    Does anyone on here put together visuals/loops to project whilst DJing?

    I want to put together a selection of crazed film clips to show at various Hellfire Video Club things… but am having great trouble (or, more likely, being a great spastic) in doing so… seems like it should be a simple thing?

    Anyone use any specific programmes (free and available for Mac) that can snip scenes out of films? I've tried "iDealshae Video" and "isjysoft Video converter" but hit a wall with both.

    Any help much appreciated...

        If you're on a mac & don't need to worry about audio, you can play the video on your desktop with VLC (or whatever you use other than Quicktime) & use Quicktime to record the window for the scene you want to use & then trim it.

        You should be able to do all this without upgrading to Quicktime Pro or whatever it's called so it should be free & ready to go.

            Did you get imovie with your mac? I think it comes installed on all machines. If so you can just google what you need to do and use that. They'll definitely be a weirdo on youtube with an informative video.

                That was my first thought, but can't import avi files (i think?). Which all my ones are....

                  Download Mpegstreamclip (it's free) and convert your .avi into .mov or whatever. Voila.

                    Thanks fopr all suggestions so far.

                    MpegStreamclip doesn't seem to work for me - all avi films i put in are just a blank/grey screen (?)

                    I'm currently transferring AVI films into MP4's so i can do it in iMovie - problem is opening the whole films in iMovie is taking forever (daft seeing as i'm only taking a minute of two from each film!)

                    There must be somewhere I can just convert a small section on the files into MPEGs to stop all this madness!!!

                    Any other ideas?

                        Weird. I tried it before suggesting it to you and it worked for me.

                        .avis work fine in FCP, but I guess you don't have it...

                        just google around for a 'video conversion software free download', one of mpegstremclip's competitors must have something that'll work for you.

                          Yeah, sounds it. I'll give that a go later on. It just took 40 minutes to open "Boxer's Omen" file in Imovei, so can't carry on doing it this silly way!
