ffmpeg seems so fiddly and like entering commands into terminal...i know people think it is great and powerful, but it is not a fit for me.

Amazed more people don't use EditReady. Lots of video editors I know use it. Easy. Fast. Cheap. You can pick 3!

AFAIKT, Handbrake will only create MP4s or MKVs in H.264, H.265, MPEG-4 or MPEG-2. No DNxHD or Prores.

ffmpeg is the very best thing you can learn how to use, biggest problem I have is that it's complicated to install on a system that isn't yours, particularly if that system is off the internet. ffmpeg will make DNxHDs or Prores's, as MOVs or MXFs. There are some window apps that help you run ffmpeg though you still need to have it installed in the first place.

Also fun to keep in mind: Quicktime is EOLd. Apple has AVFoundation which effectively replaces most of QuickTime, though it's not clear if Apple will offer or sell something that works like QT Pro but is built on their modern multimedia platform.

I've been using ffworks for over a year now, and am very happy with it. It is extremely fast and accurate. One of its top features is batch convert - all to the same target format.

By far the easiest way (imho) is to install ffmpeg and create Automator workflows.
This lets you convert your files straight from within Finder with a right click.

It’s free and the most intuitive and fastest solution I have found.

There was a thread about this over a year ago which has it all explained and has all the hard work done for you. Copy paste and you’re done!


edit: added screenshot, I have 3 choices setup: a low res h264, dnxhd36 and dnxhd36 with timecode burnt in. Two clicks is all it takes.

If you are on Windows, I find this to be a great and comprehensive front end for ffmpeg. It's hasn't borked anything for me in 12 months of use.

For me it's ffmpeg + Automator.
Audiospot is nice and this one too http://www.shutterencoder.com/en/index.php

Really surprised Adobe Media Encoder wasn't mentioned on PTE or here. Yes, you have to have Adobe CC, but it's super powerful and easy to use.

In MacOS (since Lion I believe), you can just right-click a video file (or multiple files for that matter) in Finder, select 'Encode Selected Video Files', choose Apple ProRes and you're done. If you prefer Avid formats, ffWorks (or cli ffmpeg) is the way to go..

hm. What exactly is future about this? Didn't touch Streamclip in about 5 years or so.

With that thread title I was expecting reinfored learning supported content recognition-powered intelligent auto-mixing. At least.

Just looked in High Sierra and no such option exists looking at mp4 and mov containers. Are you sure you aren't running something that added that extension?

You might need to enable it if you’ve upgraded your OS from previous versions rather than a clean install (in which case it should be enabled by default). It’s in System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts tab > select Services > enable Encode Selected Video Files (and Audio Files if you want to).

I'd use my Pavtube Video Converter. It's really good.
