A smart application that combines all popular MainConcept codecs, allowing users to convert videos from one format to another easily
MainConcept Reference is a video transcoding application that can help users to convert between various formats, with various editing possibilities such as crop, flip and deinterlace.
MainConcept Reference uses a smart transcoding engine that gathers the power of all video and audio codecs produced by the company overtime, thus delivering the best case scenario to the end user.
It is capable of processing both standard-definition and high-definition formats, with a batch conversion option that allows you to convert multiple files at a time using a preset or custom profile.
The program adopts an elegant and intuitive interface, which can be explored seamlessly by less experienced users due to ease of access. There is a preview section, complemented by areas where the source files are listed and a toolbar for configuring the conversion profile.
Here, you can select the codec that will be used during the transcoding process, the aspect, framerate and bitrate, as well as to apply several filters to the original files, such as crop, flip, deinterlace and watermark.
If you’re reluctant to tackling these parameters on your own, the program does provide an alternative through the collection of built-in presets, for which all of the settings are automatically chosen.
The transcoding process can take a while, especially if the source file is large; batch conversions can take even longer, depending on the number of files placed in the queue.
Overall, MainConcept Reference comes across as a versatile video converter. The most attractive aspect is that it supports high-definition formats, which is a compulsory requirement for a good transcoder.
