    Hi there,

    Sorry in advance if I have posted this thread in the wrong section it is not clear to me where precisely I should put it (if anywhere) please advise…anyway…

    I do a lot of video clips on my phone. Occasionally I might make the clip too long and so need to cut the film down by, for instance shopping the last five seconds off it.
    To do this I first convert the file from 3GP to AVI and then use Windows Movie Maker to cut it down to size.
    Unfortunately I find that by the time I have gone through this process the file has reduced in size by a vast amount, reducing the visual and audio quality substantially.

    This basically means that at the moment I have to either do a perfect take every time I film something (which of course is not always possible)
    edit the film, but be left with a reduced visual and audio quality (which is really poor)
    or, leave my flawed masterpiece as it is. (Not particularly appealing)

    Is there anyway of being able to edit my video clip without reducing the quality.

    Yours really hopefully Richard Milner.

    Hi Bonk,

    Does that mean I have to check to see if a similar topic has been posted to my problem and if so just to refer to that and not post my own ?
