A couple of weeks ago, I received a copy of DVDFab v9 and I’ve been in the process of doing a review on the different levels of its abilities. Most people recognize DVDFab for being able to make copies of DVDs and Blu-ray discs, but DVDFab also has additional video conversion abilities that makes it even more important and a more well-rounded software package.
For instance, in addition to its abilities to work with DVD and Blu-ray discs, it can convert standard two-dimensional video into three-dimensional video [2D to 3D Converter]. The process is actually pretty simple.
Where To Get The Software
My copy of DVDFab was downloaded from their website, it can’t be purchased from a brick-and-mortar store. You simply go to their website and download the software. If you have a broadband connection, it should only take you a couple of seconds. The installation file is just under 60 MB.
DVDFab has interesting way of encapsulating the software. You download one software install package and it does everything based upon the product keys that you purchase. If you purchase all the product keys for DVDFab, it enables all the facets of the software.
DVDFab offers all of its products as try before you buy. DVDFab offers 30 days trial for free, so you have enough time to verify any aspect of the application’s abilities. The video conversion software is roughly $60, but if you have any questions about the software, registering or any other technical points, you should contact DVDFab directly.
My Initial Impressions
Because DVDFab encapsulates their software, this also makes it a little bit easier to use, but for the purposes of this post, we’ll be focusing on the ability of the software to convert videos to 3D.
Here’s the main form:
At the top of the screen, you see the other functions that DVDFab has to offer, but were on the converter tab. As you can see when you click on the converter tab, options for adding videos and downloading videos, as well as editing and merging videos is available.
The software simple to use, you simply use the drag-and-drop ability, or choose the add button to add your source video.
The source video is dropped into the processing area; into the task queue. On the right-hand side, you’ll see the option for the output.
You have control over the 3-D format you want to use; anaglyph, split screen, two separate screens and to video streams in one file.
Here’s the options for anaglyph.
And as shown here, the options change based upon the 3-D format that you want to use.
Conversion options for gain and visual depth can be adjusted to your own liking.
As a suggestion, because this is video conversion and it could take some time based upon the size and resolution of the source file, it may be a very good idea to get a 30 second video clip that you want to work with for testing.
As I’ve mentioned before, I think that DVDFab’s software is good, but for the users who are using the software very first time, if you’re not familiar with the application, I think there should be an elementary step-by-step process; something that could be disabled once the user is comfortable with the options available to them.
Most people probably won’t have an interest in working with 3D video. Those that do have an interest in working with 3D video are enthusiasts or video professionals who need the service or effect. DVDFab 2D to 3D video converter is a very interesting tool if you want to convert your personal library to a special experience or if you want to experiment with converting one of your existing videos to 3D. The application makes it very easy to get source video into the application, set the 3D effects that you would like and then click the start button; the rest is done for you.
