This application is designed to help you convert DVD files into MP4 and MOV. In addition, you can extract the audio of your DVDs so that you can save it into popular formats, such as MP3, AAC, and AC3. This way, you have the chance to enjoy your favorite movies and soundtracks on a wider range of platforms that support common video and audio formats.
The program opens with a simple interface that resembles most converters. The tool allows you to load files directly from a DVD disc or from DVD and ISO folders already stored on your Mac. Before determining the output format, you can preview the imported files within the app and take snapshots while playing back the video. The utility provides easily-selectable output profiles that can be fine-tuned in terms of video and audio encoding settings. Prior to enabling the conversion, you can edit your videos so that the results meet your needs. Therefore, you can increase the audio volume or mute it gradually, add subtitles in case the original files lack them, trim video frames, and crop the displayed image to custom sizes. Unfortunately, the tool doesn't let you apply watermark protection or luminosity effects to your videos, and it doesn't support replacing the original audio with an external soundtrack.
To conclude, MacX Free DVD to MP4 Converter for Mac offers a simple and handy solution to optimize DVD files for playback on various platforms. The video editing features may not be spectacular, yet they are satisfactory for home use.
