"We are pleased to add output profiles for Apple's iPhone 4 and the fourth generation iPod Touch, fully supporting the increased resolution of Apple's Retina display. We are committed to having TMPGEnc MovieStyle support the latest popular devices, such as Apple's iPad™, Microsoft's Zune® HD and Sony's newest Walkman® models. Not to mention it offers SpursEngine support (via plug-in, sold separately), and AVCHD input support. When Windows 7 users record high definition or standard TV shows via Windows Media Center, they can convert it to different video formats for use on an iPhone, iPod, iPad, video game console or other portable device" remarked Tak Ebine, Pegasys Inc. CEO.
New iPhone 4 and iPod support lets users take personal video everywhere they go. Just drag and drop the video content for easy conversion and playback. Similar to the fourth generation iPod, iPad and iPhone 4 video can be quickly transferred to an iTunes library using the included TransManagerTM. Then, simply connect the device to a PC and iTunes will automatically transfer the videos.
TMPGEnc MovieStyle converts video clips to portable and high definition formats compatible with popular digital devices, including: iPad™, iPod®/iPhone®, Apple® TV, Sony® mylo™ COM-2, Sony Walkman®, PSP™, Playstation® 3, Zune™, Xbox 360™, Nintendo DS™ with PLAY-YAN, Nintendo® Wii™, PDA’s with Windows Media Player, and DivX®. Accepted input formats include AVI, MPEG, MPEG4, Windows Media Video (wmv), QuickTime, H.264, DivX, DVD-Video/DVD-VR, Media Center PC (WTV, DVR-MS), and MOD (a file format used by JVC Everio HDD camcorders). HDV camcorder files are also supported.
The MovieStyle interface is easy to use. Simply select a device, then drag and drop video clips to begin converting. The converting templates eliminate guesswork and save time. It will also import a DVD (copy-protected DVD's cannot be imported), or DVD-VR and WTV/DVR-MS (Windows Media Center) recordings.
The .wtv file format replaces the. dvr-ms file format and both .wtv and .dvr-ms files can be imported. Windows Media Center is included in most Windows 7 editions, Windows Vista (Home Premium, Ultimate) and Windows XP (Media Center Edition). All that is needed is a TV Tuner device to watch and record live TV broadcasts.
The Quick Encode feature converts video clips without opening MovieStyle. Simply right-click the video clip and select the digital device from the drop-down menu. The Drop Folder feature lets users specify a folder for MovieStyle to monitor. When a video clip is saved in the folder, the software will automatically convert it for the user-specified device.
Cinema Mode converts video to 24 frames per second for PSP users. Karaoke Mode, cancels out vocals from the audio track, and uses the Pitch Changer settings to alter the audio pitch. The Audio Only option (not available for all devices) can convert video into an audio file. Time Stretch can convert video to play either 50% slower or faster with understandable audio.
