  5. 5. EDIT, CROP, MERGE VIDEO FILES To prepare a video for presentation, burning or sharing, some editing is very important. However an advanced Video Editing Software is usually unnecessary, as the important functions are included in your common mid-priced Video Converter. • With adjustment of saturation, brightness and contrast overall quality can be improved and differences between videos can be evened out. • With a cropping tool, black frames can be removed or the focus of home-made movies can be improved. • With cutting tools, parts of the video can be cut off and fragments merged to one video file.

  8. 8. SUMMARY 1. If you just want to download Videos and convert them to play on your MAC and/or mobile device you will be fine with a simple video converter. You are less flexible when you get one with a limited set of input and output formats. 2. If you also want to be able to occasionally put your DVD (or Blue Ray) Movies on your hard drive, you also need a DVD Ripper or a combined product (often Video Converter Plus) 3. If you want to create a DVD with a functioning menu and/or other features known from professional DVDs, you will need an Authoring Software or DVD Creator. (it often makes sense to stick with one manufacturer for all parts of the workflow) © waveCommerce UG 2010Tuesday, September 28, 2010
