The Phota Video Player is
available to play Video files that might be associated with an Album introduction or with
individual photos. A
button on the Navigation Bar accesses the Video Player, and such buttons also
appear beside photos that are accompanied by Videos (if buttons are not hidden). A
Slide Show can be configured to automatically play Videos when
The Video Options screen provides parameters that control how animated Phota scenes are captured to Video files or as sequences of still image files. (Press the button on the Navigation Bar to access.) Either AVI or WMV (Variable Bit Rate or Contstant Bit Rate) Video files can be produced. Still Image Sequence files can be saved in most common image formats. Optionally, an Image Sequence Control File can be created along with an Image Sequence capture to contain timing data for each frame, allowing much more precise control over animation of the still images.
Just press the
button on the Navigation Bar to initiate recording. The Capture button
will change to while
recording. Press again (or hit the Esc key) to stop capturing.
Image Sequences can be played as animations with the Image Sequence Player, accessed via the button on the Navigation
Bar. The Image Sequence Player also provides options to record to AVI
or WMV Videos while playing animations. Particularly when using a Sequence
Control File, better efficiency and more precise control over timing is possible, often
resulting in captured Videos of greater quality.
