AVItools is an offshoot of the current version of MKVtools. AVItools is a Mac OS X application used for the creation and editing of AVI videos.
AVItools was primarily designed for processing videos files for use in DivX enabled DVD players, though the AVI videos it creates are also playable on hardware like the PS3 and Xbox 360.
As the name might imply, AVItools is a graphical interface for a variety of tools useful for processing video files.
Here are some key features of "AVItools":
· Simplified and intuitive user interface that simplifies the processing of AVI videos.
· Allows you to convert from a variety of video file formats like MP4, OGM, MKV into AVI videos.
· Ability to convert various surround sound audio to 5.1 AC3.
· Intuitively select desired video, audio and/or subtitle tracks to process, with the ability to verify the selections using video preview.
· Use presets for one step encoding for playback on common hardware.
· Burn (i.e., hard code) subtitle tracks into the video from internal tracks or from external subtitle files commonly found on the internet.
· Control the font, size and positioning of the embedded subtitles.
· Split AVI videos into segments of a specified file size or by start/end time.
· Join AVI videos.
· Extract the selected tracks from AVI videos as individual video and/or audio files.
· Add jobs to a queue either individually or in batches via drag and drop so you can process multiple files overnight (registered copies only).
· Apply one setting to a group of files for easy batch creations (registered copies only).
· A “nag” window will appear every time you load a new file.
· You may only run 1 job at a time, so you can't take advantage of the queue and batch capabilities of AVItools.
