    Thanks Jeremy! Looks like I figured it out at the same time you wrote this. Laughing Thanks so much for taking the time to explain! Very much appreciated.

    No problem! Make sure you do the same for audio too. 🙂

    Looks like choosing the sliced clip in Retiming has to be done before check Video Passthrough.

    Hmm. I don’t have to do that here. Have you added a preset to the video? Any preset will do.

    I added a Prores HQ 422 preset. If I don’t do this, it will output the whole clip, not the clip with IN & OUT I set.

    Here’s a picture. You can see that I added a Pr444XQ preset, but once everything is set to passthrough and added in and out points on the clip, I am getting the same codec as the incoming clip (in this case XAVC, Class 480).

    I see. I haven’t tried outputting keeping Set duration to 100%, but I assumed it wouldn’t honor the IN & OUT.

    I’m a bit late at the party, but nevertheless:
    FFmpeg is a good util for this. just use FFmpeg -ss [intime] -i [invid] -c: copy -t [duration] [outvid]
    I’ve made a front end for FFmpeg that does this (well, and way more) to cut batches of clips based on an Excel or simple CSV input (At least TCin / TCout).
    (This was for a MoCap company that had to cut tons of short clips out of long recordings.)
    Toy with it if you like, a demo can be found here:

    I just found Elmedia Player for playing movies. There’s a free version.

    The paid $20 version claims to enable you to “download all online videos.” I’m not sure how that’s legal, but it could come in handy if your work requires you to snag videos under Fair Use, or you just want to save movies locally to study them, or whatever. I haven’t bought the upgrade yet, but the price seems reasonable, especially considering what some of these other players mentioned cost.
