How easy is it to use Movavi Video Converter?
You don’t need to be an expert to use the software for converting your videos. The user interface of the software is so simple that even a novice user can easily use it on the first try. All the features and tools the software offers are available on the main screen and so there is no need to navigate deeper to access them. Now let’s see how to convert a video from one format to other using the software.
Click on the ‘Add Media’ button or at the center of the main screen to open the video that you wish to convert.
If you wish to edit the video before converting it, then click on the edit button available next to the video.
Now use the various options available in the edit screen to edit the video.
Trim – You can delete or cut a portion of your video by using this option.
Rotate – Rotate your video to the clockwise or anticlockwise direction and flip vertically or horizontally.
Crop – Resize your video to fit on the screen.
Watermark – Create watermark in the video by using this option.
Subtitles – Add subtitles to the video by making use of this option.
Adjustments – Change the display features of the video like brightness, contrast, saturation etc.
Audio – Adjust the audio present in the video file.
Stabilization – Adjust the video settings by using this option.
After completing the video editing, click on the ‘Done’ button to return back to the main screen.
Now select the output format to which you want the video to be converted from the box available at the bottom of the screen.
You can click on the settings icon present next to the output format to change the settings of the target format.
You can also change the quality of the output video by clicking the file size present next to the video.
You need to click on the convert with watermark button to proceed with the conversion if you are using a trial version. If you have an activation key, then you can enter it and convert the video without any watermark on it.
You can now find the converted video in the output folder that you chose earlier. The conversion of the video was very fast that it took less than a minute for converting an 80 MB video. Only a very few video converters that I used earlier were able to convert at such speed.
Converting an audio or an image file is exactly similar to the above process. You just need to follow all the steps stated above and the only difference is you will be working on an audio or an image instead of a video.
As said earlier the Watch Folder option available at the top of the screen allows you to convert all the video present in a folder automatically without any intervention from you.
Select the folder that you want to convert and choose whether you want the original files to be deleted or moved to a subfolder before starting the automatic conversion.
Once the watch mode is enabled, the application will be minimized and you will be notified after all the videos in the folder were successfully converted. Please note that the watch mode will stop converting the videos if you open the software in the middle of the process.
