4K videos have become ubiquitous today, with smartphones, action cameras, and drones all offering people the chance to record films in impressively high quality. However, the high resolution of 4K means the videos huge file sizes and compatibility issues with some video editors.
If you work with video a lot, then today’s computers have more CPU cores and vastly superior graphics cards that will better handle the demands of editing raw 4K video. However, once you have finished editing your film and are ready to share it with the world, it is crucial that you convert the video to a compatible format and compress it to a reasonable file size so that it can be watched by anyone. Whilst YouTube can handle 4K videos, most people will do not have 4K televisions or the superfast broadband required to stream such high resolution videos, and so h.264 1080P MP4 videos remain king.
Compressing and encoding video takes a lot of time and processor power, which can often leave your computer unusable for hours on end while it crunches through the processes. However, Digiarty’s MacX Video Converter Pro and WinX HD Video Converter Deluxe will make the most of your hardware and pass off much of the processing to compatible Intel QSV, or Nvidia or AMD GPUs, resulting in much faster video conversion rates whether you are on Windows or Mac.
By implementing this hardware acceleration, MacX Video Converter Pro can convert a 2.5GB, 22-minute 4K MKV video (AVC codec) video to MP4 in just 4 minutes, compared to the 33 minutes the same conversion takes with the popular Handbrake video tool. And the process is easier too – just load the source video, select the format for output and hit Run to convert between MP4, HEVC, MKV, FLV, MP3, and over 200 other formats.
