About ChapterIt

AVT ChapterIt is a powerful tool to add and edit chapters of video files.

You can manually add, edit or remove chapters or use the built-in functions to automatically add chapters. If your movie fades to black between different parts you can let ChapterIt find those black frames to place the chapters there. Of course you can also import chapters.
