Just drag 'n drop! MovieStyle's intuitive interface makes converting video clips fast and easy. Select the device, then drag and drop video clips to start converting. The included converting templates eliminate guesswork and saves time. Also included is the TMPGEnc TransManager™, which organizes and transfers clips to the selected device.
The Quick Encode feature allows users to convert video clips without opening the MovieStyle software program. Just right-click on the video clip, then choose a digital device from the drop-down menu to begin converting. The Drop Folder feature allows users to specify a folder for MovieStyle to monitor. Save a video clip to the Drop Folder, then the software will automatically convert it for the user-specified digital device.
Other features allow users more control over the converting process. The Cinema Mode option converts video to 24 frames per second (fps). For PSP users, the PSP Overdrive option uses the PSP LCD driver to improve video display quality. Users can also enable Karaoke Mode, which cancels vocals from the audio track, and use the Pitch Changer settings to alter the audio pitch. The Audio Only option (not available for all devices) can also convert video into an audio file.
The Time Stretch feature converts video to play at up to 1.5 times normal speed with fully understandable audio, users can watch a one-hour video in about 40 minutes. Time Stretch can also convert video to play up to 50% slower, making a one-hour video into an approximately two-hour video.
