I have stream VODs(recordings) of multiple hours in length which lag my program when I try to edit them.

When I edit a shorter video there is no lag so I know it's only because my pc cant handle that many hours.

Most of the time I only need a few minutes out of this VOD, so I wanted to ask is there a way to shorten the imported video, so there is no, for example, 5 hour long video in the project folder(?). If this isn't possible within the program does anyone maybe know about a software that lets you cut up video's without losing quality when exporting?

 

Thank in advance,

If you're not using the audio, I think you can load the clip in the source monitor and mark an in and out and then export from in to out using a high quality all iframe codec like prores hq.  This should maintain the quaity while converting to a constant frame rate (I think).  The issue is probably caused by variable frame rate sources...  which can cause intermittent unpredictable issues.   If you're using OBS to do a screen recording, I think you can set your recordings to be constant frame rate...  

 

If you need the audio, and want to just work with short sections, I don't know how to fix this...  but maybe someone else here has a solution.

you also. might try working with blackmagic design's davinci resolve which has a free version.  Not sure whether resolve has issues with vfr, but worth a shot.
