Permute

3.3.7
08 October 2019

Easy-to-use, drag-and-drop video conversion.

Overview

Permute offers easy-to-use drag-and-drop video conversion.

Features:
  • Easy to Use - built from the ground up, Permute is a perfect example of what a Mac app should be. With a gorgeous interface and drag & drop simplicity no need for complicated options.
  • Insanely Fast - Permute was engineered to be incredibly fast. Let us take care of the hard stuff. Just select the video format you want and it’ll be done faster than you can say "hardware acceleration" - MP4 and HEVC presets now take advantage of your machine's hardware acceleration capabitlities, speeding up HEVC conversions more than 3 times over previous versions of Permute!
  • PDF Support - Permute 3 now includes support for stitching multiple images into a single PDF.
  • Everything Included - It doesn’t matter if you’re converting home movies or processing images. Permute can do it all. We support nearly every format and have plenty of device presets to choose from.
  • Looks Amazing - Whether you use dark mode or not, Permute will look amazing. Taking advantage of the modern technologies, Permute will even change its icon in dark mode.
  • Keep the Schedule - Video re-encoding is quite demanding on computer resources. This is why you can now schedule Permute to convert videos e.g. at night when you're not using your computer.
  • And so much more! - There are so many other great features in Permute - adjust volume of an audio file or an audio track in a video. Batch-resize, rotate and flip images and videos. And more!

Some findings with this new version. - Every preset resulted in stuttering playback!!! All the converted movies stutter on several occasions. - Only the very high quality settings do produce some sort of good results. There appears to be no possibility for an average quality with acceptable file sizes and good quality. Even the free Handbrake does a much better job. - If the source is matroska or mpeg2ts, the result is always plagued with audio lagging problems. Sometimes up to 1 second. - Subtitles support is not working, or at least not on my system. they are simply ignored. - Enabling hardware accelerated encoded results in files with awful quality, even at high settings. It also crashed the app 3 times. It not usable in this version. - It only support basic codecs both audio and video. - Video and audio metadata is not copied, including tags. - The GUI is counter productive. it's clicking from here to there to do things. - Adding more then 50 files is hogging the GUI too. The previous GUI was way better and actually workable. This is a huge step back. For me it was money thrown away. I should have kept using Handbrake.

Well, version 2.X for the most part was great. Transcoded fast, and more often than not well. I pretty much only go from .TS files to .MP4 and I've done 5-6 with the new version 3 - first 3.0.1 all they way up to 3.0.4 and all of them resulted in nothing but an hour and a half black screen with no sound. Why 3 stars? I'm sure they'll get it right, but it's incredibly frustrating. Back to Handbrake for the time being, even though it takes like 20 times longer.

I love the app, other than the one time where my file took forever to convert, this has worked flawlessly.

Simplistic video converter suffering from delivering bad quality, even at high settings. The demo does reveal audio synchronization problems. Not sure this is a demo feature or bug.

Permute is a great app for those who convert a movie or music on occasion. It is simple to use and does a good job. However, for anyone looking for preferences to change the encoder, aspect ratio or any of the numerous options available in other converters I would suggest you try HandBrake. The developer is not comparing Permute with such app's as Handbrake, therefor, you can not discredit the app for not having all the features you would like. It does the job well and easy as he claims.

Simple is good. TOO simple can be problematic. For instance, I see no way to handle preexisting subtitle tracks at all within this application. It appears you can add an external file, but what about subtitle tracks already in the source? Does it drop the tracks or pass thru? What if I need to burn the subtitles? The only "surround" audio option is AAC? What about AC3? This app give me too little control over my output. I may be in the minority, but I prefer too many options over too few.

It's incredibly easy to use and comes pretty much preconfigured. Plus, it's very fast at converting between video formats compared to Handbreak.
