Video Converter Studio is an all-in-one media player, converter, editor, downloader, screen recorder and slideshow maker. The tool has a tabbed interface that minimizes users’ efforts. In many respects, it looks similar to other programs of the same kind, so, if you’re already familiar with them, you’ll probably start using this tool without much trouble.
As a converter, the utility allows processing batches of media files. Moreover, it has a built-in media player that also lets you take snapshots. Fortunately, it supports multiple input and output formats. However, unlike other modern converters, this one cannot load DVDs from image files. In case a video file contains multiple subtitles and audio tracks, you can pick one of them, but that’s not all, because you can also import subtitles and audio tracks from external files as well.
This program undoubtedly helps inexperienced users to make good decisions as to the target format, as there are multiple presets organized not only according to the type of media but also their compatible devices. One limitation, however, is that you cannot use individual conversion profiles.
As an intermediate step before finally converting your media files, you can perform basic editing changes. In this regard, the built-in editor supports trimming various segments from the same clip, something not all applications of this type do. Besides, it allows rotating and cropping the image as well as adapting its parameters. If you need to, you can also embed titles, although with little control of their appearance. The tool also allows embedding subtitles from external files and using a text style. It’s a pity that, even though it has a link to search for subtitles in an online database, you need a browser to carry out this task.
If you frequently download clips from any video-sharing site, you’ll probably like to know that this software also works as a download manager. Multiple clips can be downloaded simultaneously and you can even pick one of the available qualities, including 4K definition. Once a video is downloaded, you can edit it or convert it to other formats.
Another useful feature is the screen recorder. With it, you can capture video sequences of whatever is happening on your screen. Various selection methods are available, you can grab the whole screen or a specific region. What’s more, the utility can capture video directly from your webcam. In all cases, the application can record audio from the selected source.
Finally, the tool also lets you convert batches of photos into a slideshow. As input, it supports practically every popular picture format. The imported photos can be arranged according to your likes. Besides, you can configure transitions between images and play background music.
To sum up, Video Converter Studio is both versatile and easy to use. It's certainly one of those tools that can meet most expectations. As almost all software products, it has its limitations, but they don't make it less valuable. One thing you should be aware of: there are many quite similar video converters out there so you may be willing to try some of them before finally making a decision. Luckily, most of them are free to try with only a few reasonable restrictions.
