[High-Speed mode] is available vs. not available


1. [High-Speed mode] for Video Cutting

Bandicut is able to cut parts of video quickly while maintaining the quality of the original video through [High-Speed mode].

  • Some video files that have an unsupported codec (PCM Blu-ray audio) are not able to use High-Speed mode.
  • Some video files that have an MPEG-4 or HEVC codec are not able to use High-Speed mode in the free version.
  • => If you can't use [High-Speed mode], you must use [Encoding mode] of Bandicut.



2. [High-Speed mode] for Video Joining

  • You can use High-speed mode for Joiner only when all formats (Video resolution, codec, etc.) are exactly the same.
  • You have to join videos first and then cut the video with [High-speed mode] (If you cut a video first then join videos, you will not be able to use [High-Speed mode].)» See more
  • => If you can't use [High-Speed mode], you must use [Encoding mode] of Bandicut.



3. [Seeking] is not available in the following

  • Video files of which the index is damaged
  • Video files without a keyframe or index
  • Video files of which the index is not available for analysis
  • => In this case, you may try [Encoding mode] of Bandicut



4. The start time of this file may change when using High-speed mode

Bandicam can precisely cut videos by "Frame" while maintaining the quality of the original video. However, some video files can only be cut by "Keyframe" in High-Speed mode.

If you use [High-Speed mode] and see the error message above, the video will be cut by "Keyframe" and the start time of the video may change. (If you use [Encoding mode], you can always cut videos precisely by "Frame".)


* Term) Frame and Keyframe

Frame and Keyframe, video frame, video keyframe

- Frame: A frame is a single shot of a series of still transparent pictures that form a video. (A frame contains partial information of a still scene.)

- Keyframe: A video file has a limited number of keyframes - not every frame is a keyframe. A keyframe is a frame used to indicate the beginning or end of a change made to the signal. (A keyframe contains full information of a still scene.)

(If there is a 30 FPS video, it will have 30 "Frames" and may have 1~5 "Keyframes" per second.)
