DVD Converter Ultimate is a professional software application whose purpose is to help users convert their DVDs to different file formats, such as MPEG, AVI, MKV, WebM, or MP4, or to other preset profiles that are built specifically for encoding videos to formats compatible with smartphones, tablets, portable devices, and game consoles.
It sports a clean and straightforward layout that allows you to add items into the working environment using the built-in browse function or “drag and drop” operations. You can load the video from a disk, DVD folder, or ISO file.
What’s more, you can select the desired output format or create a custom one by specifying the name and video container (e.g. MKV, AVI, MP4), setting up the video parameters in terms of codec, resolution, size, aspect ratio, frame rate, and maximum bitrate, tweaking the audio functions by selecting the codec, channels, bitrate, and sample rate, as well as picking the codec for the subtitles.
It is important to mention that the utility offers support for audio profiles as well, as you can export the audio streams to OGG, MP3, or M4A file format.
DVD Converter Ultimate features a built-in video editor which comes packed with a rich-featured set of functions for helping you customize the clips. You are allowed to resize the videos, rotate images to different angles, alter the video bitrate, adjust the levels of contrast, brightness, saturation, and gamma, cut clips, and edit chapters and video titles.
Other important functions worth mentioning are represented by the possibility to make the tool shutdown or hibernate the computer at the end of the task, specify the output folder, limit the number of simultaneous conversions, set priorities, play sound notifications, as well as burn the project at the end of the conversion.
The program carries out the conversion operations very quickly and without errors. It is not quite friendly with system resources, so the overall performance of the computer may be affected.
All in all, DVD Converter Ultimate provides a powerful suite of tools for helping you make conversion operations, edit videos, and burn the project. Although it may seems more appropriate for advanced users, rookies can install and configure it with minimum effort, thanks to its intuitive interface.
