Multifunctional application for processing tons of video files by
- Splitting files into parts
VideoCharge enables to split video and audio files into parts:
* Split video by time.
This mode implies splitting video or audio file into parts of
equal duration. Duration can be set in seconds, milliseconds
or frames. The last part of processed file most probably will
have lesser duration - its creation can be enabled or disabled
at user's discretion.
* Split video by size.
The present mode implies splitting video or audio file into
parts of specified size. Size can be set in KiloBytes or
* Split video into equal parts.
The given mode implies splitting video or audio file into
specified number of parts of equal duration. Duration of each
part equals duration of the original file divided by the
specified number of parts.
* Split video by scene.
This mode implies splitting video or audio file into component
scenes. Unique scenes are determined by means of motion
analysis of every frame or by appearance of curtain
(completely black frame).
VideoCharge includes flexible mechanism of creation of the
produced file name. Name of produced file can include variables
that hold original file name, name of the original file's parent
folder, sequence number of the produced file, etc.
Built-in Editor provides ability to preview all files that will
be produced before splitting and exclude needless files from
processing, if any. This enables to save time, since some of the
produced files may be found irrelevant later.
One or more thumbnails (small graphics files) can be created for
every produced file.
VideoCharge enables to split into parts not only a whole movie,
but also its fragments specified by means of the Editor.
- Joining several files into a single one
VideoCharge allows to join a sequence of video or audio files
into a single file. A sequence of images can be joined into a
single video file too. The given functionality provides ability
to remove needless scenes from video and audio files. When
working in "Without Re-compression" mode, one can remove scenes
and join files of the same type instantly.
- On flow processing
VideoCharge enables to process video and audio files on flow.
All operations concerned with processing of video files
generally are resource-intensive and take a lot of time since
they require decompression and subsequent compression of every
video frame. The application includes capability to process
video files without re-compression! Thereby a gigabyte video can
be processed only in a few minutes!
Of course, this functionality is unusable when it is necessary
to process every frame meaningly, for example, when adding
watermarks or applying filters. However all operations that does
not require re-compression -splitting files, joining single-type
files, extracting scenes, removing scenes - can be performed.
- Creation of thumbnails
VideoCharge includes a broad set of capabilities for creation of
thumbnails. Thumbnails can be created for both sequences of
graphics files and video files (on basis of their frames).
There are 3 modes of thumbnails creation:
* Automatic mode
This mode implies creation of thumbnails to be carried out
during creation of videos or processing sequences of images.
Thumbnails can be created in any quantity. For videos
thumbnails can be created out of the first frame, the most
static frame (within the specified time span), specified
frame, random frame. Here names of thumbnails can be set in
special way or depend on the name of the processed file.
* Split mode
This mode is effective for extracting frames of video files
and saving them as graphics files. It enables to extract all
frames without exception, extract frames regularly (by setting
time intervals) or extract the rigorously defined number of
equidistant (by time) frames. Distance between frames is
calculated as duration of the processed file divided by the
specified number of frames.
* Custom mode
The present mode implies manual selection of necessary frames
by means of the Editor. The process of selection is simplified
to the maximum. One can preview all selected frames together
and edit each of them separately - for example, crop frame,
apply filters to improve image quality, specify custom size in
pixels for produced thumbnail, etc.
For every produced thumbnail one can select target graphics
format, specify size (in pixels) and color depth, apply filters
to improve image quality, crop the original image, add
- Creation of watermarks
VideoCharge enables adding watermark to a movie (to its every
frame) or a graphics file. As a watermark one can use:
For text one can preset all basic attributes (font, color,
size, etc) as well as rotation angle, transparency, stroke
color and width. Text may include dynamic variables: name of
the original file, name of the produced file, current time,
current date. Text background may be transparent or colored.
An image can be resized and rotated 90, 180 and 270 degrees.
Also for images one can fix transparency level and transparent
Display time can be assigned to any watermark, which enables to
add watermark to a movie's interval rather than a whole movie.
The beginning and ending of watermark drawing can be protracted
for preset time, which produces effect of smooth appearance and
- Command line
VideoCharge can be accessed via command line. Here names of the
processed files and config file name are used as command line
- Conversion of video, audio and graphics files
VideoCharge provides ability to convert video, audio and
graphics files from one format into another. All parameters of
encoding - frame rate, bitrate, aspect ratio and others - can be
preset. The program allows to resize image, apply filters to
correct appearance of every frame, use external video codecs
(DivX, Xvid and others) for video compression. For creation of
WMV and AVI files, the program includes a broad set of
parameters including "two-pass encoding" feature that enables to
produce more qualitative image. Ability to create videos that
contain multiple video streams of different bitrate is included
as well. (WMV files only.)
Some information about the processed video file (author,
copyright, etc) can be added to its header provided that target
format supports this functionality.
The application is particularly optimized for processing a great
number of files (batch processing). It enables to process
folders with files and subfolders inside. At that the produced
files are saved subject to hierarchy of files and subfolders in
the source folders. File mask can be specified here in order to
select promptly the necessary files to be processed.
- Video editor functions
VideoCharge includes a broad set of tools for video editing.
With VideoCharge one can extract the necessary scenes from
videos, remove the needless scenes from videos, apply the Crop
filter (create video file based on a part of every frame of the
original video). The Editor provides ability to select scenes
promptly and easily. The selected scenes can be previewed all
together or individually.
VideoCharge enables to insert Header Video and Footer Video into
movies. Header Video and Footer Video implicate small video
clips that are inserted correspondingly in the beginning and in
the end of the processed movie.
- Processing of DVDs
VideoCharge can handle DVDs as well as VOB and IFO files. The
program allows to parse solitary VOB files, extract chapters
from them and save chapters as separate files or join them into
a single file.
VideoCharge can play all kinds of video files and DVDs as well
as display graphics files.
- Extra features
The program includes Wizard that helps to use it in full measure
without special knowledge and study of the program itself.
Wizard provides access to all main functions of the application.
VideoCharge includes built-in FTP client that enables to upload
the produced files to FTP servers. One can also upload a file to
several FTP servers at once.
VideoCharge allows to control file encoding process: when in
use, the process can be paused, hidden in system tray or
terminated. Closing the application and turning off the computer
after completing the process can be enabled by means of the
New 3.16 version of VideoCharge has the following changes:
1. Added ability to process files with MKV (matroska) type!
2. Fixed bugs from previous version.
