Combining special effect into clip (Manual Rendering) To combine special effects or audio (SBG files, etc.) set to a clip on the edit track, the rendering process (to form 1 video clip added with special effects) is necessary. Rendering is automatically carried out at the time of output, but you may render manually.
Note
Special effects include video effects, transition effects, and titles.
When you cannot add another effect because an effect which cannot be set with other special effects has already been set, you can add the new effect by manual rendering.
1.
Right-click the mark representing the special effect or audio file to be rendered and select [Render....].The rendering setting screen appears.
•The special effect marks are as follows:
:Video effect
:Transition effect
:Title
2.
Set the output destination and click [OK].
Rendering starts and a video clip combined with the special effect or audio is created.
When the rendering is completed, the special effect mark or the audio file will disappear.

•For the output destination, you can select it from the folders (the default is [MaterialFolder]) registered in the library.
•Rendering takes time. (It takes several times of the length of the edit data.) Do not operate the PC during rendering.
•If the transition effect is rendered, the part used for the transition effect will be cut from the clips before and after and then 1 video clip will be created.
Therefore, if a non-separable effect is set to the clip, first render it. Otherwise, you cannot render the transition effect.
Note
If 1 clip is rendered several times, the image quality will degrade in stages.
If a clip is rendered, a new video clip containing the special effect will be created, which is displayed in the library.
The format of the video clip created is MPEG2 format.
∫About the priority of special effects to be displayed
When multiple special effects are set in a clip, the priority of display is as follows. (The title is in the lowest priority.)
If you want to add a special effect in a different order, set only the effect to be applied first and carry out manual rendering.
(Right-click the mark of each effect, and select [Render....], to run the manual rendering.)

Special effects cannot be used normally
Special effects cannot be used normally The condition of the personal computer becomes unstable during rendering.
•Rendering operation uses a very high percentage of the processing power (load on the CPU) of the personal computer. So, when software other than MotionSD STUDIO is running, the rendering sometimes cannot be performed well.
When using MotionSD STUDIO, we recommend to exit other software.
Besides, if a file is copied or moved, or printing is executed, we recommend rendering after such operations are completed.
•The personal computer may be in an unstable state.
Exit MotionSD STUDIO, and then reboot the personal computer.
Rendering takes long.
•Rendering of a long video clip takes a very long time.
During rendering, do not operate the personal computer. If you operate it, rendering may not be accomplished satisfactorily in some cases.
You wish to insert special effects in any part of a long video clip.
•If you split a video clip, you can insert special effects in that part.
Place the clip on the track to divide it. (

)
When a transition effect is set, the length of the video changes.
•If a transition effect is set, the clips before and after the transition are shortened. This is because the transition effect is created by blending parts of those clips. (When the setting is cancelled, the original length is restored.)
This section covers the solutions to troubles that often occur when you use special effects.

Special effects cannot be used normally
•To restore the original lengths of the preceding and succeeding clips, double-click them and input their lengths on [Properties] screen. (It is impossible to make the video clip longer than on import. Even if you input a time longer than on import, it is corrected to the length on import.)
It is impossible to set the video effects, and delete transition effects.
•The maximum number of clips to be arranged on the edit track is 1024 and the maximum duration is 6 hours 45 minutes. In cases where such a maximum value is exceeded if the effects are set or removed, the message is shown and the original state is restored.
Delete clips to ensure margins of quantity and time, and then perform the setting or deletion again.
Special effects (e.g. title) are not inserted in order of setting.
•In cases where multiple special effects are set in a clip, the priority of display is as follows. (Title is assigned the lowest priority.) If you wish to insert special effects in an order different from the order of priority, first set only an effect you wish to insert, and apply manual rendering.

About video editing (Non-linear edit) with MotionSD STUDIO
About video editing (Non-linear edit) with MotionSD STUDIO What happens with imported images?
•Video imported from the SD Video Camera is imported to the folder designated in the SD Browser settings screen. (
42
)
Why does rendering take long?
•You can insert special effects in clips with the Video Effect and Transition Effect functions. At this time, however, complicated computations (digital processing) inside the personal computer are required to insert special effects in the original clips. This computation uses a very high percentage of the processing power of the personal computer.
Preventing the personal computer from executing other operations during rendering, if possible, enables stabler and faster rendering.
What features are convenient?
•You can apply various types of digital processing to video clips, and so can create video by use of complicated video effects.
What are points to keep in mind?
•Rendering uses a large amount of computer processing power. Accordingly, a fast CPU is required. This section describes general questions about overall video editing with MotionSD STUDIO.

Requests and tips •When using the MotionSD STUDIO, the personal computer may become unstable or the MotionSD STUDIO may abort.
Although depending on the usage of the personal computer, video editing requires a great deal of a personal computer’s CPU capacity and so the personal computer may become unstable. It is recommended to frequently save edited data.
•If frame recording system videos are imported and then rendered after adding video effects or transition effects, they will appear as field images with the same image quality as field videos.
•During outputting (recording), the bottom of the video displayed in the output device screen (e.g. video of a LCD monitor or of a TV set) may be distorted, or oscillate up and down. But this is not a malfunction. This does not affect recorded images.
•When using MotionSD STUDIO, use the AC adaptor as the power source for the notebook computer and the AC adaptor and battery as the power sources for the SD Video Camera. Otherwise, it may not be possible to record or capture the images properly. Furthermore, the performance of the CPU may be limited depending on the settings on the personal computer. (In this case, frame drop is liable to occur.)
•Do not turn off the SD Video Camera when you are using MotionSD STUDIO.
If you turn it off, MotionSD STUDIO may become inoperable.
•Do not disconnect the cable when you are using MotionSD STUDIO (while you transfer the data etc.). MotionSD STUDIO may not work properly or the data being transferred may be damaged.
•Do not connect 3 or more SD Video Cameras. The connection of 3 or more units is not supported.
•WAV (uncompressed) files cannot be used for audio mix editing, depending on their file formats (e.g., 4-bit WAV files).
•Although sound is sometimes interrupted in the preview of Audio Mix, it is not a malfunction.
•If you operate any window other than the MotionSD STUDIO window such as the taskbar when using MotionSD STUDIO, the previewed image may not be displayed in some cases.
•If you use an external monitor with the personal computer equipped with the dual display mode, the Preview screen may not be displayed.
•After installing MotionSD STUDIO, the personal computer, personal computer peripherals and other applications may become unstable. If this happens, uninstall MotionSD STUDIO. If other video editing software is already installed, we recommend uninstalling it and then installing MotionSD STUDIO.
