Seperating sequences from file

Hi! I've been wondering if it's possible to 'remove' the opening or ending sequence from a normal anime episode and make it into a new MPG or AVI file. If I'm being too vague, please say so. Thanks for any help you guys can give.

Yeah it's possible. For that you could do some playing around with VirtualDub(Mod).

VirtualDubMod is at www.sf.net/projects/virtualdubmod/

You can select a range to work on (say, mark the start of your range where the ep actually begins, and the end of your range where the ep ends), and then save all that as a new file. I think the audio carries over automatically too.

Just be sure to set the video to Direct Stream Copy to save time, unless you want to do a complete reencode.

You can also append video clips to other video clips with VirtualDubMod.

(I've lost my work several times when reencoding files due to a crash.) Of course, if you're feeling adventurous, alpha software can be fun.

Okay... I got it to work, but the file comes out HUGE (around 1229 megabytes for about a minute and a half of the video). Is that how it's supposed to be?

Thanks again.

You have the video option as "full processing mode" and no compression. Change it to "direct stream copy" or if you're doing changes to the source video, select an appropriate compression codec.
