I'm looking for a program that lets me view each and every frame of a video, and edit / delete specific ones.

I want the program to:

  • be free
  • allow me to view each frame and delete a group of them by selection
  • run on Windows 7 64-bit (even better, OSX 10.6.8 :)
  • have a GUI
  • be compatible with major video formats, specifically .mov files

Bonuses:

  • add transitions between frames
  • edit frames by changing color/saturation/blur etc. of each frame

Note: I'm not looking for a program to export frames as pictures and save them. I'm looking for a program that allows me to view each frame, delete a group of frames, and hopefully draw on them, and then save the video again.

You can use Avidemux:

  • free and open source
  • Windows/Linux/Mac
  • GUI
  • allows to view each frame and delete a group of them by selection
  • compatible with major video formats (usually no need to install any additional codec)

  • it can also export frames to png / jpg / bmp – Stuart Cardall Oct 5 '18 at 9:00
  • As I remember this also can read/restore corrupted files. Such that make VirtualDub crash. – Nakilon Sep 1 '19 at 4:37

You can use VirtualDub:

  • free and open source
  • Windows
  • GUI
  • allows to view each frame and delete a group of them by selection:

  • compatible with major video formats such as .mov files: you need to download some import plugins/filters. I personally use the FFMPEG Input Driver (32-bit, I had issues with 64-bit) which provides support for 31 video formats

  • You still like VirtualDub? The last verision of virualdub was on 2013. – Aminadav Glickshtein Feb 24 '16 at 10:37
  • @Amina Well it's good enough for my needs :) I guess I would use Adobe Premiere Pro if I needed more features. – Franck Dernoncourt Feb 24 '16 at 15:45
