Utter crap that mostly does not work. Handbrake is much better imo.
And if you have some spare cash, buy iFmpeg.

This app is such garbage. The move from freeware to paid app on the crAPP Store, just seems like a lame grab at some money from unsuspecting dummies. Do not get this app. Instead, go find an unofficial download for VisualHub 1.34.1, use the Lion Updater, and you'll be set. You could also try VideoMonkey, or Handbrake, but stay away from ReduxEncoder!!

A full version number upgrade and they don't even explain what's changed? Clearly this is just an effort to get a little cash out of the halfassed effort these devs put in over the past 3 years that yielded exactly diddly squat.

supposed to be free forever, abandoned for over a year, and then dumped on the app store what i presume is just version 1.2.6 repackaged as version 2 .....of course there is no way of being sure because you cannot try without buying, no thanks

You are exactly right. ReduxEncoder is now a shameless money grab.

I see version 2.0 on the App Store but there's far too little information. 8^(

And the world still waits for a successor to VisualHub...

I doubt anyone would have believed the wait would have been so long and painful...

Kind of like the Great Pumpkin, I've got my doubts that we're ever going to SEE this mythical successor arrive...

I realize this is beta, but i never had much luck getting Visual Hub to do what it said it would, and it's the same with this.

Has potential so i hope its troubles get worked out.

Love it. I only do one thing with it though. Convert divx/xvid avis to play on my iphone. I can cue up a whole directory of files and just let it do it's thing :)

Ugly app icon though. It lacks any form of padding, and is just too large to fit in with the other icons on the dock. Not very elegant at all.

The interface is almost perfect. There's just a few items that need a little more polishing;
The "save to" input widget needs to be separated from the "Edit" button.
The progress indicator seems a little bit misaligned.
The start button is a bit fuzzy. Up/Downscaling issue?

Problem

When I take an avi & ask it to convert avi to dvd or burn to dvd, create a ts folder etc etc

It only creates an mpg file on every occasion.

Still using my paid for version of visual hub as this function works very well.

Rosenkrieger had trouble on 23 Sep 2009
I thought. Wow finally I get an updated version of "VisualHub", but hell now. The "converting" plain s*cks. Used a MOV File and wanted a MP4 - yeah I got an MP4, but out of 3:28 Minutes a 0:58 Minutes file was the result - WTF?!??

I then did the same conversion with VisualHub - smooth as silk.

Yeah its free - but if it doesn't work - why use it?!?

I get an error message while quitting : "AppleScript Error System Events got an error: Illegal comparison or logical. (-1726)".

I just opened the app, check the supported formats and browse the Advanced Panel. Nothing more...

I've been having quite a bit of trouble with ReduxEncoder. At first I was experiencing the error noted below on Leopard ("illegal comparison or logical"). Now on Snow Leopard (10.6.1), the old problem is gone away, but new issues have popped up. First I tried converting an XviD AVI file to DVD. The conversion to the MPG file went fine, but it would not proceed past that point to authoring the DVD structure. Whether I selected burnable image, VIDEO_TS folder, or burned DVD, after the conversion was done, "Authoring DVD" (or something like that) would pop up for a about a second above the progress bar, then it would claim the process was finished, leaving only the MPG file. Next I tried converting an H.264 MP4 file. With MEncoder decoding, it ran for about 5 minutes, then claimed it was finished. The result was a 400 MB partial MPG file. Trying the same conversion with VLC decoding never got past the "Starting conversion" phase. I know that ReduxEncoder is a work in progress, but I do hope that it reaches a fairly stable and usable state in the near future. It looks promising in many respects and is free, so I'm optimistic that it will turn out to be a worthy successor to the venerable VisualHub.
