I'm doing a project at school and I need a software to convert an avi. into an mpeg file. I need it just for this one time and probably never again so I downloaded evaluation versions of programs and converted my file but it ended up with the "Unregistered Version" tag in the middle of the screen.
I'd really appreciate if someone could tell me how I could convert my file without having to pay 40 bucks for it.
The above is a link to the download page for TMPGEnc. It is freeware for Mpeg 1 and at one time it had a Mpeg 2 encoder with 30-day time limit, but no watermark. I don't know about the current version.
