There is Aiseesoft Total Video Converter and there is Aiseesoft Total Video Converter Platinum, which adds 2D to 3D video conversion and video clipping to the already long list of features and functions available in the standard edition of this program – namely, video conversion, editing, watermarking, cropping, merging, trimming, etc. The list of video formats supported includes all the widely used codecs, both standard and HD.
MP4, MOV, AVI, DivX, XviD, FLV, MKV, and VOB are some of the standard video codecs and formats supported, while HD WMV, HD MKV, HD DivX, or HD FLV are some of the High Definition formats you can work with when using this tool. The video conversion and video editing sections are no different from those in the standard edition of the program. Converting from one video format to another requires the standard three steps – source file selection, output format selection, and the conversion process itself. The program includes a long and useful list of output profiles that are clearly organized into the usual categories (general video, general audio, lossless audio, Apple iPod, Mobile Phone, etc.) and some not-so-usual ones, such as Streaming Video, Avid Media Composer, Interlaced, DV, PowerPoint or Adobe Premiere/Sony Vegas. The number of options can be overwhelming at times, but it’s always worth the effort.
You can also use this tool to extract the audio stream of your video files, or even to convert audio files between the most popular formats, such as AAC, MP3, WAV, FLAC, Ogg, and WMA.
As for the video editor, it lets you crop, watermark, change the saturation, brightness, contrast and hue levels of your video files, or you can go ahead and try the feature that makes this Platinum edition worth the upgrade – its 2D to 3D conversion capabilities. Here you can choose between up to 14 3D modes, more than I’ve ever seen in any other video converter. Anaglyph conversion comes in ten different color combinations and various quality levels (monochrome, half color, full color, etc.), followed by two side-by-side and two top-and-bottom 3D modes. All combinations can be easily previewed with the program’s built-in video player, and the conversion process itself will produce the desired high-quality 3D videos in no time. If only for the 3D support, this Platinum edition of Aiseesoft’s Total Video Converter is certainly worth downloading and trying.
