GPU-accelerated video converter
VideoProc Converter is a free video program from developer Digiarty Software, Inc. It is a video converter utility that enables users to process large file sizes with up to 4K resolution. It can convert to multiple formats quickly with the help of its Level-3 Hardware Acceleration Technology.
What makes VideoProc Converter stand out from others like Any Video Converter or Total Video Converter is that it can tap into the power and capabilities of modern graphics cards to help boost conversion speeds. Users can take advantage of that feature if they opt to purchase a full license of this software.
Fueled by GPUs
Video editing and handling videos, in general, is a very resource-intensive task that requires a lot of power from PCs to do efficiently. This process has most commonly been delegated to CPUs, with more cores and higher clock speeds equating to faster rendering times. However, with powerful GPUs becoming more prevalent, it's now more feasible to tap into their capabilities, and this is what VideoProc Converter is all about.
Hardware acceleration is not a new concept, but this program is trying to leverage this technology to greater effect with what it's calling Level 3 Hardware Acceleration. Compatible with Nvidia, AMD, and Intel solutions, it boasts theoretical speeds of up to 47x faster depending on the card used. There's also its Intelligent High Quality Engine, which helps compress file sizes without much loss in quality.
Other notable features include Batch Processing and Video Downloading options across multiple supported websites. Now, with all of that being said, its most coveted feature, advanced GPU acceleration, is only available with a license. Also, most of the functions that are included in the free version are quite restrictive like five-minute limits, watermarking on processed videos, and many other limitations imposed on them.
Lost the point
It's a little ironic that VideoProc Converter's most standout and boasted feature can't even be previewed or tested in its free version. Remove that aspect from the equation, and you're left with a fairly typical video converter that functions like any other. Unless you're really curious about much faster it can actually perform, making a purchase will be quite the consideration to make.
