*1 MPEG-1 VBR (variable bitrate) file import is not supported.
*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 Microsoft TV PVR file (*.wtv) importation requires the computer that recorded the video, or a computer that supports Media Center PC video recording file playback.
WTV file importation is possible on the computer used to record the file, or on a computer able to create this type of file. Recordings copy-protected by a DRM scheme cannot be imported. Only WTV files containing MPEG-2, H.264/AVC video and MP2, AC3 or AAC audio can be imported.
*5 The video YUV colorspace is interpolated to the Type-2 DV codec used by our company for AVI input, allowing higher picture quality. Except for uncompressed AVI, AVI file input requires the codec corresponding to the format. Type-1 DV and other importations through DirectShow depends on the available environment. For this reason, it is normal for some AVI files to not be readable. Audio may not be available in the second clip when no more than one instance of a codec can exist at a given time within the system.
*6 QuickTime file importation requires QuickTime 7.7.6 or newer versions (audio may not be correctly processed in case of a multitrack audio source file).
*7 Data broadcasted live on the Internet is not supported. Files protected by the Windows Media Digital Copyright Management (DRM) are not supported. Files without a Seekable (cue) flag are not supported.
*8 PV3/4 video recording file importation requires the Hearth Soft "AviUtl plug-in EARTH SOFT DV.aui Ver.2.4.4 or Ver.3.0.1" correctly installed. Versions other than 2.4.4 and 3.0.1 do not function.
Recording data recorded with the AviUtl plug-in EARTH SOFT DV.aui Ver 2.4.4 require Ver. 2.4.4 to be imported, data recorded with the version 3.0.1 require Ver. 3.0.1 to be imported.
Processing the audio of a PV3/4 video recording requires that the audio format is LPCM.
*9 Importations through DirectShow or MediaFoundation requires the format CODEC (playback software). Available CODECs may differ depending on the computer. For this reason, it is normal that some files are not readable. Some specific formats used (VBR, ogg, etc.) may result in an audio gap or may not be outputted.
*10 Supports CBR and VBR.
*11 Dolby Digital audio importation supports data up to 5.1 channels, Dolby Digital Plus is up tp 7.1 channels.
*12 AAC (Advanced Audio Coding) importation supports audio data sources of up to 5.1 channels.
