Video to 3GP Converter
Video to 3GP Converter is a simple-to-use program that allows you to encode and merge video files to the 3GP format.
The interface of the tool is clean and pretty intuitive. Videos can be imported into the list via the file browser only, since the "drag and drop" method is not supported. Batch processing is allowed.
In the list you can view the thumbnail of each video, along with duration, resolution, split span, transitions and location.
So, you can trim clips by marking their start and end point, as well as add transitions (e.g. keep the audio stream, fade in and out).
Furthermore, you can add background music (e.g. enable fade in and out, adjust the volume), preview the clips and play the album, arrange videos in the list, save the project, capture a DV from a camcorder device, and others.
After initializing the merging process, you can specify the output destination and configure audio and video settings when it comes to the codec, bit rate, size, frame rate, channels and sample frequency rate.
The video conversion tool runs on a moderate amount of system resources, can guide you to a brief online help file and manages to keep a very good image and sound quality.
On the other hand, Video to 3GP Converter crashed a couple of time during our tests, when we tried selecting transitions and previewing the album. Also, it can take a while for the video clips to be imported into the list and you cannot specify the output file name. We recommend Video to 3GP Converter with reservations.
