I currently use VirtualDub 2 FilterMod (which includes ffmpeg as its engine, I
believe.) It has a GUI, which I like. Even though old, it's still available...


It can output various modern (or old) file formats, with various types of
compression. It has lots of configurable choices too-- many of which I don't
understand or use, ha. But I'm always learning.

[I've never been able to understand the 'shellout' feature in POV-Ray for
Windows, or how to use it. I don't come from a programming background, so the
concept itself is kind of a mystery.]
