Looking for simple DV editor that doesn't do any recompres..

I'm working on a simple project that needs to have some
DV material trimmed, I'd like to avoid any editor that
decompresses and then recompresses it. In other words I'm
looking for a "native" dv editor.

A perfect tool would just be some kind of preview window
where I could see the movie and a timeline where I could
mark the cut points.

Are there any tools like this? Please send replies to
the newsgroup.

Thanks.

Most (all?) NLE applications I've ever heard of work
like that. The only time the DV is "rendered" (which
involves "recompression") is where you *change* the
image (special effect, title overlay, etc.)

Virtualdub will allow you to trim and cut without recompressing. It
makes a bit-for-bit copy of what you select. No codec is engaged when
you use it in Direct Stream Copy mode.

Perfect for what you need!

<www.virtualdub.org> it is freeware

It only supports VFW-type AVI's, which mine aren't.

Turns out that the free microsoft movie maker does exactly what I
want, it doesn't re-render the DV is the output format is set
correctly.
