Any Video Converter Professional is a suite of tools intended for video conversion, editing, and playback. Moreover, it allows creating your own DVDs. The program’s interface is very similar to those of many other media converters and it has tabs that serve to access its main functions.
The converter can import media from multiple sources. First, there is the possibility to open an impressive list of formats. Second, the program can also process DVD video directly from the disc reader as well as from a folder or ISO file. Third, it is a good thing that it can also download Internet video by simply providing the URL. Regrettably, it cannot record video from the screen or a webcam, which is supported by other software of the same type.
Any Video Converter Professional supports various basic editing operations. For instance, you can add external subtitles. Likewise, if the source video has various audio tracks, you can pick the desired one. What is more, you can even substitute the original audio by another taken from an external file. It also allows some trimming and merging operations, which you can combine to create a new composition. Luckily, the tool can extract various segments from the same source clip. Finally, it is also possible to crop or rotate the video frame. Similarly, you can add such effects as noise, cartoon and sharpen as well as manually adjust brightness, contrast, and saturation.
Setting output parameters is for many users the worst part of converting media. So, it is good news that you do not need to worry about it because this program comes with multiple profiles that avoid compatibility problems with the intended playback device. However, this does not mean that advanced users cannot customize the conversion parameters to meet their exact needs. The program can process clips in batches, but it is a pity that you cannot use individual conversion profiles.
The product may also come in handy when you want to create your own video DVD discs. In this respect, it is excellent that the program can convert video according to standards, like NTSC, PAL, and AVCHD. Likewise, it lets you design DVD menus based on several nice templates. Finally, there is a built-in player, which, unfortunately, does not seem to work properly.
In short, Any Video Converter Professional is a useful and versatile program as to video conversion and DVD creation. As for editing and playback, though, it is not as powerful. The product is free to try but the length of the output video is limited to three minutes only.
