    Sorry all bit of a noob question but if I edit a h.264 .mov file (just to cut a section out) in QTP and then just save as "self contained movie" does it re-encode the whole thing or is it effectively lossless?

    Thanks,

    wysi

    To compress you need to export. Saving from the "save as" command is lossless.

    Magic, thanks. Exactly what I was looking for then as I'm just looking to segment something which I'm already okay with on a size/quality front.
