Converts, edits, watermarks MOD files
Pavtube Studio has launched its self-titled video converter for .MOD movie files recorded with JVC, Sony, Panasonic and Canon devices. The utility can produce MP4, 3GP, AVI, MPG, MPEG-4, FLV, MOV, 3G2 and VOB files from MOD originals. It has only a light effect on video quality and is claimed to properly sync audio. MP4 compatibility allows users to convert MOD files for editing in Final Cut Pro or iMovie. It can compress, trim, crop, watermark or add special effects to the output videos.
Pavtube MOD Converter for Mac requires Mac OS X 10.4 or higher, including Snow Leopard. It regularly costs $30 but is currently selling at a 20-percent discount of $24.
