1. Hello guys, I have some video files of different formats(H264,mp4) and sizes all i want to do is just trim some parts of the clip and save as it is...(without changing its formats and size etc)it seems very simple unfortunately most of the software like Premiere pro etc not able to do this..have to go through all the rendering stuff etc.

2. I've seen a number of threads about cutting or trimming files, but suppose I have an hour long video, and I just want to extract a 30 second section of that video into a new file, but without any reencoding? Is it possible, and what is the best tool in your experience for it? The reason I want to do this is to avoid having to make duplicate copies of full video files just to use a tiny portion of them in another project.
