Description:

The fastest video converter on the App Store with movie and TV show metadata, subtitles, folder monitoring and batch conversions. Smart Converter Pro 2 has it all.

It’s so easy to use - just drag your video or audio files onto Smart Converter Pro, select an output preset and convert. Smart Converter Pro analyses your files and only converts the bits that need to be converted. This means less waiting and top quality conversions.

The Pro Difference
=============

Smart Converter Pro offers a bunch of amazing features to make your conversions quicker, smarter and more convenient:
* Folder monitoring - convert anything that hits your monitored folders
* Movie and TV Show info - automatically add key info about your movies
* Subtitles - include subtitles, add external subtitles and even load subtitles from the web!
* Audio tracks - include any or all of the audio tracks in your movies
* Batch processing - queue up and convert as many files as you like in one go
* Set destination - you decide where you converted files go
* Decide whether to send converted files to iTunes

Why So Smart?
==========

When you drop a media file into Smart Converter Pro and choose a conversion type, it immediately analyses your file and works out what needs to be converted.

In many cases neither the video nor the audio need converting. In some cases just one or the other need converting, and in a few cases both will need converting.

Smart Converter Pro only converts the parts of your movie that need it and leaves the rest alone. This makes Smart Converter Pro faster that every other converter while maintaining the highest possible quality video an audio in the converted movie.

Awesome Workflow Support
=====================

Smart Converter Pro has been optimised to not only provide the fastest video conversions possible, but to simply your life also.

This is done by combining powerful automation features which work seamlessly together.

Here's how it works:
- Folder Monitoring: tell Smart Converter Pro which folders it should check for new downloads
- Metadata lookups: Smart Converter Pro will automatically pull in artwork and movie/show descriptions
- Subtitles: set your language preference and if the movie or TV show is in a different language Smart Converter Pro will pull in the required subtitles. Really.
- Send to iTunes: Once all the magic is done, Smart Converter Pro will add your file to iTunes, ready to watch on AppleTV or sync to your iOS devices

Give the Smart Converter Pro workflow a try and simplify your life.

BEST Converter I Have Ever Used - I don't know why some people are determined to leave bad reviews? This converter works great! I have used many different converters and find this to be the best. It adds cover art, descriptions, actors and all other metadata to a film or TV show. I will agree that some formats convert slower than others but a lot is going on when converting videos. (A quad core with a dedicated GPU will help more than anything). I would say that 90% of what I convert is done in under 1 minute. Try to get videos with x264 they will be done in no time. In regards to resolution it really depends on what you start with. In other words don't expect to start off with a standard definition video and end up with an HD copy. When I convert HD videos I see no noticeable difference in quality between the original and converted copy. However I'm only an avid film watcher with more than 1000 movies in my library. I would recommend you spend the money if your an iTunes junkie and love your metadata attached to the films.

Version 2.0.2
Review by VinceW.

Has no business being called “Pro" - Any converter that is as slow as this one and that does not include AVCHD to ProRes as one of its outputs should not be called “PRO.” Most pros use ProRes in Final Cut Pro. Final Cut has not made it easy to transfer AVCHD into FCP 7 (which for many remains the preferred version) and the purpose of a third-party converter is to facilitate what cannot be done otherwise. Further the “force conversion of AVCHD” option defaults to the OFF position, creating the appearance of a fast conversion when in fact the final output is riddled with unstable frames, rendering it unusable by pros. Turning ON the “force conversion” results in one of the slowest conversions I have seen to date, the reward for which is an H264 format which must then be RE-RENDERED using some other program into ProRes 422 so that it can be used by FCP. Part of the problem lies in FCP’s whacked and wonky file and transfer function, it is true, but either SmartConverter Pro should add an AVCHD to ProRes422 option to its paid app version or it should not be called “Pro.” Pros who haven’t migrated to Premier or FCP X simply cannot use this program, and if they HAVE, they have no need of this program. A waste of $$.

Show lookup broken - The latest update has broken the show info fetch from TVDB. When you search for a show and then select a result from the found list, info is not updated and the type reverts to home movie. It's made a standout ap pretty useless.
