The Platinum edition of 4Videosoft Video Converter adds 2D to 3D video conversion to the multiple features already present in the program’s Standard edition. These features include conversion between all the most widely used video file formats (including some HD video codecs), video editing, and audio extraction. Its intuitive interface makes this tool suitable for all types of users.
Unlike many other batch video conversion tools, 4Videosoft Video Converter Platinum will let you convert your videos into different formats in one single operation. While other similar tools will force you to convert all the videos on the list into the one output format selected, this program will allow you to assign a different output profile to each of the items on the list. For instance, this high level of flexibility will allow you to convert some videos into various formats and extract the audio of other video files all in one single batch operation. To make the output profile selection easier for the less experienced users, the program has neatly classified the many profiles provided into various categories, some by codec (general video, general audio, lossless audio, etc.) and some by device (Apple iPad, Xbox360, Android, etc.). Each of these profiles, though, can be further customized to fit your preferences.
Not being a video editor per se, this program comes with some interesting editing features that you can apply to your video files prior to the conversion process. The editing window includes settings to crop, watermark, change the aspect ratio, adjust various color- and light-related settings, and to edit the audio stream of the selected video file. As said, this Platinum edition has been enhanced with 2D-to-3D video conversion, a feature that is also part of this editing window. Conversion to three-dimensional video can be done by applying either an anaglyph or a split screen effect. Both are supported by this tool, and both offer various possibilities – different color combinations for anaglyph conversion, and different positions for the two screens in the split-screen option.
Be it for its flexibility, for the long list of media formats supported, or for its 3D conversion capabilities, this versatile video conversion tool is certainly worth a try.
