Editors' Review

+
Though this oddly named video converter is much more narrowly focused than many in its class, it's easy to use, functional, and free. TMPGEnc's gray interface will never win any design accolades, but since it works entirely in step-by-step mode, we doubt most users will get confused. Basically, the program converts AVI files into various flavors of MPEG optimized for DVD, VideoCD, and Super VideoCD. For a freebie, this one gives you a surprisingly large amount of control over your new file. For instance, you can convert in interlaced or noninterlaced modes; change the aspect ratio and size; apply noise reduction; crop edges; and extract certain portions of a clip. TMPGEnc also lets you set the video quality and apply different filters. As long as you don't regularly need to encode video files in a codec other than MPEG, you'll find this one to be well worth considering.

"Flexible conversion but capricious behavior"

September 25, 2011  |  By plamumba

 |  Version: TMPGEnc 2.525

Pros

Allows much manipulation from input to output, such as color correction, frame clipping, forced audio for flexibility in making DVDs, source format specification (useful with ineptly made source files), good batch mode.

Cons

Hit or miss "unsupported format" errors that have nothing to do with installed codecs (as rendering is OK through graphedit, etc). Lack of control and information over codec selection makes this problem essentially insurmountable in many cases.

Summary

I use this program all the time for converting to a format usable in a DVD, but I feel I am constantly fighting its strange and annoying behavior. The other converters I have looked at don't offer the flexibility of this program in processing the source video however, so I stick with it.

Interface can be annoying in its declining to remember things like file sort and display preferences.
