Use Transition Source
Click on these buttons to select one of the video sources from the host application.
This button displays a file requester, letting you select a single image, a sequence of images, or a video file. To select a sequence of images, simply select the first image in the sequence (each file of the sequence must be numbered sequentially). Hollywood FX currently supports Targa, Bitmap, and PNG images, as well as Video for Windows and Quicktime video files. Note that you can also select media by dragging-and-dropping media from the Album onto the Media item in the FX tree
When you select a video file, you should also set the Interpretation for that video file so that fields and frames are correctly rendered.
- If the video sequence consists of video frames that are not interlaced fields, then you should select this option.
Â· Separate Fieldsâ€“ If the video is stored as separate fields, select this option (most video is stored interlaced however).
Â· Interlaced â€“ Upper First: This option is used when the video source consists of interlaced frames (consisting of two fields), where the upper field is rendered first in time.
Â· Interlaced â€“ Lower First: This option is used when the video source consists of interlaced frames (consisting of two fields), where the lower field is rendered first in time.
Â· Single Image: Use this option when you are mapping an individual image, or you only want to use a single image from a sequence of images or video file.
For most video, one of the Interlaced interpretations will be used. Generally this should be the same field order as you set in your host application. Hollywood FX will remember the last Interpret setting for each type of media.
