When you want to convert a photo, video, or audio file from one format to another, it’s far too easy to get bogged down in settings, unable to make heads or tails of technical jargon. Permute saves you from that trouble by taking care of the details and converting files incredibly fast.
To start a file conversion, just drag a file into Permute’s main window or onto its dock icon, click start, and you’re all set. Permute is faster than ever too. With the recent launch of version 3, the app supports an incredibly long list of file formats and has added hardware acceleration for MP4 and HEVC files. The app also has presets for a long list of Apple hardware so you can match your end results to the devices you use. You can even modify images and videos, adjusting their size and rotating and flipping them.
But that’s not all, Permute 3 can also:
- Convert individual files or groups of files
- Stitch multiple images, videos, or audio files together
- Create DVDs
- Convert uncommon file formats like WebP and SVG
- Schedule conversions for later
- Add converted files to iTunes
