Convert Movie Package

During capture, an extra movie package can be created. An additional compression process can be enabled that will compress a capturing file live using custom settings. This feature can be turned on at the bottom of the save dialog box when naming the capture file.

Select the “Convert movie package” tick box and set the desired compression settings. This option is only available when capturing using Device Native or Apple Intermediate codecs. An additional option to this, is to create single movie in the captured package once the export is complete. This will create a single file from all the movie segments inside the package. It is recommended to do this as it makes the package void of file references. A definite plus in terms of file portability, plus it allows the file to be extracted from the package and directly uploaded to Sportstec Stream or used more easily in some other workflow.

If the capture is stopped and their many movie parts left to convert, the extra compression will continue converting all the parts in the package until it is finished or the application is quitted. If the application is quitted while there are still movie parts left to convert it will start up again when the original movie package is opened again. Once the extra export is complete, a movie package with same name plus extra will be found in the same folder as the original capture.

An export can be paused, cancelled or deleted anytime. To pause press the pause icon in the row to the right of the progress bar. To cancel press the x icon to the right of the progress bar. To delete a row in the queue, select the row and press DELETE on the keyboard.

The export window supports multiple items in the list. It is based on a first in first out queuing system. So, more items can be added to the queue during capture and will be handled when the previous item above it in the queue is completed. To add more items to the queue during capture, say for instance multiple movie formats are desired, select the timeline window, then choose File > Export > Timeline as new codec…, select the movie format and destination and add it to the queue.
