The box at the top of the Capture Preference window provides for either Quicktime Capture or AV Foundation Capture.

  • Allow code mode during capture – Code mode can be used in the code window to code instances at the location of the playhead in the timeline during capture. This allows you to code an event that has already happened and still continue to capture.

Note: Remember to switch back to capture mode in the code window to code instances in real time.

  • Close code buttons when pausing or resuming capture – when selected any code buttons current on when pausing or resuming a capture will be closed.
  • Show timeline movie during capture – When selected, the timeline movie window will appear along with the capture window.
  • Show timeline during capture – Employ this feature if you'd like to show the timeline during capture.
  • Zoom timeline during capture – The capturing timeline will automatically zoom in towards the default movie segment duration.
  • Update timeline regularly during capture – This allows the timeline movie to be played in a state of delay behind the capture movie without bumping into the end of the timeline.
  • Close window when capture stopped – When this option is selected, the capture window will be closed when capture has been ended.
  • Create single movie file after capture – This option will create a standalone movie from the timeline movie next to the capture package.
  • Use timecode produced from capturing device – Timecode generated from the capture device will be saved in the timeline timecode track.
  • Default movie segment duration – This preference sets this default duration. It is strongly recommended that you use a default setting of 1 minute unless timeline share updating is paramount. We recommend saving captured movie packages as standalone packages after capture.
  • Minimum movie segment duration – This is important for timeline sharing as it is readied for access by the timeline share process as quickly as possible. When a code button has ended, it signals the capture window to end the current movie part that is being captured in order to allow access to the latest captured video part in the timeline. So, if the setting of a code button was ended after 5 seconds of a movie part starting and this setting is set to 1 minute, it will take another 55 seconds for the movie part to be ended and ready for viewing in the timeline.

We recommend using 30 seconds for default duration and 10 seconds for minimum duration settings when using timeline share. Otherwise, use the default settings.

Note: Choosing Never and None for the above 2 options will create one movie part for the entire duration of the capture session.

  • Quick Recording Folder – This is the default folder where the capture package will be saved automatically when the Quickstart capture feature is used.
  • Quick recording Name – The default name that will be applied to a quick start capture file.
  • Resolve Blackmagic PAL Input – This is a unique setting required to support PAL composite video inputs for Blackmagic devices. Use this setting only when capturing standard definition PAL composite video feeds.
  • Force audio delay by NN seconds – If selected, an audio delay can be included in the capture process that nudges the audio track positive or negative once capture is complete. The nudge occurs in the timeline reference movie, the native movie parts are not adjusted.
