-encoding it and i downloaded it because avidemux sadly wasn't powerful enough to play the video and it was crashing everytime i was trying to do that .. now i have the two softwares side by side because avidemux also have his good sides that lossless cut doesn't have.
