Considering software developers constantly try to attract users, it comes as no surprise that they include a wide range of complementary features within their products. For instance, multimedia players often come with editing actions (albeit basic ones), whereas video editors can also process images and playback movies. Similarly, VCDCut Pro can not only cut out video parts, but also take screenshots, create image slideshows and add video effects.
The interface of the application is well structured, each tab has an intuitive title and you can access the one you want to use.
You can start by opening a supported video file (MPEG, VCD, DVD, AVI or WMV) or adding several files and create a playlist. During playback, you can apply video effects and preview their outcome in real-time: blur, posterize, emboss, jitter and X-ray are only some of the available effects – you can also overlay bubbles, flares, fireworks or rain for achieving a more dramatic result. For cutting out video parts, you only need to specify the start and the end point, then save the clip.
When it comes to creating image slideshows, VCDCut Pro offers you the liberty to adjust the delay, the transition effects, the sequence type and the stretch method, all after you choose the source folder (only JPG graphic files are used for the slideshow).
Another function of VCDCut Pro is the DVD Copy: once you insert a DVD, it get automatically recognized and you can specify the chapters you want to convert to VOB format. Also in terms of conversion, you can encode your QT, MOV, MPG, M1V, DAT, WMV, VOB, RM and RMVB to AVI format, having the possibility to modify the audio and video compressors.
The image capturing component can be used to extract frames from your videos or to take screenshots of your desktop. The software also includes a desktop drawing utility, which you can use to highlight various areas of your screen.
If you want to split your video files to multiple equal parts, VCDCut Pro can also help. The output files can be saved as MPG, M1V or MP3, and you get to choose the destination folder.
The unregistered version of this complex app imposes several types of limitations that can be removed only after purchasing a license.
