Welcome to Ulead VideoStudio
Thank you for purchasing VideoStudio, the video editing software that allows even beginners to produce professional-looking movies. VideoStudio provides you with a complete set of tools to capture videos, edit them, and share your final production on CD, DVD, HD DVD, or the Web.
Note: The availability of features depends on the VideoStudio version you have.
How VideoStudio works
VideoStudio follows a step-by-step paradigm that lets you easily capture, edit, and share your video. VideoStudio also offers more than a hundred transition effects, professional titling capabilities and simple soundtrack creation tools. Learn in seconds, create in minutes. To make a movie production, first capture footage from a camcorder or another video source. You can then trim the captured videos, arrange their order, apply transitions, and add overlays, animated titles, voiceover narration, and background music. These elements are organized in separate tracks. Changes to one track do not affect other tracks.
Components of a project as displayed in Timeline View
A movie production is in the form of a VideoStudio project file (*.VSP), which contains information on the path location of the clips and how the movie has been put together. After you have finished your movie production, you can burn it to a VCD, DVD, HD DVD or record the movie back to your camcorder. You can also output your movie as a video file for playback on the computer. VideoStudio uses
Note: These steps do not necessarily need to be followed in the order that they are presented.
The Menu Bar
The Menu Bar provides various commands for customizing VideoStudio, opening and saving movie projects, working with individual clips, and more.
The Navigation Panel
The Navigation Panel is used to preview and edit the clips used in your project. Use the Navigation Controls to move around a selected clip or your project. Use the Trim Handles and Jog Slider to edit your clips. When capturing video from a DV or HDV camcorder, the Navigation Controls are used for device control. Use these buttons to control your DV or HDV camcorder or any other DV device.
2 Play Mode Select whether you want to preview your project or only the selected clip. Home Returns to the starting frame. Next Moves to the next frame. Repeat Loops playback. 8

Position the Jog Slider to where you want the first clip to end and the second one to start, then click this button. 14 Enlarge Preview Window Click to increase the size of the Preview Window. You can only preview, not edit, your clips when the Preview Window is enlarged.
The toolbar allows you to easily access buttons for editing. You can change your project view or zoom your project timeline by adjusting your Timeline ruler. Click
Smart Proxy Manager to speed up editing of your HD videos and other large source files. Or use the Overlay Track Manager to add more overlay tracks.
Storyboard View Shows image thumbnails of your movie on the timeline. Audio View Shows the audio waveform view, allowing you to visually adjust the volume levels of your video clips, narration or background music. Fit Project in Timeline Window Zooms in or out to display all the projects clips on the Timeline. Undo Lets you undo a previous function. Smart Proxy Manager Creates working copies of your HD videos with lower resolution.
There are three ways you can do to add clips to your project: Capture video clips from a video source. The video clips will be inserted onto the Video Track. Drag clips from the Library onto the correct tracks. Click to directly insert media files to the different tracks.
The Play button in the Navigation Panel serves two purposes: for playback of your entire project or a selected clip. To play back, click Project or Clip, then click Play. While working on your project, you will want to preview your work frequently to see how your project is progressing. VideoStudio offers you two preview options: Instant Playback and High Quality Playback. Select File: Preferences General, then choose the preview method that you prefer in Playback method.
Instant Playback allows you to quickly preview changes in your project without the need to create a temporary preview file, however, playback may be jerky depending on your computer resources. High Quality Playback renders your project as a temporary preview file then plays this preview file. Playback is smoother in High Quality Playback mode, but rendering your project for the first time in this mode may take a long time to complete depending on the size of your project and computer resources.
Note: When Perform non-square pixel rendering is selected in the Project Options dialog box (opened from Project Properties dialog box), Instant Playback performance may be affected if computer resources are insufficient.
In High Quality Playback mode, VideoStudio uses SmartRender technology which renders only the changes you made such as transitions, titles and effects, and eliminates re-rendering the entire project. SmartRender saves time when generating previews.
Setting a preview range
For faster previews, you may choose to play only a part of your project. The selected range of frames to preview is referred to as the preview range, and it is marked as a red bar in the Ruler Panel. To play the preview area only: 1. Use the Trim Handles or the Mark-in/out buttons to select the preview range. The Preview range mark-in and Preview range mark-out timecodes will then be displayed in the Options Panel. 2. To preview the selected range, select what you want to preview (Project or Clip), then click Play. To preview the entire clip, hold [Shift], then click Play.
Undoing and redoing actions
You can undo or redo the last set of actions that you performed while working on your movie by clicking Undo [Ctrl+Z] or Redo [Ctrl+Y] in the toolbar.
Showing and hiding grid lines
You can use grid lines to guide you when repositioning or resizing images and videos or when adding titles to your movie. To show grid lines in the Edit and Overlay steps, select a clip in the Timeline then select the Attribute tab. Select Distort clip then select Show grid lines. To show grid lines in the Title step, select Show grid lines in the Edit tab.
to set the cutting point more precisely.
to cut the clip into two clips. To remove one of these clips, select the
unwanted clip and press [Delete]. To trim a clip with the Trim Handles: 1. Select a clip on the Storyboard or Timeline. 2. Click and drag the Trim handles to set the Mark-in/Mark-out points on the clip.
For more precise trimming, click on a Trim handle, hold it, and use the left or right arrow keys on your keyboard to trim one frame at a time. The Mark-in/ Mark-out points can also be set by pressing [F3] and [F4], respectively.
3. Click Play Clip to preview the trimmed clip.
Tip: You can also use Zoom controls to display each frame of your video in the Timeline and trim one frame at a time. The Scroll Bar makes navigating through your project quicker and easier. A wheel mouse can also be used to scroll, and to zoom by pressing [Ctrl].
To trim a clip directly on the Timeline: 1. Click a clip in the Timeline to select it. 2. Drag the yellow Trim handles on either side of the clip to change its length. The Preview Window reflects the position of the Trim handle in the clip. Or, click the timecode in the Duration box in the Options Panel and enter the desired clip length
3. Other clips in your project automatically reposition themselves according to changes made.
Note: Changes made in the video Duration box only affect the Mark-out point. The Mark-in point remains unchanged.
Saving trimmed clips
Frequently, when you make changes (i.e., after auto-splitting clips using Split by Scene, extracting clips using Multi-trim Video, or manually trimming clips), you may wish to make a permanent change to the clip and save the edited file. VideoStudio gives you a margin of safety in that it saves the trimmed video to a new file and does not alter the original file. To save, select a trimmed clip in the Storyboard, Timeline or the Library and select Clip: Save Trimmed Video.
Ripple Editing allows you to insert clips while automatically moving other clips (including empty spaces) aside, to make room for it on the Timeline. Use this mode to maintain the original track synchronizations when inserting additional clips.
Converting multiple files
Batch Convert allows you to simultaneously convert a large number of files to another format.
To do Batch Convert: 1. Click.
2. Click Add and then choose the files you want to convert. 3. Select an output folder in Save in folder. 4. In Save as type, choose your desired output type. 5. Click Convert. 6. The result is shown in the Task Report dialog box. Click OK to finish.
Adjusting color and brightness
Adjust color and brightness settings of images and video in the Timeline by clicking Color Correction in the Options Panel.
You can modify the playback speed of your videos. Set your video in slow motion to emphasize a movement, or set it to play at lightning speed and give your movie a comical air. Simply adjust the speed attributes for your video clip by clicking Playback Speed under the Options Panel of the Edit Step. Drag the slider according to your preferences (i.e., slow, normal or fast), or enter a value. The higher the value you set, the faster the playback of your clip. (Values range from 10-1000%). You can also specify a set duration for the clip in Time stretch. Click Preview to view the results of your settings then click OK when finished.
Tips: Hold [Shift] then drag the end of the clip on the Timeline to change the playback speed. The black arrow means you are trimming or extending the clip, while the white arrow means that you are changing the playback speed.
Reversing video playback
Reverse the playback of the video by clicking Reverse video in the Options Panel.
Capturing still images in the Edit Step
A still image can be captured in the Edit Step by selecting a specific frame in the Timeline and saving it as an image file. In this manner, possible distortions are avoided since the image is not acquired from a running video, unlike in the Capture Step. To capture still images: 1. Select File: Preferences - Capture. Choose Bitmap or JPEG as the Captured still image save format. If you selected JPEG, also set the Image quality. 2. Select a video clip in your project 3. Drag the Jog Slider to the frame you want to capture.
To trim a video file into multiple clips: 1. Go to the Edit Step and click Multi-trim Video in the Options Panel.
2. In the Multi-trim Video dialog box, view the whole clip first by clicking determine how you want to mark segments.
3. Choose the number of frames to display by dragging the Timeline zoom. You can choose to display the smallest subdivision of one frame per second. 4. Drag the Jog Slider until you get to the part of the video that you want to use as the beginning frame of the first segment. Click Start.
5. Drag the Jog Slider again, this time, to the point where you want the segment to end. Click End.
6. Do steps 4 and 5 repeatedly until you have marked all the segments you want kept or removed.
Tips: To mark segments, you can also press [F3] and [F4] while playing the video. Click Invert Selection to toggle between marking segments that you want to
retain or marking segments that you want taken out from the clip.
7. Click OK when finished. The video segments that you kept are then inserted onto the Timeline.
Navigation controls in the Multi-trim Video dialog box:
Reverses or advances through the video in fixed increments. By default, these buttons move up or down through the video in [F5] [F6] increments of 25 seconds. Plays a preview of the final trimmed video.
Plays the video file. Hold [Shift] then click to play only the selected segments. Moves to the start or end frame of a trimmed segment.
Moves to the previous/next frame in the video.
VideoStudio lets you search your videos for commercial intervals. Clicking this feature extracts the commercials to the media list. Program detection sensitivity allows you to control the rate of distinguishing between commercials. Quick search interval allows you to set a fixed interval between frames and and browse through the movie using the set value. Merge CF merges all your extracted clips so that they appear as on thumbnail in your media list.
Applying video filters
Video filters are effects that you can apply to clips in order to change their style or appearance. For example, you can improve the color balance of a clip, or make it look like a painting. Video filter samples: Anti-shake allows you to correct or stabilize sub-standard videos due to camera shake.
To replace a transition in your project, drag the new transition from the Library onto the transition thumbnail to be replaced on the Storyboard or Timeline.
The Effect Step Options Panel
VideoStudio pretty much takes care of all the details to make your transitions smooth and professional. You can, however, further customize your transitions after adding them to your project. The Effect Step Options Panel displays the settings of your selected transition so that you can change their various parameters. This gives you complete control of exactly how your transitions will behave in your movie.
Note: The attributes in the Options Panel vary depending on the type of transition effect that is selected and applied to your project. Duration: Shows the duration of the applied effect on the selected clip in hours:minutes:seconds:frames. You can adjust the duration by changing the timecode values. Border: Determines the thickness of the border. Enter 0 to remove the border. Color: Determines the hue of the transition effect's border or flap. Soft edge: Specifies how well you want the transition effect to blend with the clips. A Strong soft edge results in a less pronounced transition, thus creating a smooth progression from one clip to another. This option works best for irregular shapes and angles. Direction: Specifies the direction of a transition effect. (This is only applicable to some of the transition effects.)
The Album transition
One of the transitions you will find in the Library is the Album transition. Album simulates the turning pages similar to that of flipping photo album pages. You can choose from a variety of album layouts, change the album cover, background, size, and position, and more. To apply the Album transition: 1. Click the Effect Step then select Album from the Library. Apply one of the preset transitions by dragging a transition thumbnail in between two clips on the Video Track.
2. In the Options Panel, click Customize to open the Flip-Album dialog box. 3. In the Layout section, choose the desired look for the album.
4. In the Album tab, set the albums Size, Position and Orientation. To change the album cover, select a preset from Album cover templates, or select Custom album cover then import your own cover image. 5. Click the Background and Shadow tab. To change the background of the album, select a preset from Background templates, or select Custom background then import your own background image. To add a shadow, select Shadow. Set the shadow position by adjusting the Xoffset and Y-offset values. To make the shadow look softer, increase Soft edge.
Note: To change the shadow color, click the color box and choose the desired color.
6. Click the Page A tab. Customize the first page of the album. To change the image on the page, select a preset from Album page templates, or select Custom album page then import your own image.
Give more life to your videos by adding Flash animations as overlay clips. To add a Flash animation: 1. In the Library, select Flash Animation in the Folder list. 2. Select a Flash animation then drag it onto the Overlay Track on the Timeline. 3. Click the Attribute tab to resize and reposition the object/frame.
To customize the current object, frame, or Flash animation: Use the various options available in the Edit and Attribute tabs to customize your object and frame. You can add animation, apply transparency, resize the object or frame, and more.
While a picture may be worth a thousand words, the text in your video production (i.e., subtitles, opening and closing credits, etc.) adds to the clarity and comprehensibility of your movie. In VideoStudio's Title Step, create professionallooking titles, complete with special effects, in minutes.
Ulead VideoStudio allows you to add text either in multiple text boxes or in a single text box. Using multiple text boxes gives you the flexibility to position the different words of your text anywhere on the video frame and allows you to arrange the stacking order of the text. Use a single text box when you are creating opening titles and end credits for your projects. To add multiple titles: 1. In the Options Panel, select Multiple titles. 2. Use the buttons in the Navigation Panel to scan your movie and select the frame where you want to add the title. 3. Double-click the Preview Window and type in your text. Click outside the text box when you are done typing. To add another set of text, double-click again on the Preview Window.
4. Repeat step 3 to add more sets of text.
If you switch to Single title before adding to the Timeline the multiple text that you entered, only the selected text or the first text that you typed in (when no text box is selected) will be retained. The other text boxes will be removed and the Text backdrop option will be disabled. To add a single title: 1. In the Options Panel, select Single title. 2. Use the buttons in the Navigation Panel to scan your movie and select the frame where you want to add the title. Double-click the Preview Window and type in your text.
3. In the Options Panel, set the Line spacing. 4. When you are done typing the text, click the Timeline to add the text to your project. It is recommended to keep your text within the title safe area. The title safe area is the rectangular box on the Preview Window. By keeping the text within the bounds of the title safe area, the whole text will not be truncated when viewed on a TV screen. You can display or hide the title safe area by selecting File: Preferences - General tab - Display title safe area in Preview Window. To edit the text: For single titles, select the title clip on the Title Track and click the Preview Window.
For multiple titles, select the title clip on the Title Track and click the Preview Window then click the text that you want to edit.

Appendix D: System tweaks
Enabling DMA for IDE disks
Direct Memory Access (DMA) is a method of transporting data from the system's main memory without passing through the CPU. Open the Control Panel's System program, and in the Device Manager, enable DMA (Direct Memory Access) for all the hard disks (in the primary and secondary IDE channels) that will be used for capturing video. DMA avoids possible drop frame problems when you are capturing video. In Windows XP:
In Windows 2000:
Disabling Write-Behind Caching
Disable Write-Behind Caching on the hard drive used for video capture. In Windows XP:
Setting the Paging File size
Change the values of your Paging File (Swap File) size. Set the minimum and maximum to twice your amount of RAM. For instance, if you have 256MB of RAM, set both your minimum and maximum paging file limits to 512. In Windows XP:
Appendix E. Tips and techniques
A. DV camcorder tips
Format the DV tape before shooting video. Formatting a DV tape is desirable for batch capture and for accurately locating timecodes. Formatting here means to record a "blank" video from start to end without interruption. This is what a professional cameraman will do with a new DV tape. Once it is formatted, you can start shooting video. Thus, when you play your video footage on the DV camcorder, the counter (displayed as Timecode on the camcorder's LCD monitor or viewfinder) keeps running even when there's no actual video. How to get the best video quality out of a DV camcorder. Capturing video using the IEEE-1394 interface card provides loss-proof quality. After editing your project, you can then render your final movie at any file format of your choice. If you don't have an IEEE-1394 card or a DV camcorder, the second choice is to use an analog capture card. If you intend to record your finished project back to the videotape, using an analog capture card with S-video output yields better video quality.
Ulead VideoStudio 10 Plus by John C. Lee VideoStudio 10 Plus is the latest release of Uleads popular video-editing and DVD-authoring software It has a number of new advanced features. What impresses me most are the enhancements Ulead incorporated in the basic tools and functions that makes the capturing and editing jobs much easier and faster. VideoStudioo 10 Plus now offers three program options: the VideoStudio Editor designed for advanced users; the Movie Wizard for beginners; and the new DV-to-DVD Wizard with the capability of burning a DVD directly from an entire tape without scanning or capturing to the hard drive. The new Editors interface has a large preview window on one side, and the Library and Option Panels conveniently placed on the other. It offers four different interface layouts for the viewer to choose from. Ulead has greatly improved the processing speed. Now you can start playing the clip or the project on the preview window almost instantly with one click of the play button. Ulead has added a scrolling Timeline ruler and tracking indicator as I suggested in my version 8 review. But the indicator re-scrolls repeatedly from the middle of the ruler. I would prefer to see the indicator stay put with the ruler scrolling. The Timeline scale slider is a much-improved tool to adjust the ruler scale. By adjusting the ruler to the frame-size scale, you can identify accurately the frames you want to trim from the video clip. The Timeline ruler bar also has a provision to set (or remove) chapter markers, which is much more convenient than setting the markers while previewing the project. Rip Editing is another convenient feature. Once enabled, the positions of the media files you inserted in all the tracks are locked to the clips in the video track. Hence, you do not have to reposition these files if you drag and drop new clips into the video track or remove unwanted ones from it. VideoStudio 10 Plus now offers 6 overlay tracks. You can resize, reposition or apply animations, masks or video effects to the clips in the overlay tracks. In addition, you can use the Chroma Key function to create Alpha channel clips or images with a transparent background (only from those with a solid color background). With 6 overlay tracks, you can produce multiple-pictures-in-picture video clips or still images. The Audio functions have not changed much from the previous versions except the new added 5.1 Dolby Digital support and the Pitch Shift filter that raises or lowers the pitch of the audio clips. Two other noteworthy features are the Ad-Zapper and the DV Quick Scan. Ad-Zapper automatically detects commercials in TV programs for easy removal. The DV Quick Scan function allows you to scan the DV tape at speeds up to 6X and select the scenes you want to keep in your movie for later batch capture. A new advanced feature introduced in VideoStudio 10 Plus is high-definition support. It allows you to work with high-definition videos just as you would with DV. You can capture clips from a HDV camcorder; edit and preview clips using low resolution Smart Proxy files; and output full-resolution native HD movies and discs. VideoStudio 10 Plus provides an online Users manual. The Content CD contains an audio/video tutorial, which covers an overview of the tasks that can be performed in the program.
VideoStudio 10 is an excellent program and easy to work with, once you have spent enough time to work through each of the multitudinous options and dialog boxes. Ulead does not follow the common industry practice of providing a Help button in each dialog box that automatically links to help tips for all the options in the dialog box. This not only slows the process of learning the program, especially for new users, but also gives rise to discrepancies between some dialog boxes and the online manual. The following lists a few specific examples of such discrepancies: 1. In the Share step, I do not see the necessity of adding an extra Disc Template Manager dialog box, when all of its options are already covered in the Video Save Options dialog box. 2. The Video Save Options dialog box shows a Compression tab. But nowhere in the online manual can I find help tips for the Compression tab. The dialog box also contains a Quality-Speed adjustment slider. I cannot find what this slider is used for? It does not seem to affect the video or audio bit rate. 3. The dialog box also has an option to choose an audio type of Mono, Stereo or Joint stereo. Since Joint stereo is not a common audio format, the manual should provide some tips on the difference between Stereo and Joint stereo and where Joint stereo would be best used. Joint stereo encoding allows the transfer of relatively low bit rate, acceptable-quality audio with modest Internet access speeds. I guess that the best place to use it would be Share Video Online. 4. The buttons and sliders in the Pan & Zoom dialog box do not have any tool tips, and the online manual does not show these buttons. Hence, the user has to spend time to figure out what each button does. 5. The Burn Options in the help manual shows the option of Do Not Close Disc. But this option does not exist in the actual Burn Options dialog box. Apparently, Ulead forgot to delete it from the help manual. 6. The procedure used to create a disc in the Share step is unnecessarily involved and confusing. You have to click 5 buttons and work through 6 dialog boxes before you can start the burning process. I believe the procedure can be simplified. If the output file size is less than the capacity of the disc chosen by the user, there is really no need to lower the recording quality and to show a confusing list of 15 compression levels. If the file size exceeds the disc capacity, then, the program should prompt the user to pick one of the three options- (1) Lower the recording quality and show only the required compression level to fit the output file in the selected disc; (2) Change to a higher capacity (e.g. from a single-layer to a dual-layer disc) disc; or (3) Rework the project by splitting it into manageable file sizes.
