Fengtao Software, the Chinese company behind the DVDFab brand, introduced DVDFab UHD Creator, a consumer level 4K UHD authoring software.
The UHD Creator module is available in the latest 64-bit version of DVDFab 10.0.8.6, which is available for download at the software vendor's website. The new product is free to part of Fengtao's existing all-in-one customers whose orders have been placed within 15 days from today, while others need to purchase it, but at half price. The listed price of the new product is $40, $48.2 and $60.5 for a 1-year, 2-year and lifetime license, respectively.
With this 4K UHD authoring tool, users can produce 4K Ultra HD Blu-rays at home, using their personal digital videos. The supported input video formats include all the commonly seen video formats such as MP4, AVI, MKV, MOV, M2TS, VOB, etc., whether in normal resolutions like 1080p, 720p or 480p, or in 4K resolution, and no matter if there is HDR10/Dolby Vision content in the video. As for the output, the software offers multiple choices. Depending on the input size, there are three options to choose, namely, the BD25 2160p, BD50 2160p and BD100 2160p. With the BD25/50 option, users can save the resulting 4K Blu-ray movie to computer HDDs as an ISO file or folder, or burn to a blank BD25/50 disc. But with the BD100 option, they can only save the output as an ISO file or folder.
DVDFab UHD Creator offers two different processing modes, Passthrough and Conversion. The Passthrough mode only handles the MKV and M2TS videos with HDR10 or Dolby Vision content, and there is no compression, decoding or encoding involved in the entire process. While with the Conversion mode, users can deal with all the other videos out there and are given additional options to compress the input sources of a larger size down to smaller size.
