Before capture you can set preferences for your captured content. The capture preferences that are available, depend on the content you are capturing.
- to set a maximum capture length, select Time limit and then enter a time in the time code box.
- to set a maximum captured file size, select Size limit and then enter a size limit (in MB).
- to add a text remark, date or time code to captured video, click on .
- to take a still photo of a frame video for use in your project, just click on at the point where you want to take the snapshot and an image is saved to the Captured content area. You can specify your preferred snapshot image file format in preferences. See File Preferences for detailed information.
Note: when CyberLink PowerDirector captures content from a RichVideo compliant DV camcorder, timecode information is automatically captured as well. You can enable it in the Edit window using the Time Info button when the video clip is placed on the timeline. See Time Info for more information.
- select Non real-time when capturing from a camcorder to continue processing captured video after the original video stops playing in order to ensure that no frames are dropped.
- select Begin with fade-in to a add fade-in to audio captured with a microphone.
- select End with fade-out to a add fade-out to audio captured with a microphone.
- select Record at maximum speed to record CD audio at a higher speed. Capturing at a higher speed reduces processing time, but yields audio of a lower quality.
