HI

I am editing some videos and i just need to cut some parts, so would like to have the same video as an output just a bit shorter, so I want to keep the audio and video codecs and also quality, size, aspec, and most of the parameters from the source, but if I keep the parameters as defaults it is going to use the kdenlive profiles parameters defaults, what I do not want to use at all, can anyone please advice.

Regards

Advice: Do not use Kdenlive for this job.
You can use ffmpeg apparently.
I pulled this eg from http://stackoverflow.com
ffmpeg -ss 00:00:03 -t 00:00:08 -i movie.mp4 -acodec copy -vcodec copy -async 1 cut.mp4

This command should cut the video starting at 3 secs and giving you next 8 seconds of video.

The -acodec copy and -vcodec copy parameters tell it to copy the audio and video streams - so you would keep the same source audio and vidoe parameters.
