Editors' Review


Xilisoft's Video Cutter 2 is an easy-to-use shareware video-editing tool. It's designed to make quick work of cutting and saving excerpts from videos. You simply drag arrows to set the beginning and end points of the clips you want to extract, and Video Cutter does the rest. Video Cutter works with most video file types, including Flash video, so you won't need to convert your clips to post them on sites like YouTube. But Video Cutter can also convert your files on output, if you tell it to. Video Cutter is free to try, but the trial version is limited to three cuts.

Video Cutter's simple interface opens with a Getting Started screen. The program's procedure is simple: click the Plus sign, browse to a compatible video file, and click the Play button. Then set the beginning and end points and press the Cut button. We started with an AVI from our archive. It played smoothly in Video Cutter. We advanced to the section we wanted to extract and set the beginning and end points by clicking each arrow and dragging it into place, much like setting the margins in a word processor. We could also enter the start and end times directly via counters. You can set multiple segments to cut, and each appears in the program's expandable file list, though of course the trial limited us to just three clips. A check box tells Video Cutter to combine all the segments into one file. We could preview our clips before cutting to make sure everything was just right. Clicking the Cut button initiated our batch, after we chose our Output Settings. We could keep the existing video's format or convert it by simply selecting our device or file type from an extensive list. Other than a nag screen in the trial, that's all there is to it. Our new clips played normally.

Xilisoft's Video Cutter 2 easily handled jobs like extracting clips and editing out commercials from recorded TV. Free tools offer similar features, but Video Cutter's trial is sufficient to show what it can do.

"3 files trial is too cheap to even consider installing"

November 23, 2012  |  By Wingoagency

 |  Version: Xilisoft Video Cutter


NONE. Because I cannot really get to see the output.


Cheap business model for trial of only 3 files.
Cannot uninstalled afterwards. Feels like being spammed.
Might have been actually a good software but I can never get to the point where I see a finished cut. A simple warning of checking the start and point and end point marker will help new users to understand how to user the interface. Minus another point
Even big software like adobe let us try 30 days. So say a simple program should at least let use use couple days to get familiar with the various functions and see how accurate the cut is.
Problem with uninstall. Minus yet ANOTHER BIG POINT.


DO NOT brother to download! A waste of time. There are many simple programs that do the same without the hassle of uninstalling and 3 times only trial. If you need accurate and good products use the big programs such as Adobe's
