Super - Video Conversion Software

Group,

I'll start by saying that I've spent the last 5 hours scouring the board and others looking for a tight and foolproof work flow to convert some HDV footage into Divx or MP4 or Xvid or Quicktime or anything that will work for fast downloads and deliver amazing quality with little effort on my part.

I've been working on some 3 - 4 minute videos for real estate tours and each time I encode to another format from my timeline or transcode via Procoder or Adobe Media Encoder, the results are dismal and the file sizes are nearly 100 megs.

So while playing with the (as W would say it) Da Google, I stumbled on a write up of a transcoder over on Doom.net, they recommended "Super" (www.erightsoft.com) which can basically convert anything to anything and best of all it's freeware.

I opened the software and got familiar with it in about 3 minutes, followed the guide on DvdGuide.com (http://www.dvd-guides.com/content/view/143/59/) and transcoded a 3 minute M2T Cineform file over to MP4/H.264 for Quicktime in about 4 minutes and the final file size was 26 megs which was smaller than some of the exports that I had done with Premier and Procoder, but this time the output quality was incredible! On a scale from 1 to 10 this was a 9!

That said, I wanted to share as I know that others are often looking for some workflow or software to deliver and it appears that this one is really cool.

Miguel

I've had that software for about a year now and it works pretty good. It also allows you to watermark a video (under certain codecs) which is pretty cool.

Just stumbled upon it a week ago on another forum and I also like it.

I stumbled across it a few weeks back. works great, but I have had a couple issues, where I couldn't get the resulting file to play properly. audio played fine but no video, which I think would be a codec issue, but since Super has the codecs??? probably just not in the right place.

I'm just in awe that my very expensive ProCoder app can't provide the same quality as the free app. I took an H.264 file created in both apps and compared them and one looks like a DVD the other looks like VHS, actually a VHS that has sat on a shelf for 10 years and lost some of it's coding!

I'm glad to see that others were using it with satisfactory results, now why hadn't it been posted here <grin>.

Miguel,

I just never got around to posting about it. I've only used it a few times, this morning was the latest. I came across a flv file I wanted to convert to something I could edit quickly. getting it to convert properly (when the audio codec and other information was unavailable in the file info) took some time. The audio was way out of synch and the video was double or triple speed. I finally got it using the Divx codec, but there is that little divx watermark in the lower right.

It's a good little program and the price sure is right!

But that's got to be the MOST annoying download site in the world. Click download, and it brings you to another page where it yaps some more about how you really want to download this program...so you click download again, and it brings you to yet another page where it yaps and yaps and tells you to be sure you download a good copy...so you click again and...

Sheesh.

ok here are a couple of fact
the software AVS Video Converter is NOT FREE you have to register it and pay. this is providing that you can find where to download it from there are so many darn windows you have to navigate oh and best of all the trial version put a watermark in your video after a 35mb download.

my verdict dont waste your time nothing in life is free
