Aimersoft Video Converter Ultimate is a multipurpose application that does much more than transcoding video formats. In fact, it is a converter, an editor, a download manager, a screen recorder, a disc burner and a media player, all at the same time. Fortunately, the application is appropriate for all types of user, thanks to its well-designed interface.
The tool supports importing practically all video and audio formats. Moreover, it can load actual DVD discs as well as DVD folders and images (ISO, IFO). Not only that, the application can download clips from various video-sharing sites and, in case it is not possible to download them, you can even record video directly from the screen.
For many users, the worst part about converting media is that of setting the right output parameters. Good news is that Aimersoft Video Converter Ultimate comes with a long array of presets, and some of them are even identified with the name of the supporting device. Luckily, batch processing of the videos is allowed; yet, it is too bad that all the clips need to be converted using the same profile.
As many other tools of its type, Aimersoft Video Converter Ultimate comes with a built-in editor. It supports various operations, like trimming and merging, which allow assembling a new clip out of footage fragments. Fortunately, you can easily extract various segments from the same clip in a single trimming operation. Likewise, the tool supports applying various effects, such as filters, subtitles and watermarks. Finally, it can even simulate 3D video in an original 2D clip.
In relation to this tool’s ability to burn video DVDs, it is important to mention that it automatically converts the original video to the required format. Additionally, the program comes with various nice DVD menu templates. The results of your compilation can be burned onto a disc or saved in an ISO file.
All in all, Aimersoft Video Converter Ultimate is definitely one of the most versatile tools of its type. Its developers claim it can transcode video very fast (30X); however, its trial version can only work at standard speed, so I could not test this feature. It is part of a family of products that includes a standard edition and an editor.
