"EXACTLY what i needed: CUT & TRIM files while preserving original format!"

This is great, after searching high and low this was it. i Hated programsa that would let me trim and edit but them reencode the video and change things like the aspect ratio,quality etc. This was fantastic i got to trim an MP4 and keep EVERYTHING the same besides what i cut!
