Bigasoft AVI Converter can help you convert between multiple audio and video formats. Although its name suggests that AVI is the only output format supported, it can actually convert to a much wider range of target formats, including not only popular video formats but some audio formats as well. Thus, it can also be used to extract audio from video. If you are one of those users who are frightened by the words “codec” and “bitrate”, there is nothing to worry about, because this converter comes with several built-in conversion profiles. As they are adequately identified by the names of their supporting devices, you can easily find one of those profiles and avoid compatibility issues. However, expert users can also customize output parameters to match their exact needs and even save the changes for later use. It is also good that you can use individual conversion parameters for each of the files on your list.
The application’s interface is perfectly suited for batch conversion as it allows adding not only single files but also complete folders. Moreover, you can even use this tool to download and convert Internet video by providing the corresponding URL.
Fortunately, as part of a trend towards providing converters with editing features, this tool allows trimming and cropping video. Moreover, you can also apply visual effects, add watermarks and tweak picture parameters. What is more, you can merge various clips into one. If the source file supports multiple streams, you can also select an audio track and subtitles. Luckily, you can even embed subtitles from external files.
To sum up, Bigasoft AVI Converter is a fine converter. It does not have any significant limitations in relation to the formats supported; therefore, it can be used as a general-purpose converter. In addition, its authoring features can let you use it as a basic video editor. Although it has some limitations, it is still a good choice.
