When working with video files, experienced users often find switching between the multiple available formats difficult. MovieConverter Studio for Mac solves this problem through its conversion abilities, but with a moderate price tag.
Available as a free trial version, which limits the video output to three minutes, the program requires a $20 purchase to unlock the full version. After downloading, installation begins, but MovieConverter Studio for Mac needs an additional download of supplemental packages for certain format conversions. The menu for this download states these could not be packaged in the original file due to legal reasons, which is troublesome for users to read. After this download, a set-up menu walks the user through selections for video format and preferred video editing software. The overall menu and program design are well thought out and easy to follow, even for beginning users. Technical support is in the form of available updates. Loading videos and starting the conversion process was easy to manage. While limited to three minutes in the trial version, the actual conversion went as quickly as expected and the output matched the original video. The program was easy to use and worked well overall, despite its inability to more completely work with videos.
For those users converting videos often and willing to pay for a well-designed and easy-to-use program, MovieConverter Studio for Mac may be a good option.
Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of MovieConverter Studio for Mac 1.998.
