This product requires a serial number for being installed 0_o
Even though it's bloated and slow, it does its job well.
If all you want is transcode to ASF-wrapped VC-1 video via Avisynth, then [apparently, at least] you don't need to install Silverlight nor QuickTime.
FWIW, the program directory contains decoders and encoders from Mainconcept, but I have no plans to use them.
Elegant and professionally-looking design.
Intuitive, user-friendly GUI. Extremely easy use. Expecially the crop-and-resize interface.
Encodes to Windows Media Video (.WMV) file only (What else one might expect from Microsoft, btw?).
Lake of one-pass constant quality encoding mode (like Windows Media Encoder did).
Inability to demux video, audio, subtitles.
Inability to mux video, audio, subtitles from separate files into a single file.
Inability to join two or more clips into a single file.
Inability to split one movie into two or more clips.
Lake of basic filters, like deinterlacing, denoising.
Lake of basic processing information such as current input and encoded frame, current bitrate, elapsed time,...
It locks most parts of the GUI when a job in queue is active (is encoding), which prevents the user from editing and configuring the remaining jobs.
Silverlight is definitely superior to Flash.
