CinemaForge

CNET 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.

    "I don't know why so many are complaining. It is great"

    December 30, 2012  |   By skajdlive

    Version: CinemaForge 3.4

    Pros

    Everything - Especially the lovely quality converted videos. And you can even crop the video before converting. This is nice indeed.

    Cons

    Can't seem to deal with SWF files, which is my main need. It says "not encoded". Maybe I need codecs? I will try to figure it out.

    Summary

    Good stuff and freeware. Lovely reproduction. Easy to install and easy to use and I love the little cropping feature. I like CinemaForge! You are my new buddy ;)

    Updated on Dec 30, 2012

    I just ran a Malwarebytes Anti-Malware scan (the best of the free best) and no virus or problems.

    Many of the PC security softwares are rubbish e.g. McaFee and Norton are always showing fake alarms. The interfere with what you are doing to say that there is a virus or trojan when in fact it is part of the software that is required and harmless. I dont use them. They are all a pain in the arse.
