I hope I haven't posted this before, but if I have, I apologize.

Is there a viable substitute for Microsoft Office Publisher? I have tried Publisher Plus and iStudio, but they leave a LOT to be desired.

Is there a list anywhere about what replaces what? I've got SEVERAL software packages that I need replacements for.

Thanks

I forget which machine you are using and what version of the operating system you're on.

If you have Pages in your applications folder that should do what publisher did, but it will not open publisher files. Nothing opens publisher files except publisher. Got to love Microsoft.

Yeah, gotta love Micro$oft.

I'm running an iMac with El Capitan (OS X 10.11.2)

For starters, I need something to replace Everio MediaBrowser v4 and AnvSoft Any Video Converter Ultimate v5.6.6 (I use those to process our church service recordings and write to DVDs) and DVDFab (used to duplicate DVDs).

I had to finally get MSOffice 2016 just so I'd have Excel (nothing else would handle most of the spreadsheets I used). In the bargain, I got Outlook, but I miss Access.

Other than that, I'm getting along o.k., using what I can find that does most of what I need.

What format are the recordings in? mp4, wmv etc? what are you using to record them?

They are being recorded by a camera, and they get to me in .mts format. Everio does not have a program for thr mac to process them. All I want to do is convert them to .wmv format and combine the two or three segments on the chip into one file.

I had a camera that gave me MTS files. Try this:

Unfortunately the freebies only do a little of what the "fully paid" versions do, and right now, I'm not in a position to pay for anything.

Sorry.. I forgot. I used the free Handbrake to convert mts files. It takes a little to get it all figured out. Be sure to check off De-Interlace for mts files.

Oh.. here, I found a tutorial for you.

I forgot about handbrake cool

It does have a bit of a learning curve but it is powerful, and free.
