The Smart Cutter does have the 'link' function you need. There is a 'link' button beneath the record list, this can merge all the cuts together into one single .ts file.
The typical procedure I suggest will be:
first open movie file.
after setting cut points, press button 'addlist'; repeat such operation to add other cuts;
when all segments set, press button 'Record List'. Now, each segment will be transcoded into a new file. If MERGE needed, lighten the button 'link'(this is what you need) before pressing the button 'Record List'.
I think this will answer your demand. If you have any further question, feel free to contact me.
I have used this procedure and it works fine....but it still converts to mpg. There's no option that I can see that will let the completed merge remain a TS file.
Am I missing something?
