    "Brilliant!"

    March 2, 2010  |   By TravelingExecutioner

    Version: SolveigMM AVI Trimmer 1.6.912.18

    Pros

    Blazingly fast and easy to use!

    Cons

    Absolutely none!

    Summary

    High kudos to Russia's Solveig Multimedia for offering this brilliantly simple, blazingly fast AVI clipper. Open the program and select your source AVI file, and Solveig will pop up a powerful display screen capable of playing your source video with incredible smoothness, even if you're using a primitive computer with precious few resources. I tested this software on a 500mhz Pentium III with only 700mb of RAM, and the darned thing still ran like a top, with no jerks or jitters. Using 'play' and 'pause,' select your desired clip segment with the 'in' and 'out' buttons and click 'Run.' In a matter of seconds (literally), the selected clip will be exported to your designated folder as a stand-alone AVI video file. For gonzo indie filmmakers, Solveig AVI Trimmer is a refreshing free alternative to the plethora of programs that expect us to know how to build a clock when all we want to know is what time it is. It has become an invaluable addition to my own toolkit.

    "Worth Downloading"

    February 5, 2010  |   By TamiGold

    Version: SolveigMM AVI Trimmer 1.6.912.18

    Pros

    This program actually lets you use it before you but it. No, it's not free. It's a 21 day trial but worth the download.

    Cons

    None that I can think of right now.

    Summary

    I just downloaded three avi splitter programs after trying to cut an avi movie in Windows movie maker - what a disaster that was and why does it take SO long? The other programs I downloaded from this site only let me split one half of the movie, split it in two minute increments, put a watermark and I can't remember what else but it was limited in it's use and if that's the case, why put it out as a free trial? This program actually lets you use it - fully functional - before you buy it and you know what? For that feature alone, I'll buy it. I spent all night trying to split a movie so I could email it then I downloaded this program and it was done in minutes. I think cnet should separate their downloads and flag the ones that aren't fully functional for users like me - I needed it done quickly and every time I come to this site, I need to spend hours looking for the right software. Can't you color code the programs to let us know that they're not fully functional and we're wasting our time?

    I will NEVER ever buy a program that offers a free trial with limited use. I don't care how good it is either. It's a scam, a racket to try to get your money because they know you don't want to search for the right software on this site. So, if you don't want to run into a hassle and want to try a program that actually works - download this one. No, there's no bells and whistles on it. It just does what it says it does and does it fast.

    Sorry, I'm a little frustrated as I am every time I come to download.com.

    "Works for me"

    April 29, 2009  |   By downdown

    Version: SolveigMM AVI Trimmer 1.6.810.31

    Pros

    Works.
    Small.
    Tidy.
    No nags.
    Free.

    Cons

    None. Just none.

    Summary

    Select multiple sections from any AVI (any frame rate). Automatically stitches them together into a new AVI (same frame rate).

    It may be simple, and it may be limited to AVIs, but it does exactly what it claims to do. Can't fault it. Can't understand why the average rating is so low.

    "Brilliant, did exactly what I wanted and needed"

    April 2, 2009  |   By delbarto69

    Version: SolveigMM AVI Trimmer 1.6.810.31

    Pros

    easy-to-use, I wanted to cut a scene to make into a separate file, just click where to begin & where to finish, where to save the new file & run, I was done from beginning to end in 3mins, my scene perfectly cut into a new file, the original intact

    Cons

    don't have any, it was free and did exactly what I wanted

    Summary

    if what you want is a tool to cut a scene from a larger avi file into a separate file , let's say the cake scene from a home birthday party movie, this is your tool, very very easy-to-use and it leaves the original intact.

    Just select the source video, the folder where you wish to save and the new file and it's name, one click at the beginning of the scene, and another click at the end of the scene (using the little flags as markers) and hit run! And you're done! Just takes minutes if that!

    I know I have repeated myself but I was really impressed with just how easy it was, brilliant little program and what more can you ask for, it was free!

    If you need to do something similar I highly recommend

    A big thank you to the makers!

    "Easy enough to use, finished product is unacceptable."

    October 25, 2008  |   By reent612

    Version: SolveigMM AVI Trimmer 1.6.806.10

    Pros

    Easy to use interface; barely uses memory compared to other video editing products

    Cons

    Editing an avi movie to remove bad language simply threw off the audio/video sync.

    Summary

    Not worth the download. If a future version would allow for audio muting, perhaps it wouldn't alter the audio syncronization.

    "this just plane sucks TT_TT"

    September 9, 2008  |   By godbluebill

    Version: SolveigMM AVI Trimmer 1.6.806.10

    Pros

    looks simple but nothing works

    Cons

    extremely difficult to use due to the fact you can't combine two avi's together like you can with windows movie maker and the program is unresponsive and to top it off you have to pay money to go pro,

    Summary

    i think that is what the last person who posted this meant what a waist of my and your own time don't even bother with downloading this and if u do make sure you put it in either a new folder or one you don't care about to make it easy to uninstall it other wise you will be in a world of hurt when you got to delete it. i know this is one of my first posts but you really don't want to try this unless you just like to kill time doing stupid stuff ^^
