Thank you. I am not familiar with Perl and would understand more from a
shell or Python script. Which ones do you mean? I've done a bit of
searching of the website and there's a hodgepodge of scripts at
https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Transcode_Video, none of which says clearly
whether it works for HD.

It seems almost impossible to get the cutting exactly right though for

Pity. If it has to be such a faff I may give up on doing it on Linux and
may resort to Premiere, for the few things I really need to export for work.
