I bought this to convert some files to MPEG-1 in a hurry. It all worked reliably and well, and I was very pleased. I think it offers great value for money. However it would be nice if the dimensions of the input video were automatically set as the output to save some time. Also if presets could be used and modified without saving a new preset - like an ad hoc setting based on a preset, that would add some great functionality.
Its perfect! The converting is fast and no negative effects will happen if done converting. So its working so well! Luv it!
So fast at converting and no quality lost from what I can see. I don't usually leave reviews and was a bit worried about purchasing this but then it blew my expectations out of the water.
You know all those converters that only do a fraction of what you want? This program is the best software buy i've made for my mac. It does everything I need to make gifs, edit files, and make dvd's.
Just got the update v3.5.2 and I'm blown away by how good this is!
Very happy with this program. Fast conversion of all my old mpeg home movies to mov format for easy editing in iMovie. The batch conversion feature is really handy and the quality of the converted videos is very good. I like the GUI - so easy to use. Well worth the price.
I've tried sooo many video conversion tools over the years, and they take forever and produce terrible quality. To show how good this bit of software is I really only need to give one example... 14 minutes to convert a 3.9gb 1280px mkv to mp4... with NO LOSS in quality... and on a 7 year old Mac Mini!!! I don't know what sort of insane developers you have and what they've been swiping from Gandalfs soggy pockets to get the conversion speeds this quick, but I've genuinely never been more impressed with a bit of software! So go give them all a payrise ;) On top of that (although the speed an quality make it a must buy on their own), there's loads of options, really simple and clear to use, and a lovely UI on top of it all. Can't recommend this enough!!
