4Videosoft AVI Converter for Mac is an application that can help you convert almost any video and audio format to AVI, MPG, TS, AAC, AC3, M4A, MP3, MP2, and WAV.
The well-structured interface eases your work with the program. Adding files to the conversion list can be done by selecting the "Open file" or "Open folder" options, or much easier, by drag-and-drop. This tool comes with an impressive collection of options. You have the ability to merge all the files from the list pane into a single one (obviously, the condition is all to have the same format). The editing function allows you to add some effects to the video, such as brightness, saturation, or volume. At the same time, you can crop part of an image, or you can trim the video taking into account the timings you specify. You are able to put your personal mark on the video by adding a watermark which can be a text or a picture. The watermark can be customized in terms of dimensions and transparency, and of course, you can place it anywhere you want on the screen. To complete the range of options, the app has the ability to take snapshots anytime you want. These snapshots are saved as one of the three available formats (JPEG, PNG and BMP). Every time you make setting changes, the program allows you to view instantly the last modifications and the adjustments. Moreover, you can apply the same changes to all the videos or to each movie separately.
When you consider that you are done with the settings, you can choose the desired format, and the device supporting it. No matter the format you select, you can set the resolution, the video/audio bitrate, the sample rate or the frame rate.
The application functions well, meaning that I didn’t encounter any problem when converting or editing. Working with the program went easily, but since maximizing the editing window is not available, you may find it tiring when you have high resolution movies. But even with this small negative aspect, I think the program is worth trying.
- User-friendly interface
- Impressive collection of options
- The editing window can't be maximized
