Hi Guys! I am a new user of VMS 17 Platinum. I'm looking for your guidance on the best way to cleanse hours of uninteresting video from terabytes of MP4/H264 files BEFORE I start to bring the good stuff into VMS 17 for post processing. To explain, I use an OSMO Action camera as a dash-cam as well as for regular scene captures during our long historical back-roads adventures. In spite of my simple turn off/turn on protocol I still end up with hours and terabytes of pretty useless footage. Literally, I don't have enough storage capacity to keep it all and I sure don't want to drag multiple 5 gigabyte clips into VMS for 2 minutes of event. There has to be a way (a product) that will let me scrub quickly and cut and dump/delete easily, the endless miles of uneventful footage and to save the good bits.
I've tried some of the free video cutting apps out there but they seem cumbersome, slow (sometimes obsolete) and all seem to want to also be mini-editors which further complicates the process. This has to be something all of you professional/experts deal with continuously.
Thank you all for your participation on these forums. You give me hope that I can master this VMS beast <G>.
