    VLC's track extracting / remuxing / reconverting capabilities leave a lot to be desired. I don't recommend using it.

    The workflow you should need to do:

    - remux with Subler to mp4 / m4v / mov

    - edit / trim the resulting and (unlike MKV - hence the need for a MKV->mp4 conversion) already-compatible footage with any mp4 / m4v / mov editor: QuickTime 7 Pro, avidemux etc.

    Does Quicktime not support MKV files?? And how good is Avidemux?? Why do I need an app like Subler first? Is there not one app that would do all of it without being too expensive like Final Cut?

    It does.

    Both are much better at remuxing / stream extraction than most other tools, particularly the, remuxing-wise, pretty incapable VLC.
