visual timeline,frameline for editing of encoding from point a to b

Post by xov5dor »

Please describe what you would like to see added to HandBrake: a visual timeline,frameline for the removing of unwanted scenes. it could be incorporated into the preview window. a slider can be used that is linked to the image on the screen in the preview window. as you slide the image changes showing you where you are in the video with a frameline counter,timeline clock that increases or decreases depending on which direction you slide. an A/start button and a B/end button can be used for the points wanted. after the start and end points have been selected it's name numerically increases. a user can choose to rename the clip before sending it to the queue. also, after start and end points are selected an auto add to queue after selection points feature can be used which can be toggled on and off. if toggled on after a user selects B/end the clip is added to the queue automatically. with that feature clips are never forgotten to be added to the queue by the user after selection points.

Why would you like to see this added: handbrake calculates the complete time differently than media players. the difference in time between handbrake and media players makes it difficult to determine where the start and end of a wanted clip are. the current preview window is very close to having this functionality already.

What version of HandBrake are you currently running: nightly 20151013180857-b55283f-master (2015101401) 64bit

What operating system and version and you currently running (e.g. OSX 10.11, Windows 7, Ubuntu 14): Windows 7

"Cutting" is an editor feature which is outside the scope of the project. There are several technical issues in the way handbrake works that would limit the usefulness and accuracy of such a feature in HandBrake anyway. Seconds/Frames is not a good feature in HandBrake as it stands as it's not always accurate. It's pretty much best effort and isn't heavily used.
