Too much expensive, it has unique implementations and a very complete list of codecs, but it's full of bugs, cluster encoding very rarely works, windows version crashes all the time, some times don't even start up. And the lack of support is amazing, The company sold Episode 6 as Snow Leopard compatible, then on the updates changed the system requirements of the installer for OS X 10.7 but it can be installed correctly on Mac OS X if you change the minimum requirements plist of the installer. At least they should support the Snow Leopard until version 6 bugs were fixed!

An Encoding application I am learning to appreciate more and more. It has a bit of a learning curve, but is quite powerful.

Hey telestream: The screenshot is supposed to get LARGER when clicked. I can't read a single thing in it because it's too small.

Crashed at opening on Lion. Episode Pro latest version will open momentarily and close. It's not comp[atible with Lion! Price at US$ 995 is way to ridiculous
