with the size of HAP files it looks like only using exactly what you need is super important. at the moment my process is:
- trim video in quicktime to make it close to what i need
- convert to HAP file then refine start and end points in the eclip. trigger the video - launch mode is gate, quantisation - none. this helps to ensure the start point is dead on.
3.reconvert to HAP with econvert to lose all the stuff i dont need
is this the most efficient way? do i lose quality by encoding twice?
