I am using the trim filter to cut out portions of my input pad that I do not want. I cannot use the -ss or -t option because I have to do trimming inside the filter-graph.

Here is my trim usage

trim=start=4:duration=4

The source is 10 seconds long, I just want to retrieve the portion starting at 4th second till 8th second. I get it with the above filter usage, but the output is still 10 seconds long with the trimmed out portions at the start and the end shown as "static" or paused frames. How do I get rid of those?

Edit: I was able to cut out the static frames at the start by using setpts=PTS-STARTPTS but what it did was, it added that extra duration at the end.

Here is my full command with output

Edit 2: My question was simplified for better understanding of the issue, my actual movie making command is as follows

ffmpeg.exe -y -i C:\Temp\del\source\1.mov -i C:\Temp\del\source\2.mov  -i C:\Temp\del\source\3.mov  -filter_complex "[0:v]drawtext=fontfile=/Windows/Fonts/ARLRDBD.ttf:fontsize=80:x=10:y=10:text='Title Goes Here':fontcolor=white@0.8:box=1:boxcolor=black@0.5:enable='between(t,12,18)'[first];[1:v]trim=start=4:duration=4,setpts=PTS-STARTPTS[second];[2:v]drawtext=fontfile=/Windows/Fonts/ARLRDBD.ttf:fontsize=80:x=10:y=10:text='Thank you for watching':fontcolor=white@0.8:box=1:boxcolor=black@0.5:enable='between(t,0,1)'[third]; [first][second][third] concat=n=3:v=1"
  • Show the full command and console output. – Gyan Dec 24 '16 at 19:33

Since there is an audio stream present which is included in the output, you need to either disable that or trim it as well.

With audio trimmed:

ffmpeg -y -i source\6.MOV -vf "trim=start=4:end=8,setpts=PTS-STARTPTS" -af "atrim=start=4:end=8,asetpts=PTS-STARTPTS"  out\test.mov

Audio disabled:

ffmpeg -y -i source\6.MOV -vf "trim=start=4:end=8,setpts=PTS-STARTPTS" -an out\test.mov
  • My question is simplified, I have this trim filter in the middle of a filter-graph in my filter_complex script. How can I remove/disable the audio? I don't really need it. – fahadash Dec 24 '16 at 19:43
  • Add -an as in 2nd command. – Gyan Dec 24 '16 at 19:44
  • I have to disable the sound and output the trim output to an output [pad]. My actual ffmpeg command is huge, this trimming is one small part of it. Is there any other filter I have to combine with trim to get rid of the audio? – fahadash Dec 24 '16 at 19:45
  • No, just add -an – Gyan Dec 24 '16 at 19:46
  • I have a huge -filter_complex script dealing with multiple sources. I need to remove audio only from this clip in question. -an is disabling audio from the whole output. – fahadash Dec 24 '16 at 19:49
