Creating movie templates

Movie templates contain settings which define how to create the final movie file. By using the preset movie templates provided by Corel VideoStudio, or by creating your own templates in the Make Movie Templates Manager, you can have multiple variations of your final movie. For instance, you can create movie templates that provide high quality outputs for DVD and videotape recording, and also set up movie templates that give lower quality but acceptable outputs for different purposes, such as Web streaming and e-mail distribution.

To create movie templates:

1 Select Tools: Make Movie Templates Manager. The Make Movie Templates Manager dialog box opens.

2 Click New. In the New Template dialog box, select the File format and type in a Template name. Click OK.

3 In the Template Options dialog box, set the options you want in the General and AVI/Compression tabs.

Note: The available options in the tabs will depend on the type of file format of the template.

4 Click OK.


· Movie templates will appear in a selection menu when you click Create Video File in the Share Step. If you do not want to use a movie template, you can select Custom from the pop-up menu. This allows you to choose your own settings for creating the final movie or simply use the current project settings.

· To modify the settings of a movie template, click Edit in the Make Movie Templates Manager dialog box.
