*1 Because an MPEG-1 generated in VBR (Variable Bit Rate) cannot, according to the specification, be specified as a Master Cip, this format cannot be outputted alone. Import this file with another file usable as a Master Clip (CBR [Constant Bit Rate] generated MPEG-1 file, DVD/Blu-ray or other standard compliant file...) and output it as a Rescue clip. (In such a case, the MPEG-1 VBR clip is entirely re-encoded at output.)


*2 Depending on the settings and device used, an audio gap may appear in the captured movie data. Use the trial version to verify the quality of your capture system.


*3 Transport stream importation tested with sources generated by a JVC GR-HD1 and a SONY HDR-FX1/HC1.


*4 Supports video files generated by the TMPGEnc series software encoder, most capture devices and DVD recorders.
