Speed is usually one of the primary concerns of users when editing videos. While working on a video project, usually, you will want to preview the project as you edit, and it can be quite discouraging if you have to wait a long time to see the results of your work. Ulead VideoStudio's SmartRender feature makes previewing and creating movies a lot faster. When you preview your video project for the first time, VideoStudio 'renders' the project by creating a temporary preview file on your hard disk which combines the video, image, and audio clips with the special effects which you applied to them. The SmartRender feature detects any changes in your project, and if there are no changes, instantly plays back the preview file. If there are changes (for instance, when titles, video filters or transition effects have been added), it renders out only the edited portions, making render times much shorter and faster. The SmartRender feature also skips re-rendering when the properties of the captured video are consistent with the project settings. It only renders your project
the first time you inserted your captured video clips. When you add more captured video clips, VideoStudio directly plays back the project without rendering. In addition to previewing your video files, Ulead VideoStudio gives you an option to instantly preview your project without creating temporary files. With the Instant Playback option, you can play the entire project without having to wait then preview it immediately.
Ulead VideoStudio's DV SmartPlay feature plays a video project directly from the Timeline out to a DV/D8 camcorder without rendering a movie file. It also lets you view your project on an external TV monitor if your IEEE-1394 capture card supports such monitor connection. While you are viewing your project on a DV/D8 camcorder, you can simultaneously record the project to the videotape by pressing Record on your camcorder.
DVD, VCD, SVCD and HD DVD
There are several factors to consider in choosing an output format for your project. These include your desired output quality, target playback device, and viewing screen size, among others. Here are the advantages and disadvantages that picking each output format entails: Digital Versatile Disc (DVD) is popular in video production because of its quality. Not only does it guarantee superb audio and video quality, it can also hold several times more data than VCDs and SVCDs. DVDs make use of the MPEG-2 format, which has a much bigger file size than MPEG-1, and can likewise be produced as single or dual-sided, and single and dual-layered. They can be played on standalone DVD players or on the DVD-ROM drive of your PC. Video Compact Disc (VCD) is a special version of a CD-ROM that uses the MPEG1 format. The quality of the exported movie is almost the same, but usually better than VHS tape-based movies. A VCD can be played back on a CD-ROM drive, VCD player, and even on a DVD player. Super Video CD (SVCD) is commonly described as an enhanced version of VCD. It is based on MPEG-2 technology with Variable Bit Rate (VBR) support. The typical
Audio-Video Interleave is a digital video file format designed specifically for the Microsoft Windows environment.
The recording of video or images to a computer hard disk.
These are utilities integrated with Ulead VideoStudio that allow the program to recognize capture devices and automatically detect them when they are connected to the computer.
A short section or part of a movie. A clip can be audio, video, still images or a title.
COmpress and DECompress. All videos on a computer uses a special algorithm or program to process video. This program is called a codec.
A simple background color used in a movie. It is often used for titles and credits since they stand out clearly against the solid color.
A video signal that combines luminance and chrominance. NTSC and PAL are examples of composite video.
Making a file smaller by removing redundant data. Nearly all digital video is compressed in some way or another. Compression is achieved through a codec.
The amount of data per second that is transferred from one part of your computer to another. In digital video, the data rate of your source is very important: CDROMs have lower data rates than hard disks. The data rate of the Internet is very low.
A software driver that allows programs to control video sources like the camcorder or VCR.
Computer data consisting of ones and zeros. Contrast digital information with analog.
The process of converting analog input to a digital form so that it can be used by the computer.
Digital Non-Linear Editing is a method of combining and editing multiple video clips to produce a finished product. DNLE offers random access to all source materials and all portions on the master tape at all times during the editing process.
A software program that controls the connection between a specific device and a computer.
Digital Video with a capital "D" and a capital "V" stands for a very specific format of video, just like VHS or High-8. This format can be understood (played back, recorded) by your camcorder and also by your computer, if you have the proper hardware (capture card) and software (DV codec). The most exciting thing about DV is that it can be copied from your camcorder to your computer, and then back to your camcorder (after editing, of course) without any loss of quality.
Abbreviation of MPEG Audio Layer-3. MP3 is an audio compression technology that produces near CD audio quality at a very small file size, making it transfer quickly over the Internet.
A standard for video and audio compression used in many products like VCD. For NTSC, its video resolution is 352x240 pixels at 29.97 fps. For PAL, it works at 352x288 pixels at 25 fps.
A subset of MPEG-1. It's a standard for video and audio compression used in products like DVD. For NTSC DVD, its video resolution is 720x480 pixels at 29.97 fps. For PAL DVD, it works at 720x576 pixels at 25 fps.
Non Linear Editing. Conventional editing on a VCR is necessarily linear because you must access clips on a video tape in order. Computer editing can be done in any order that is convenient.
Small audible or visual discrepancies that adversely affect audio and video files which have been recorded or captured incorrectly or with faulty equipment.
NTSC is the video standard in North America, Japan, Taiwan, and some other regions. Its frame rate is 29.97 fps. PAL is common in Europe, Australia, New Zealand, China, Thailand, and some other Asian places, which has a frame rate of 25 fps. There are other differences. In the world of DV and DVD, NTSC has the video resolution of 720x480 pixels, while PAL has 720x576 pixels.
These are the superimposed video or image clips over existing clips in your project.
Plug-ins are utilities that add more functions and effects to a program. In Ulead VideoStudio, plug-ins have made it possible for the program to automatically recognize capture devices as well as output videos for different purposes such as for e-mail, Web page, video greeting cards, and DV recording.
A Profile covers various attributes for a Windows Media Format file such as bit rate, number and type of streams, compression quality, frame size and so on.
In VideoStudio, a project file (*.VSP) contains the required information to link all associated image, audio, and video files. You need to open a project file first before starting video-editing in VideoStudio.
Rendering is the process of making a finished movie from the source files in a project.
A scene is a series of frames binded by continuity. In Ulead VideoStudio, each scene that is captured using the Split by Scene feature is based on the footage's recording date and time. In a captured DV AVI file, scenes can be separated into several files based on the footage's recording date and time or by changes in the content of the video. In an MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 file, scenes are separated into files based on content changes.
As a workaround to the 4 GB capture file size limitation in Windows systems that use the FAT 32 file system (such as Windows 98 and Windows Me), Ulead VideoStudio automatically saves captured video as a new file when this limitation has been reached. This method, known as seamless capture, allows the capturing process to be performed uninterrupted no matter how long the footage is. VideoStudio performs seamless capture when capturing DV Type-1 or DV Type-2 (from DV camcorder), or when capturing MPEG video (from DV camcorder or analog capture device). Windows systems such as Windows 2000 and Windows XP that are installed using the NTFS file system do not have the 4 GB limitation.
SmartRender technology renders only project changes, eliminating the need to rerender whole projects and enabling fast previewing.
This feature automatically splits up different scenes into individual files. In Ulead VideoStudio, the way scenes are detected depends on which step you are in. In the Capture Step, Split by Scene detects individual scenes based on the original footage's recording date and time. In the Edit Step, if Split by Scene is applied to a DV AVI file, scenes can be detected in two ways: by the recording date and time, or by the changes in the content of the video. Whereas in an MPEG file, scenes are detected only based on the content changes.
A storyboard is a visual representation of your movie. Individual clips are represented as image thumbnails on the timeline.
This is a relatively new Internet technology that allows large files to be played as they are being downloaded. Streaming is commonly used for large video and audio files.
Super Video CD (SVCD) is commonly described as an enhanced version of VCD. It is based on MPEG-2 technology with Variable Bit Rate (VBR) support. The typical running time of an SVCD is about 30-45 minutes. Although you could extend this to 70 minutes, you will have to compromise sound and image quality. SVCDs can be played back on stand-alone VCD/SVCD players, most DVD players, and all CDROM/DVD-ROM with a DVD/SVCD player software.
