For a few days, I have been wondering why there are so many video formats, AVI, MP4, MOV, WMV, 3GP
and also why not all the devices support all kinds of video formats or they just support one format.

After you finish the 3 steps, you can just click Start button to start your conversion.
If you want to pick up a part of the video to convert, please click Trim button and drag the Start trim slider to set the start time and End trim slider to set the end time. (a) You can also do that by clicking the Start trim button and End trim button (b). The third way you do that is set the exact Start/End time at the right of the pop-up window and click OK.(c)

If you want to remove the black edges or you want to convert a certain area of your video, please click the Crop button. You can do this either by drag the frame around the movie (a) or set the crop value: Top, Left, Bottom, Right.(b). Another way to do that is choose models from Crop Mode(c).
Aiseesoft Video Converter for Mac also allows you to chose the output aspect ratio above the crop pane, Keep Original, full screen, 16:9 and 4:3 are available.
