Aunsoft Final Mate is a video edition and conversion tool that was designed to be a companion program for Sony, Canon, Panasonic and JVC camcorders. With it, you can import videos recorded with your camcorder. Then, many things can be done with them. Different videos can be merged together into one clip, they can be trimmed and cropped and then converted to a new format. The app supports a few input formats, such as MTS, M2TS, TOD, MOD and AVCHD. The output format support is quite good, and most modern formats are available. If you don't want to use the application's editing features, you can just use it as a video converter.
The graphical user interface is a little more complex than what you are used to seeing in video converters, but after a few minutes using the application, you will feel very comfortable with it. It is divided into several panes that serve different functions. There is a pane where your connected camcorders will be listed so that you can import media easily. Then, you have a timeline at the bottom that you can use as a visual guide when editing video. The conversion format selection menu will be accessible from a button that is located next to your files in the movies pane.
In conclusion, Aunsoft Final Mate is a very comprehensive companion app for camcorders. It has a lot of features, which are all listed on the developer's website. The only thing that I would add is some on-screen instructions on what each part of the application does for beginner users.
