I like this program A LOT! Fast, easy, and light. The UI is a little "old" looking or appears a bit "amateur" at first glance...BUT DON'T LET THAT FOOL YOU! I'LL TAKE SPEED, RELIABILITY, AND FLAWLESS OUTPUT over silly animations and needless CPU sucking eye-candy ANYDAY.
Also, two quick questions for anyone who is REALLY knowledgeable about Mac video transcoding.
1. Is this program also compatible with the Elgato Turbo HD.264 USB stick for transcoding acceleration? I know there are a bunch of 3rd party vendors that this works with...I'm just not sure if the technology used in this jives with the USB stick.
2. Are my output videos optimized to use the GPU for playback automatically? If I encode something for AppleTV...but sometimes play it on my laptop, is my MB Pro using the GPU to save the juice...or is it all CPU?
Thanks to anyone who has some answers!
