If you can't use [High-Speed mode]...

Bandicut is able to cut or join quickly while keeping the original video quality through [High-Speed mode]. It is best to support [High-Speed mode] for all files, but the current version of Bandicut supports AVI, MP4 (MP4V), MOV, MKV, WMV, WebM, ASF and FLV files.

If you can't use [High-Speed mode], you must use [Encoding mode] of Bandicut.

  High-Speed mode Encoding mode
Full version AVI, MP4 (MP4V), MOV, MKV, WMV, WebM, ASF, FLV
(MPEG series will be supported in the future.)
Most video file formats are supported.
Free version AVI, MP4/MOV
(Doesn't support MP4V codec)
Most video file formats are supported.
* Tip) MPEG Series: MPEG, MPG, DAT, VOB, TS, TP, TRP, M2T, M2TS, MTS, VOB
* Some AVI/MP4 files which have an unsupported codec (MP4V) are not able to use the High-Speed mode in the free version.

* [Seeking] is not available in the following ([Encoding mode] is available):

1. Video files of which the index is damaged

2. Video files without a keyframe or index

3. Video files of which the index is not available for analysis


* Bandicut does not support the following ([Encoding mode] is not available):

1. A file without video (not playable due to no video information or codec support)

(File without audio information available for playback and conversion).




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

Bandicam can precisely cut videos by "Frame" while keeping the original video quality in High-Speed mode.

However, some MP4 video files can only be cut by "Keyframe" instead of "Frame" in High-Speed mode.


- If you use High-Speed mode and you see the error message above, the start time of this file may change because of a codec issue.

- If you use the free version of Bandicut, you can only use Encoding mode in the above case.


* Term) Frame and 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.)
