Publisher's View




Overview


This is the final stage in rendering your move into a video file format. You can create a video which can be watched by other people without the Moviestorm software or that you can use in an outside video editor such as Windows Movie Maker or Sony Vegas. After selecting all the required options you render the movie by clicking the Export Movie button. When rendering is complete you are given the option to view the file or upload it directly to the Moviestorm or YouTube websites.

Formats


There are four options presented here, the first three being generic settings for displaying your film on different devices and the fourth, Custom option, which allows you to manually select all of the render settings.



Small


This is optimized for Mobile phones and other PDAs etc.


Medium


This is optimized for Laptop sized screens.


Large


This is optimized for larger screens e.g. Televisions


Custom


The custom option opens another panel which has several global options at the top and four tabs underneath for specific types of render methods.

Global options

Render folder - Allows you to choose the output folder for your movie.

File name - Allows you to choose the filename for your movie.

Start Time - The start point for the render.

End Time - The end point for the render.

Resolution - Allows you to choose the output screen size.

FPS - Allows you to choose the frame rate for your movie.

Add Moviestorm Watermark - You can decide whether to show the small Moviestorm symbol in the bottom left of your movie. If you choose one of the Default Formats you don't have the option to switch this off.

Render each Clip - This option will create a separate consecutively numbered video file for each clip on the Cutting room time line.


Render Methods

Default Renderer - By default Moviestorm renders out a .MPEG format wrapped in a .AVI file. There is a drop down list from which you can choose Ultra, High, Medium and Low quality output. The choice affects the overall file size as well as the image quality.

Windows Video - Render to a .wmv file format. There is a drop down list from which you can choose High, Medium and Low quality output. The choice affects the overall file size as well as the image quality.

Systems Codec - This option allows you to choose from a range of Directshow filters which are installed in Windows. There are separate dropdown selectors for Video and Audio codecs. There is also a tick box option to display video and audio options in a new window. (This doesn't seem to work properly - e.g. pressing "cancel" just goes ahead and renders.)

Image Sequence - This option allows you to create a .jpg or .png file from every frame in your movie. It requires a great deal of disk space.
