Editors' Review

+

This combination video-conversion and creation tool boasts good speed and a nice set of features. CinemaForge's polished interface is both handsome and rather simple to understand.

As a video converter, the application supports all expected formats, including SWF, WMV, AVI, and MOV. You also can choose to accompany any video with audio files of your choice rather than the original sound. When you click the digital-camera icon next to the File Input box, you'll be able to browse your computer for still images to compile a video file. If you choose to perform this action, you can apply a few transition effects, determine the image interval, and add your own music files.

Although CinemaForge was quick to generate a slide-show video, the audio came out sounding much muddier than the original file did, even when we upped the bit rate. Elsewhere, the program lets you tweak certain aspects of your new video, including frame rate and quality. You also can choose to crop videos, apply a deinterlacing filter, and upload videos to the Web (if you have a CinemaForge account).

We should note the program can't be uninstalled by traditional means; instead, you have to click the question-mark icon on the main interface. In spite of the aforementioned quirks, CinemaForge is overall a solid piece of software.

"Version 3.0 is great"

August 06, 2008  |  By videosfreak

 |  Version: CinemaForge 2.6

Pros

I downloaded there new 3.0 pre-release version on the stagegold.com forum. There's a list of everything they fixed. There new youtube search feature is a lot easier.

Cons

Be better when they post to download, but I understand their need to test first.

"Waste of time: Annoying and worthless"

July 21, 2008  |  By Gorgonzilla

 |  Version: CinemaForge 2.6

Pros

It has an intuitive skin

Cons

1) Every time you start cinemaforge it tries to connect to the internet

2) If you deny access to internet the program crashes

3) It could not convert a flv file. Just said "view report" and the report said: "Unsupported codec (id=0) for input stream #0.1." Obviously - although the program has internet access - it is not able to look for the codecs it needs.

Summary

null

Updated on Jul 21, 2008

On top of it: When I uninstalled the program a message box "Unable to uninstal completely" appeared.

"Won't Convert"

June 03, 2008  |  By jonn86

 |  Version: CinemaForge 2.6

Pros

Looks simple to use...

Cons

But the major problem is that it won't convert anything. It gives an error message, and that's all it does. Worthless.

"help"

April 27, 2008  |  By raziaa

 |  Version: CinemaForge 2.6

Pros

demonstration was very helpful. the older version worked perfectly for video and sound

Cons

i had an older version which i could use to convert flv and mp4 files to avi format in one step. recently i started having problems, i downloaded the 2.6 version. now the converted avi file does not play in the real player and cannot add to the roxio burner. the mpeg file does not have sound.

can you please tell me how to strip out the original audio stream as an mp3 and then remix it?
