I am evaluating encoding sofware packages and would like to know what others have found from using them. Looking at Episode and Sorenson Squeeze Suite. Both offer similar formats in and out, and support the most often used formats : QT, WMV, MPEG, Flash. Sorenson seems much more expensive for the same features. Is the price justified? Is there anything standout better for either product?
I primarily need WMV export functions, for SD and HD. I use QT Pro/Compressor for all QT encoding. And Bitvise foe MPEG 2 encoding. I could get Flip4Mac WMV Studio Pro to handle the WMV encoding. But the ability to have one package do all of it is appealing. Is there anything really distinctive to justify a new suite or will F4M Studio be sufficient for my needs?
