Controls on the Input File Configuration Screen
Different groups of controls will be shown depending on the type of input file being
configured. Many items under Picture Settings and Audio Settings will be grayed-out
and disabled in the Free Edition.
- File Information & Settings
- Label text box - Displays or edits the name of this input file to show in the list on
the Main screen and all other input file lists.
- Change File Selection - Allows you to change or update the file that this input
- Trim - Opens the Trimming Tool to adjust
the start & end times within this input file.
- Audio Settings
- Volume - Adjusts the audio level from 0% to 200%. Clicking the Mute box is the same as
setting it to 0%.
- Balance - Alters the left vs right audio volume level. Setting it towards the left side will
increase the left volume relative to the right.
- Channels - Allows you to choose how the media source's left and right audio
channels are handled. For example, if your input media source only has audio from it's left
channel, you can select "Mono: Use Left Channel" to make that audio come through both
- Picture Settings
- Brightness - Brightens or darkens the image, from 0% (dark) to 200% (bright).
- Contrast - Adjusts the image contrast from 0% to 200%. This can be used to strengthen or
weaken definition in the image.
- Color - Boosts or diminishes the color intensity. 0% converts it to grayscale,
while 200% greatly amplifies the colors.
- Hue - Changes the image colors by -180 to 180 degrees.
- Sharpness - Adjusts the image sharpness from 0% (blurry) to 200% (sharp).
- Chroma Key - Makes a selected color in the media source invisible. The eyedropper tool
allows you to pick a color from any pixel currently displayed on your screen. The Choose
button can also help you visually select a color and set the Red, Green, and Blue values for you.
Color Range and Brightness Range determines the range of colors and brightness
levels that will be treated as a match for the selected color. Note: This effect is applied
before any other adjustment settings, so using the eyedropper tool on the preview image
will have reduced effectiveness when picture adjustments are in use.
- Cropping Distances from Each Edge - Selects the portion of the input files's picture to use.
These numbers represent the number of pixels to remove from each edge of the image. Click the
Edit Cropping Area button to set the cropping or zoom-in
- Mirroring - Flips the picture horizontally, vertically, or both. Setting this to
"Both" is the same as rotating the image by exactly 180 degrees, and can be useful when a
camera was mounted upside-down.
- Rotation - Rotates the picture by -359 to +359 degrees. A positive number will rotate it
counter-clockwise (CCW), and a negative number will rotate it clockwise (CW). A rotation
setting of exactly 180 degrees is the same as setting the Mirroring option to "Both",
and can be useful when a camera was mounted upside-down. This exact number will invoke the
mirroring/flipping feature, which will render faster and with better quality than other
