  • More broadcasting and editing outputs: up to full HD 1080p (aka "Full HD").
  • Full customized access to "comb effects" management : remove comb effects while preserving non-interlaced parts, force deinterlacing, etc.
  • Editing: convert to your favorite ProRes codec.
Features:
  • Standard, Exclusive Feature: Adaptation to your Television Standard (videos will be conformed ...but without jerking).
  • Aspect: Your movies will no more be deformed after encoding. Exclusive Feature: ...even though your videos need a more complex display (automatic detection and management of anamorphic files).
  • Aspect, Exclusive Feature: Ability to turn your videos from "square screen" to "wide screen" (and vice versa).
  • Broadcasting: To convert your videos for all your devices: from your Android mobile to your new connected HD television!
  • Editing: To convert your video for Professional editing in FCPX (or in older versions of Final Cut Pro).
  • Editing: To convert your videos for editing in iMovie (for every versions).
  • Interlacing, Exclusive Feature: you never encounter "comb effects" during playback, and without degrading quality like others softs do (Automatic management, according to the device used to play the video).

  • Easy Mode / beginners: video is very technical domain, but your don't have to be an expert about video or specifications, to obtain a good result... Exclusive Feature: The Easy Mode do not damage the quality of your videos (automations are set to take over your worries)
  • "Professional" really means something here (it's usually used as a bogus commercial argument for beginners, and only means the add of some non-understandable features only for geeks). MovieConverter integrates some helpful and easily usable pro exclusive Feature:
    • To visually check your "comb effects" and their readout order.
    • To correct the framerate of a buggy converted video.
    • To correct audio loudness, according to the professional broadcasting TV channels need...
  • Expert: Do it more!
    • Clean your videos.
    • Making videos from internet less blurry.
    • Remove the logo of a TV channel.
    • (To reserve to experts:) MovieConverter has many automations which ensure your quality conversion... But you can override or change them too.
  • DVD-VIDEO disc: Make your settings in less than three minutes and get a chapterized DVD, with menus in full-screen and animated buttons (and burn it directly from the app). Readable onto a home DVD Player connected to every television (Exclusive Feature: onto Granny's one and her old square TV, or onto Uncle's big HD TV).
Other Features:
  • Preview result (before starting the encoding ;-))
  • Some Presets (some are provided but you can easily create your own).
  • Batch processing.
  • Trim the beginning of the video (to remove unwanted pre-programs).
  • Choose your bitrate (the quality/disk weight ratio of your converted file).
  • Ability to automatically limit the bitrate (so, your final video fits well on a disk ;-)).
  • Several presets "quality/disk weight ratio".
  • Ability to encode in black-and-white.
  • And 4 additional mini-applications to edit your videos "to DVD". The "Studio" modules:
    • Multiplex
    • Demux
    • Subtitle
    • Modify the aspect without re-encoding

a progressive PAL will be converted to NTSC FILM with a slowdown (reverse the process of transferring a movie from theater to PAL video) an interlaced PAL will be converted to NTSC Video without duration change (but with calculation of new fields) ...just try it ;)

2 versions of the app are available onto the site: - 64-bit version : for OS X.7 (Lion) and more - 32-bit version: for OS X.5 (Leopard, PPC or Intel processors) and more Both versions have the same features, but each one is optimized for your old or new computer!

Am I wrong, or is this app not capable of converting to any formats other than .mpg or editable formats like .dv? It cannot convert a DVD or any other type of movie file to H.264 .mp4/.mkv, or .avi (which sucks anyway), or Flash, or QuickTime, etc.?

Hi, the old version 1 was limited to standard definition. Here is the new version 2 … fully rewrite and no longer limited to just a few -old- outputs ;)

The splitting of this app into 2 different output 'modules' — Editing and Broadcasting — has always annoyed me. These functional categorizations are not organic, and no other apps use such distinctions. I like to have all of an app's capabilities available to me all the time so I can select the one I want without having to search through its weird modules to find it. And if I complete one function and want to use a completely different one, I don't want to then search through the modules again to find it. And it's particularly frustrating that there's no easy way to go back and select between the two modules (at least none that I can discern, since the icons make no sense). Maybe that's why I have used this a total of perhaps 5 times since getting a 1.6 license several years ago, and I actually encoded files with it only twice because I got frustrated and switched to another program the other 3 times. Unfortunately, the new version continues with the Editing and Broadcasting organizational scheme, so I won't be updating my license for this new version.

The app is not "abandonware", but the old 1.6 version is ;-) The final 2.0 version will come soon, a beta is available onto the site. The 2.0 version is -of course- compliant with OSX: Mountain Lion (10.8), Lion (10.7), Snow Leopard (10.6) and Leopard (10.5) …and compliant with old computer PPC (on Mac Os X 10.5) too. good videos

I’m very pleased to hear that! Glad we haven’t lost another good developer to the vagaries of Lion. In any case, OS X is again a good platform for video production (since Mountain Lion), but a number of apps have not yet made the leap — Good on ‘ya.

Although the UI is pretty, it's confusing as hell and the Help files are impossible to understand. But it's one of only 2 apps I know of that get PAL to NTSC standards conversion right (the other is the free JES Deinterlacer). It needs MUCH better Help files and UI clarification, better file format support (it doesn't accept Matroska and other common file types), and an update of all the open source code it uses. But if the dev did all that, I'd buy it AGAIN. However, with iFFmpeg at $10, he'd really have to get everything right this time.

you are -partialy- right :-D …about UI clarification and some updates (but not about mkv files: the app already accept them, if it does not accept YOUT file, contact me directly to see what happened) A brand-new-(but beta) version will be released soon: with a better ergonomy ;-) At first time, they will be no new visible features in this app (new features will be available in the release version only) bye

I've owned this app for nearly 3 years, and I still can't get used to its bizarre interface. When I occasionally (and accidentally) hit upon the correct settings, it produces wonderful results, but it's just too confusing to consistently set it up right, especially if you don't use it regularly. It desperately needs an update, so hopefully the dev will take that opportunity to rework its UI to follow more standard guidelines, or at the very least have the Help files rewritten by a native English speaker to make them more intelligible (I speak fluent French and English but still struggle with it). It's even difficult to determine what it can and cannot do - partly because of the UI and partly because of its very poorly written Help files. Developer, please don't dismiss my comments about your UI. That is a consistent complaint of many commenters here, so please reconsider MCS's design.

Hi "please reconsider MCS's design" : yes, and I reconsidered it yet (the app wasn't ergonomic enough) But I don't understand your complain about Help (an native english speaker corrected help). But the help is still too technical, so too boring (so, not very functional for lambda users) See you after the new version ;)

Please understand that I am anything BUT a "lambda" user (a term not really used in American English). As an academic documentary filmmaker, I have over 20 applications for various types of video transcoding and manipulation, and I use them at least a couple of times per week, though iFFmpeg has replaced several of the older ones. My criticism about MCS's organization — with respect — comes from someone with over 11 years of experience using FFMPEG via CLI on 3 different flavors of UNIX and 9 years on OS X, not to mention many years with QT Pro, Final Cut Pro and Compressor, Sorenson Squeeze, MainConcept Reference, Episode Pro and several others.

Hi, Did you read the description on this page? (aka the app is Shareware) Did you read the "splash screen" at launch time? (saying that -whitout registration- this app limits encoding to 3 minutes long) And if the concern was elsewhere, so contact me directly and explain what happened ;-). PS: thanks for the "no feedback" but the 2 stars bye

Still one of the best out there. I find I try all the programmes but if I ever have problems this always sorts them out 9 times out of 10. Great little programme.
