Bigasoft ASF Converter 3.7
Bigasoft ASF Converter can help you convert your ASF files into other formats. The application doesn't really restrict the types of files that you can open, so you will be able to load files encoded using codecs other than ASF as well. In fact, I did my testing of the application with an MKV file that I converted into ASF. The MKV file had a resolution of 720p, but unfortunately the ASF conversion profile didn't support that resolution. Other conversion profiles do let you use a resolution of 1280x720, though.
The list of supported output formats is long. The most popular formats are there, including MKV, H.264, MPEG-4 and DivX. You can also convert your video clips into audio files. The application comes with a video editor that lets you trim and crop your videos and adjust brightness, contrast and saturation.
Regarding its performance, Bigasoft ASF Converter managed to convert a 1-minute MKV file into ASF in less than 30 seconds, which isn't bad. The conversion process will take longer if your target format uses a resolution of 720p or higher, though.
In conclusion, this application can be used as a general-purpose converter because it doesn't limit the formats that you can open and it has good output format support. There are also conversion profiles for many devices. The graphical user interface is original and it is functional, which is always a plus for me.
