    My digital camera saves movie clips in QuickTime's .MOV format. What easy-to-use, free/cheap editor can I get to edit these files (basically, I just want to snip out short sections for posting online; saving as other file types would be a nice option, too)?

    Thanks for any help GTers can provide!








    And no, they aren't THAT kind of videos. Pervs... :supergrin:

    I'd like to be able to save short action clips from the range, like this screen cap shows:

    Hmmm.

    Maybe there ISN'T a free/cheap .MOV editor, which would explain why I couldn't find one during my search. :dunno:

    Last call for assistance...

    Thanks for the input.

    I think it's kinda strange that there doesn't seem to be anything out there. Does Apple guard the code that closely, that no one can do anything with it?

    (sigh)

    I guess I'm resigned to seeing what Apple has to offer.
    Thanks to all who looked in.

    Huh! I never considered converting it to another format right off the bat. Maybe that will get me where I need to go!


    Thanks!
