I'm sure other editors have similar features. To convert an hour long video clip to a minute long clip using AVIFrate you would have to increase the frame rate 60 fold. I'm guessing this will involve blending and dropping frames so the final video maintains the essence of the action from 1 hour compressed into 1 minute. OR Virtualdub , skip multiple frames and save using direct stream copy mode. Won't re-render this way and will keep quality up and have no blending. Replies: 2 Last Post: 25th Mar , I was just throwing it out there. I don't know the correct term for this, but I want to convert a long video clip say 1 hour into a short video clip say with a running time of just 1 minute. I would personally refer this to an editor being an editor myself first in this hobby.
