Why don't you download Nero9 for a trial and see if it does what you need. I have not try it because my OS doesn't meet the requirement; If you XP or later then give it a go.
I did a quick search of this forum about converting a mov format to mpeg.
I found this link: http://www.erightsoft.com/SUPER.html
This software was suggested by moderators of this forum, so that's good enough for me.
One more question: does the conversion just convert, or will the conversion degrade the final output?
I have HD mov files from a new camera (DSLR) and would like to retain the quality.
I'd also pay for this ability, if there is some other program that will do better.
