As the name of this software implies, Split Join Convert Video allows you to cut, merge and encode video files. It can be easily used by individuals of any experience level, including novices.
The interface of the program is plain and simple to navigate through. Video clips can be imported into the list by using the file browser only, because the "drag and drop" method is not supported. Batch processing is allowed.
In the queue you can check out the status, job type, source and output target name, along with details on each video.
So, all you have to do is specify the output destination and extension (e.g. AVI, MPEG, WMV), in order to proceed with the encoding job.
Furthermore, you can configure audio and video preferences when it comes to the size, frame rate, resize mode, compression level and others. On top of that, you can split clips by marking the start and end position, preview output videos, move jobs up and down in the list, remove an item from the queue or clear the entire thing, and others.
The video processing software runs on a moderate amount of system resources, has a good response time, quickly finishes a task and manages to keep a good image and sound quality after conversion. We haven't encountered any technical difficulties during our tests. There's also a well-drawn help file with snapshots that you can look into. Aside from the outdated interface, we strongly recommend Split Join Convert Video to all users.
