1. Adobe Premiere

Adobe Premiere

Adobe Premiere is a full on professional video package which is hugely expensive, certainly not for everyone, but for those looking to produce content for commercial consumption this is the tool. You just need to create your new Premiere Pro project, import the nature photos and media into the project, create a sequence or timeline and add audio, and then assemble a rough cut, add a title to your video, enhance your video with effects and transitions. At last directly export your first completed video. Using the export features of Adobe Premiere Pro can create video files in a variety of formats.

It also makes it super simple to output to a mobile device. (but unlike others, not burn to the media). It is a great all-in-one package and worth a look. Here are other Video Converter Ultimate options for you.

3. ImToo Video Converter

ImToo Video Converter

ImTOO Video Converter is a good option for video converter software, with a hefty collection of input files, output files and some basic editing features including split and merge, as well as adding still images into video and extracting images from video, useful for thumbnails and so on. Specific settings for converting your video to be used on iPads, iPhones, PS3, Android devices, Xbox and Nintendo games machines, converting your footage into something usable on the desired device is simplicity itself.

5. Movavi Video Converter

Movavi Video Converter

A speed demon among media converters, Movavi Video Converter is an indispensable addition to your software library. Convert video, audio, and image files to more than 200 media formats, or for 200+ mobile devices, at an unbeatable speed. Trim or join your files and modify them with basic editing tools in mere seconds.

A nice feature set here, but the stand out is the speed, it claims to convert video up to seventy nine times faster than anything else. I’m not sure about the numbers, but it is noticeably faster at converting than the other packages here, so if speed is important to you, this is a good choice.

6. Xilisoft Video Converter

Xilisoft Video Converter

Xilisoft Video Converter Ultimate has some great capabilities, but its race for the top is hindered slightly by some missing editing tools and an interface that could be better. It allows you to batch convert files, adjust audio and video codices, audio and video bitrates and sample rates, and more. And it does provide many tools to edit your video. You are able to split or merge files. You can add watermarks, subtitles and even soundtracks to your videos. It can also adjust video brightness, saturation, contrast and add artistic effects such as old film, gray, oil painting or canvas to make your video look special. This video converter software is easy to use, but we found the interface to be a little less intuitive than some others.

7. NCH Software Prism Video Converter

NCH Software Prism Video Converter

Prism Video File Converter Free is a capable, easy-to-use tool that can convert videos between most formats, including some uncommon ones, one by one or in batches. A clean, efficient user interface avoids the garish backgrounds and “styling” common to freeware video converters (the commercial version awards you with more formats for your expenditure). As such, it does look a little lacking in features here, but if you want to convert your video file into one of the more commonly used, this does it easily and efficiently with little fuss and for no cost.

8. AVS Video Converter

AVS Video Converter is an easier-to-understand video converter I ever used. Nice output results. Plus it has different tools in one suite – converter, editor, DVD burner, etc. With AVS Video Converter, you can do some video editing, including splitting, joining and trimming video and adding audio tracks. In addition to that, the video and audio effects are a lot of fun and ensure that your videos will look and sound the way you envision them.
