I have been looking at and reviewing programs by Mystik Media for some time now. One thing I usually look forward to when first launching one of their programs is what it will look like. They have some of those most interesting and well-designed User Interfaces (UI) I have seen. Blaze MediaConvert is no exception. It has such a small footprint and nice UI it is a pleasure to use.
Blaze MediaConvert does what its name implies: it is a very powerful multimedia batch converter that supports conversions of over 60 image, audio, animation and video formats! All accomplished fast and easily. So what sets Blaze MediaConvert apart from the others? Many of the other conversion programs only support a few formats (believe me, I have tried many). Blaze MediaConvert supports nearly all multimedia formats presently conceivable!
So what formats does it support? I could just say "All of them" but that would be too short and sweet and not do this app justice. For audio formats it supports; CD to WAV, CD to MP3, CD to WMA, WAV to MP3, MP3 to WAV, WAV/MP3 to WMA, WMA to WAV/MP3, OGG to WAV, WAV to OGG, MP3 to CD Audio, WAV to CD Audio, MP3 to CD Audio, and WAV Compression. It also allows you to burn MP3 and WAV files to CDR and CDR/W. It has does some great buffering for greater performance, easy track manipulation, disk caching (for the best quality results possible), and the ability to write from network locations with caching feature. Some of its CD Converter options provide more options including a CDDB auto-save feature, which allows you to save the track title, artist, and album information.
For video conversions it does the following: It can perform two-way video conversions from MPEG-1, MPEG-2, AVI, Multi-Page TIFF, and FLIC. If you want to build videos, try the Video Constructor. Here you can combine images as frames to create a video in the desired destination format. Do you have a video file that you would like to decompile? The Video Decompiler will save all frames within a selected video file as single images in which you can then save as BMP, GIF, JPG, PCX, PNG, PNM, RAS, RGB, TGA, TIFF, and XPM.
Image conversions include formats such as ANI, AWD, BMP, CAL, CGM, CLP, CMP, CUR, CUT, DCM, DCX, DGN, DIB, DRW, DWF, DWG, DXF, EMF, EPS, EXF, FAX, FPX, GEM, GIF, HPGL, HPGL2, ICA, ICO, IFF, ILBM, ITG, JBG, JIF, JPG, JTIF, MAC, MNG, MSP, PBM, PCD, PCT, PCX, PGM, PNG, PNM, PPM, PSD, RAS, RAW, RLE, SGI, TGA, TIFF, WFX, WMF, WPG, XBM, XPM, XWD, and more.
Mystik Media has done it again with a program that shines over the others! Remember, Blaze MediaConvert is geared toward "batch" converting. So load up all your multimedia files as listed above that need converting and get busy.
