  • "Edit" option is missing in "converter" tab? How do I trim/crop during conversion?

    Hi again

    I was hoping to switch to DVDfab from Handbrake, but looks like many useful features are missing. I remember in DVDfab v9 there was a Edit button that will allow cutting/cropping/trimming the video during conversion. I can no longer see it in v10. Also, with Handbrake I can apply many filters during conversion, like grain noise reduction, sharpness, etc, these are not available in DVDfab... Am I missing something here, or is DVDfab's video conversion is inferior compared to Handbrake?

    Thanks

    You may be using the wrong module. "Converter" is for manipulating video files and uses them as a Source. For rips from a disc (or ISO or BDMV/VIDEO_TS folder) the Ripper module should be chosen. Actually, the same controls are available in v10, as shown in the capture.They are also available in the Converter module. Some may not be present when using the Copy Video option in either module.(The capture is from Converter).

    It is not really useful for you to continue comparing DVDFab to other products, if you want to see something as a feature in DVDFab, you can simply make it a Feature Request or can report it as a problem in the sub-form for the specific module.

      Thanks. But, ripper is only useful when the source is a disk or ISO, not a simple video file, such as a TS file recorded from a satellite receiver. When I want to re-encode such file I must use the converter module, and there is no option to crop or remove black bars during re-encoding.. I remember it was available in v9.x

        Here are 2 captures I made in Video Converter (as was the first one above) that show the conversion of an AVI encoded with black bars to an MKV without them. I do not have your source files, but this feature works well. The adjustments I made are circled in yellow. The cropping can be accomplished by typing numeric values into the "distance from..." boxes, using the adjustment arrows in the boxes, or clicking and dragging the green handles in the Source Preview window.
