I tried the demo version of Episode after feeling very limited by the lack of certain higher end features on applications like VisualHub and AudialHub, which i used for video and audio conversion respectively. They were both amazing applications for most purposes but have now regrettably been discontinued. Despite the extremely limiting 20 second clip demo conversions i was extremely impressed by the clean interface, smooth and uncomplicated conversion workflow, wide choice of codecs and presets, and the speed and quality of the results. This is definitely software that does what i need, and does it well, but there is one thing that is preventing me from purchasing. Yes the price is very high considering there are many decent cheap (or free) video converters out there, but you get what you pay for and Episode is a high end application with a smooth professional feel to it... So why then do they cripple their $500 high end software by imposing a 25 item batch limit?!?! I mean you have this amazing conversion engine which is the same on the desktop and pro versions, and i can understand paying extra for the pro version to gain the pro features like high quality broadcast and surround applications, but for $500 i would expect unlimited batch processing and wont pay this price for such a limitation.

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.

For aspect ratio issues the cause is a flag bug in quicktime. I have had success fixing these with Anamorphicizer, which seems to have fallen off these pages but is easily found by the Goog. I have not used Episode but am looking for optimum x264 encoders
