Appending AVI

I'm often editing soundtrack (audio from another file) without altering the video (direct stream copy) - quick and lossless.

Sometimes the audio ends up not exactly the same length as the video. This doesn't seem to matter - until I start concatenating files. Ill-fitting audio in a segment will push the audio of the next segment out of sync.

Is there a simple way of trimming/expanding audio of an AVI file to fit, which doesn't ivolve extracting the audio and editing it in an audio editor?

Don't know about in Vdub, but in Avisynth you have the ++ operator to join clips, doing what you asked for. Nevertheless, it does require decoding/reencoding. I don't know of any tools that can do that in the compressed domain, but let's see what others know about.

Yes, thanks, in fact I'm looking for a ++ operation in VD - I guess there isn't one.

Suddernly occurred to me - easy to check in File Information which gives the length of both.

Do you know there is option Video->Select range->Cut off audio...
You should enable it to minimize a/v length differences. Other than that, there is nothing to help. Appending large amount of segments will definitely increase sync errors.

Thanks, no, didn't know that. All 3 boxes seem to be ticked by default, but alas doesn't help with concatenation.
