    Hi guys,

    Total noob switcher question here...
    I have an mpeg1 file that's over an hour long, and I'd like to clip out a 20 minute segment and re-save it as mpeg1.....
    Any free app to do this? I can't appear to import to imovie, and I can't figure out how to do it in final cut express (Just got it, and need to do this in a hurry).

    Any help guys? :confused:

    Ok in fcp express, hit apple I, then select the clip you want. Now drag clip to timeline from bin which should be your top left window. How go to the point u want to start from and hit I then the point u want to be the end of the 20 min segment and hit O. Now go to file - export- quicktime movie. That should be it.

    Alternatively, in QuickTime Player you can highlight the section you want, Copy, New, Paste :)

    Hmm, you're right, there's no MPEG editing in QT.
