is a video and graphic converter. In other words, it provides ability
to convert movies and pictures from one format to another.
To access the basic conversion settings, open the "Profile
Settings" dialog window. In the Main section you can adjust the following
Output format - the format the source files
will be converted to.
Frames per second - the frame rate, or the
number of frames used to represent one second of the produced video file.
This parameter is not available when one of the graphic formats is selected
above. It take one of the following values:
Keep original frame
rate - uses the source file's frame rate.
15 fps (AVI standard).
23.98 fps (NTSC film).
24 fps (film).
25 fps (PAL).
30 fps (NTSC).
User defined - enables
to enter a custom frame rate in the field on the right.
- if enabled, the frame rate compensation mechanism will be used in case
of reduction of frame rate (as compared with the source file's one).
The increase of the frame
rate value (relative to the source file's one) will certainly not improve
the video quality. Moreover, in this case the quality may be even lost,
since a less number of bits will be used for representation of every produced
The decrease of the frame
rate value may improve the quality of every single frame and decrease
the size of the produced video (since it will include less number of frames
as compared to the source video). But at that some of the source frames
will be inevitably lost (use the "Framerate
smoothness" parameter to minimize the losses), and the produced
file may play jerkily.
We recommend to use the
original frame rate value, unless you are going to carry out a specific
Include audio stream - if enabled,
the source file's audio stream will be processed and included in the produced
file. In this case the Audio section becomes available.
Below you can add the following
information to the header of any processed file:
If the "Output
format" parameter is set to one of the video formats, you are
provided access to the Video and Audio sections, where you can set parameters
of the video and audio codec.
We recommend you to read
the "Output Format Settings" chapter to learn more about the
video and audio codec settings.
