I have a movie file shot in QuickTime format (.mov), and I'd like to edit it for length (take the first 15 seconds or so off).  Unfortunately, it appears that Windows Movie Maker does not support QuickTime (probably because it's an Apple product).

Can anyone recommend some free/shareware, relatively easy-to-use options for this?

Thanks,
Rhys

Off the top of my head, the RAD Video Tools might be able to help out.

They should let you convert a video in MOV format to a format that is easier to edit, such as AVI. It should then be fairly straightforward to edit the resulting video in a program such as VirtualDub.

There are some other solutions out there but many of them aren't free. Upgrading to QuickTime Pro will let you edit existing MOV files. But that's going to cost you about $30 (last time I checked anyway).

Depends on where your movie file is coming from, this might do the trick:

http://sourceforge.n...cts/mp4cam2avi/

This one doesn't transcode so it should convert the files pretty quickly.  This will work for most camera/camera phone videos as well as any downloaded clips geared for ipods/iphones.  Otherwise, shelling out for QuickTime Pro is probably your best option.

It was from our camera, so I'll give one of these conversion programs a try...

Thanks!

I did make use of this tool to convert the movie to AVI, then edit it down.

Thanks for the help, everyone!

I use iDealshare VideoGo to edit MOV video.
It helps to:
  • Remove any unneeded contents in MOV video including black borders, commercial logos, watermark, subtitles, audio track, etc.
  • Split, merge, trim, compress or rotate MOV 90 degrees, 180 degrees or 360 degrees.
  • Add special effects, subtitles, background music, text or photo to MOV movie.
  • Edit MOV as well as keep the same MOV video format or edit MOV as well as convert MOV to other video format like MP4, AVI, WMV etc
  • The most obvious feature: The above features will keep MOV video quality and at fast speed when editing MOV.
