Editors' reviewTiny but powerful, this video-editing utility is a great tool for amateur video editors. Installation is a snap and the program doesn't take up an enormous amount of memory. Split Join Convert Video does pretty much what its rambling name suggests. To split a video file, you enter the start and stop times for "cuts." The main program window is well-designed and easy to use. During testing we liked that with each edit, we could specify exactly what we wanted to do, as the program gives the user an impressive amount of control over each edit. When converting files, you can specify format, frame rate, and video file size. Most actions take only minutes to perform, even with some larger file sizes (we put a 50MB file through the motions, and it performed well). Overall, this program should be a great help to video editors.
Split Join Convert Video is a versatile tool for splitting, joining, or converting video files. Supported video formats include AVI, DivX, XviD, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, VCD, SVCD, DVD, WMV, and ASF. The program also supports batch job processing.
