Direct video capturing to MPEG format
VideoStudio supports real-time capturing from DV, analog, or any video source to MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 formats. Capturing straight to MPEG saves hard drive space as its file size is smaller compared with DV AVI.
To capture video in MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 format:
1 In the Options Panel, select MPEG from the Format list to capture MPEG files that are intended for playback on the computer or for sharing on the Web.
You can also capture VCD, SVCD or DVD-ready MPEG files that can be burnt onto disc by selecting one of these formats from the Format list.
2 Click Options and select Video Properties. In the dialog box that opens, select a profile in the Current Profile drop-down menu.
When MPEG is selected in Format, you can also click Advanced to customize or add templates. The MPEG Settings dialog box then appears in which you can customize attributes for the MPEG file.
3 Click OK.
