River Past Video Perspective is a video converter software with a twist.
Ever went to an electronic store and saw a video playing on a wide HDTV and everyone in the video look extra fat? Aspect ratio is not well understood, even by the people who deal with them everyday.
Simply put, most video designed for TV have a "normal", or 4x3, aspect ratio. Newer "wide" TV has a 16x9 aspect ratio. If you play a "normal" video on a "wide" screen without adjusting, everything will look fat. If you play a "wide" video on a "normal" screen, everything will look skinny. (A good way to lose weight, isn't it?)
This becomes a problem when you want to transfer a video from one aspect ratio to another. For example, you found there is a nice option to record at 16x9 on your DV camcorder, and it makes the recording look professional. However, now you want to burn it to a DVD and the DVD authoring software only output to 4x3.
Use River Past Video Perspective to adjust the aspect ratio. You can use "Pan and Scan", which chops off the sides of the wide video to make it fit in a normal screen, or use "Letterbox", which adds black strips.
# Ease of Use
With many years of experience in video editing, we cannot think of any other software which adjusts the aspect ratio easily. Can you?
Aspect Ratio adjustment is a very common video editing task. When Hollywood put a movie on VHS video tape of DVD, there are normally two versions. One is "normal", which has the sides chopped off from the original wide screen movie (called "Pan and Scan"), and the other is "wide", which adds black bars on the top and the bottom (called "Letterbox").
With some of the new media, like DVD, the pixels may not be square anymore. For example, the NTSC DVD's resolution is 720x480, and it can be either 16x9 or 4x3, with the same pixels. This introduces more confusion unless you are an expert in the video editing field.
River Past Video Perspective is designed to help regular folks to handle this task. A couple of simple combo box is all you need to tell how the video's aspect ratio is handled, and the preview window would display how the video looks after the conversion. It is that simple.
# Input Flexibility
River Past Video Perspective supports a wide range of input file formats.
We even support Apple's QuickTime files (.mov and .qt). This is the only software which can convert MOV to AVI or WMV correctly.
# Output Control
You have the full control over the output file format. For AVI, you can define the codec, video size, frame rate, audio sample rate, channel, resolution, and bitrate. For WMV, you can choose from a list of pre-defined profiles, targeted at different usages.
# Pulse Regulator
Pulse Regulator is our technology to clear up the timecode of the video. There are many different video formats, created by many different video editing software programs. Often, a video file would work in one software but misbehave in another. A quite common problem is that the video and audio are out of sync.
We repair the timecode if we see any problems. Sometimes, it is the only way to get a video accepted and encoded correctly by DVD authoring software.
With our Pulse Regulator technology, you can change the frame rate of your video with confidence, whether you are converting from PAL to NTSC, or NTSC to PAL.
