I’m using the FlashBack Software for screen recording. In order to keep the highest quality I used to export the .fbr files into .avi using the Microsoft Video 1 codec. The problem was that the exported files were so huge that made editing them in Shotcut unbelievably slow and painful.
I have recently figured out that I can also use the XVid codec with quite the same quality result but maybe on tenth of size. Since then the editing speed have improved significantly.
The problem is that I sometimes need to go back and make some changes to the old, already edited videos which is really painful. In addition the original .avi videos steal huge unnecessary hard disk space.
Is it possible to export the editing meta data i.e. cutting, splitting, speed changes, filters etc. into a file and then import it into anther project and apply it?
If possible, I could export my .fbr videos again but this time with XVid codec and then import and apply the editing meta data to them. This way I get the videos edited without having to start from scratch. I also can free up a lot of space on the hard drive.
