Edit your videos
in a fraction of the time.
Recut turns this...
with just a few clicks.
People love it! 😍
I knew getrecut.com is awesome, but it blew my freakin mind anyway.
I used to say that 1 minute of video takes 1 hour to make.
Well I just made 11 minute video in ~30 minutes. Recording and everything.
Great work @dceddia 👏👏👏
I absolutely LOVE Recut! I've been creating Youtube videos for over a year, and half of my time editing is spent doing the tedious things like editing out the silence / breaths between words. This was easily the best $100 I've ever spent.
I bought this in a heartbeat. It's going to save so much time editing screencasts.
Such a smart, simple app.
Thank you a MILLION for writing Recut. This is a tool that, after using it once, I would have paid $100 just for that one time. Thank you so much for developing and doing it well.
This tool REVOLUTIONIZES how I'm able to not only edit videos, but conceive and record them since it frees me up to not worry about dead time or bad takes. It paid for itself after one use. It’s stupid easy to use and is enabling me to produce more content, faster, and easier.
See how it works
Editing videos normally takes *forever*
Even after all the time planning and recording, you know you're in for a few more hours of fiddly editing.
If you're like many screencasters, YouTubers, and course creators I know, a big chunk of that time is spent slicing out the silent parts.
click ... split clip ... click ... split clip ... select the silence ... ripple delete
Over and over. Until you've got something like this...
Hundreds of tiny, fiddly, Hand-Crafted™ cuts.
Shortcuts and tricks don't cut it
You've tried all the strategies to make this faster...
- leaving long pauses, or clapping between takes
- using "markers" during recording to help find the "good takes" and eliminate the bad
- learning all the keyboard shortcuts to speed up your workflow
These all help quite a bit! But even with these tricks up your sleeve, removing silence is still a manual slog.
What if the computer did it for you?
How about this workflow, instead?
- Drag your video into Recut.
- Recut finds the silence automatically...
- ...and cuts the video into clips for you.
- Hit Export to send the clips to your favorite editor
(or save off an edited video)
Bye-bye silence 👋, hello free time.
Recut finds silence and deletes it, so you can spend less time doing tedious editing.
Here it is in its natural habitat, cutting a 10 minute recording down to 5:22.
Instant Live Preview
Hit Play and immediately hear how it sounds, skipping over the silent parts, without waiting for an export.
Edit Audio, Too
Recut works on audio files too, so you can import your podcasts (or long lecture recordings) and cut out all the pauses with a few clicks.
Cut the Bad Takes
A quick click + Delete will remove any audible parts that you wish didn't exist.
Don't Cut Everything!
If you have some important silent parts – like showing something on screen, or pausing for dramatic effect – you can tell Recut to keep them.
Tweak the "padding" between cuts to give your words a little breathing room, or cram it together withzerobreaksbetweenwords if you want.
Export the Timeline
Auto-delete the silence using Recut, then export the cut list to Final Cut Pro, DaVinci Resolve, ScreenFlow, or Adobe Premiere.
The nondestructive export is perfect when you have more editing to do after the silence is gone.
Export Video or Audio
You can export a new video or audio file right from Recut – without modifying your original.
Works with audio, too
Got a podcast to edit? Or maybe a long call you want to cut down to size.
Drag that file right into Recut :)
Export the timeline to edit in other apps
Your original recording is never modified — this is nondestructive editing.
Recut can export the cutlist to your favorite app, where you can do the final edits, audio adjustments, screen annotations, and whatever else you normally do.
You've probably invested a lot of hours learning your current set of tools. Recut won't make you throw them away.
Any apps that can import XML or EDL cut lists should work with Recut.
Or, export directly
You can also export an edited .mp4 video or .m4a audio file right from Recut.
It's a fresh copy, with silence removed, and leaves your original recording untouched.
Because honestly who has time for trimming silence by hand.
What's the refund policy?
I offer a 30-day money back guarantee. If Recut doesn't suit your needs, just send an email to email@example.com and I'll send you a full refund.
What operating systems does Recut support?
Recut is a native app built for the Mac, and it runs on macOS 10.13 High Sierra up through the latest Big Sur.
It also natively supports the new Apple Silicon M1 chips, and I've heard from testers that the export is very fast ⚡
Recut doesn't run on Windows or Linux or iOS or Android – sorry!
What video formats can Recut open?
Recut can open anything that QuickTime can play. That's most MP4 and MOV files, some AVI files, and a whole bunch of audio formats.
It can't open...
- raw ScreenFlow recordings (but you can export those to MP4)
- other things that won't open in QuickTime 😉
Can I edit my podcast (or other audio) with Recut?
Yes! Recut can open any of the audio formats that QuickTime can handle.
You can export the cut list, or export the edited audio as an .m4a file. (only M4A is supported right now)
What formats can Recut export to?
Recut exports XML and EDL files for use in apps like Adobe Premiere and DaVinci Resolve, and FCPXML for Final Cut Pro. These contain the cut list to tell the apps where to create clips.
It can also create a ScreenFlow project with all of the cuts pre-applied.
If you just want the video or audio, export an MP4 or M4A with the silence stripped out.
It doesn't yet support transcoding to other formats/sizes/qualities.
Can Recut handle multiple files?
Multi-track + multi-cam support are on the roadmap, but right now it only supports a single video or audio file, and works on one file at a time.
If your workflow involves multiple cameras, or recording video + audio separately, you'd need to assemble the composition and merge it down to a single file before Recut could work with it.
Is Recut a full-featured video editor?
Recut is great at finding and removing silence, but it's a very focused tool.
Recut does support exporting the timeline of edits to other apps for fine tuning, though, so you can start with Recut and finish with your favorite tool.
Will Recut fit my workflow?
Everyone has a different way of working, and it's hard to know if a piece of software will fit until you try it out.
The best way to find out is to download the trial. You can get a feel for how it works with your videos, and take the screen recorder for a spin.
Does Recut have [awesome feature xyz]?
I'm gonna be totally honest with you: Recut doesn't have a lot of features. Not yet, anyway ;)
Here are some things that Recut can't do right now:
- batch editing
- multi-track editing
- remove "ums" and "ahs"
- record only a portion of the screen
- record your webcam along with the screen
- fancy video overlays...
- or really, any kind of video overlays
- ...plenty more
As a solo developer with limited time, I wanted to prioritize getting something useful into people's hands now, rather than striving for something perfect in the far future.
If Recut doesn't fit your needs yet, keep checking back! It'll keep getting better.
Who made this?
Making all those hours of screencasts taught me a few things. One of those was that editing videos takes forever 😅
I created Recut to make the editing process easier for myself and other creators.
When editing is fast, you can publish more often. Hitting Record feels easier when you know it'll be easy to remove mistakes.
Give Recut a try and see how much it can speed up your workflow!
