Cinema Craft H.264/AVC Encoder LE


Cinema Craft® Lite encoder provides HD encoding capabilities, but with fewer filtering, fine-tuning and quality control capabilities than the full version. However, since both products utilize the same encoding engine and contain Segment Re-encoding functions, it is capable of achieving high quality and similar (though not identical) results in most cases.
