Help
Vitascene, Stylish transition effects and filters! 100% GPU processing power! 100%
interactive!
For discerning professionals who are looking for the best quality in the shortest time!
Of course, being multifunctional also means that it is much more demanding both in terms
of the quality and for the user. Although the operation of Vitascene has been designed very
intuitively, a certain period of familiarization is always required for high-performance
multimedia programs. We therefore recommend that you initially read this manual to get a
feeling for the program. You should definitely work through the tutorials. The worked
examples that are described there are specially tailored to help you learn how to use the
program and understand the systematic behind it. Only after completing the tutorials will
you have obtained a feeling for the hidden possibilities, many of which can only be achieved
by combining several program features. Once you have grasped the basic principles of the
tutorials, you should be in a position to create complex and demanding results after just a
few days. Further assistance is always available in the program help, which gives you an
overview of the comprehensive parameters and options that are available.
Help
Questions will always arise while working with programs. In Vitascene, you can get the
answers quickly and easily. The key is the integral program help, which is always available,
easily found and quickly leads you to a result. Simply open the menu Help.
Here, you also find an index for quick reference in a modern electronic form.
The manual supplied with the program (with the exception of OEM versions and demo
versions) as well as downloads or CD versions of this product) is actually only intended to be
an introduction to the program. The primary source of information and assistance, together
with a full overview of the software, can be found in the program's online help.
This manual shows you how to use the software and provides you with diverse systematic
information. For in-depth detailed information, you should refer to the aforementioned
online help.

Technology and System requirements
At the moment, you are provided with basic information on the technology by proDAD
Vitascene. One aspect that is particularly important for correct use is compliance with the
requirements in terms of your PC.
What is a GPU (graphics processing unit)?
Modern graphics cards have an extremely high level of computing power, which is vastly
superior to that of the CPUs used in PCs. With Vitascene this power is used to create effects!
Digital processing is carried out by the graphics card, speeding up the whole procedure
enormously.
Brand new technology – 50 times faster than it used to be – with an accelerated
GPU!
The advantages of GPU processing:
• up to 50 times faster than using a CPU
• perfect quality using 16 bit and 32 bit IEEE
• more precise processing for improved quality and sharper details
12
Is your computer suitable for GPU processing?
Click here to check your PC: GPU-Test
System requirements:
• Windows 64-Bit Vista, Win7, Win8, Win8.1, Win10, 2GB-memory (RAM)
• recommended: i7-cpu, 6 GB memory (RAM)
Possible limitations in terms of performance:
• An out of date graphics hardware driver
• An out of date version of DirectX
Tip:
Always keep your PC system up to date in terms of driver software for graphics cards and
your version of DirectX. We also recommend taking the GPU-Test to determine the capacity
of your graphics card.

Text with Ray filter and Key frames
The colorful title that is packed with effects (with text) has already been created with
proDAD Heroglyph using Alpha Keys (saved as a *.tif file).
Use the following settings for single frame export in Heroglyph.
Stand-alone use:
Or import the title direct into Vitascene, in order to apply the Ray filter or to modify the title
with drifting light reflections by using Key frames.
48
First start Vitascene, then go to the Filter-Presets and select the Ray filter (e.g. effect
#390) by double clicking in the Vitascene preview window. The effect is applied to the title
(created in proDAD Heroglyph) and light reflections are visible at the preview stage.
After saving the effect, the desired background (image or clip) will no longer be visible in the
preview window. To import our previously created image, go to the Navigation Menu in the
Source field and click on the Video A option.
This opens the Video A dialogue box. In the Source field click on the Type of fill option,
this opens a drop-down menu; select the Image / animation option. Then click on the
Folder button - to the right next to the Image drop-down menu - to select our image file,
for example, and import the file with the help of the Image option. The format 720x576
Pixel RGB + Alpha is displayed within the details of the graphics used.
The image file appears immediately in the Vitascene preview window (with the Ray filter
already integrated).
49
The Video A dialogue box also contains setting options for imported images (or clips) for
pixel-aspect, attributes and geometry.
For this workshop, use the original image without additional settings.
Now go to the Navigation menu in the Parameter field and click on the Filter option.
This opens the Filter dialogue box with various settings for the active Ray filter.
50
51
Here you can modify the settings for the Ray filter, but first go to the preview window and
check whether the Keyframes option is activated (key points during the course of an
animation, which have various properties at pre-determined times).
Without activation of the Keyframes option no changes in the effect, in relation to the
progress of an animation, will be shown. In this case, the settings will apply to all points in
time during an animation.
52
Now alter the setting for the Length option, selecting a value of 24%, for example, and set
the reduce flicker controller to 35%.
Now select the Bright Edge setting from the Scan Mode drop-down menu.
In addition, set the Threshold controller to 20% and, in the Method drop-down menu,
select the Motion Beam setting.
Set the Exposure controller to 4.50 and the Zoom controller to 1%.
53
The preview window will now display the effect of the Ray filter on the image used as
follows. Clear light reflections are visible within the Vitascene text, which run from the
centre of the image to the edge of the text.
Now alter the Ray effect with the help of the controller :
Composite = 0%
Scene-Intensity = 100%
And set the Glow-Intensity = 55%.
54
Leave the Highlight Color option as white and Highlight -Intensity at 25%.
Now select the Tint-Color Red (in relation to the rays of light), set the Tint-Intensity to
200% and Exposure Tint to 1.15.
The preview window will now display the effect of the Ray filter on the image used as
follows. Clear light reflections as well as Red discoloration is visible within the Vitascene
text.
55
Finally alter the position of the source of the rays of light in a horizontal and vertical
direction, use Key frames to do this (at the beginning and end of the animation).
First place the slider (position in the time axis beneath the preview) at the beginning of the
animation.
Then move the Horizontal controller to -57% and the Vertical controller to 46%.
The preview appears as follows.
Now place the slider (position in the time axis beneath the preview) at the end of the
animation.
56
Then move the Horizontal controller to 57% and the Vertical controller to 46%.
The preview appears as follows.
Now start an animation in the preview window with the help of the Play button. You will
notice that the light reflections move during the course of the animation. This movement is
created by placing a beginning Key frame and an end Key frame. Of course, you can position
further Key frames during the course of the animation. To do this, you need to place the
slider in the required position and then alter the effect properties using the controller.
Repeat this for each Key frame within the animation.
Note:
Naturally, you can shift Key frames within the Timeline, to do this place your mouse on a
Key frame, hold down the left mouse button and drag it to a new position in the Timeline.
You can also delete Key frames during the course of an animation, to do this place the slider
on the corresponding Key frame and press the Delete key on your keyboard.
To round off, click on the Color Adjustment option in the Navigation menu.
57
This opens the Color adjustment dialogue box, which provides access to the following display
settings for the image or video material used.
Apply Sparkle filter to an image (including by using
Key frames)
This tutorial provides information on the application and adjustment of a Sparkle filter in
relation to a selected image (or clip) in Vitascene. The use of Key frames is also discussed
here. To do this, for example, Sparkle rays are presented as an animation in the background
image (set in motion).
First start Vitascene, then go to the Filter Templates and select the Sparkle filter (e.g.
Effect #131) by double clicking in the Vitascene preview window.
Should you be running Vitascene in a stand-alone format, after saving the effect, the
58
desired background will no longer be visible in the preview window (but rather an example
image). To import our image, go to the Navigation Menu in the Source field and click on
the Video A option.
This opens the Video A dialogue box. In the Source field click on the Type of fill option,
this opens a drop-down menu; select the Image / animation option.
Then click on the Folder button - to the right next to the Image drop-down menu - to
select our image file, for example, and import the file with the help of the Image option.
The image file appears immediately in the Vitascene preview window (with the Sparkle filter
already integrated).
The Video A dialogue box also contains setting options for imported images (or clips) for
pixel-aspect, attributes and geometry.
For this workshop, use the original image without additional settings.
59
Now go to the Navigation menu and click on the Filter-Presets option.
This opens the Filter-Presets dialogue box with various templates and settings for the
active Sparkle filter.
Now go to the Navigation menu in the Parameter field and click on the Filter option.
This opens the Filter dialogue box with various settings for the active Sparkle filter
(without filter templates, since a template is already applied in the preview window).
60
Here you can modify the settings for the Sparkle filter, but first go to the preview window
and check whether the Keyframes option is activated (key points during the course of an
animation, which have various properties at pre-determined times).
Without activation of the Keyframes option no changes in the effect, in relation to the
progress of an animation, will be shown. In this case, the settings will apply to all points in
time during an animation.
61
Now stop the preview by clicking on stop. Leave the beginning Key frame with its current
settings (see preview or current controller position). Next, move the slider to a new position
during the course of an animation. No new Key frames will be placed, unless you enter the
first setting in the Sparkle dialogue box, in relation to the current position in the Timeline.
Now alter the following settings using the controller:
Glow-Intensity = 70%
Spot-Intensity = 0%
Orientation = 60%
and reduce flicker = 54%
This will create the following preview for the 2
effect with the help of the Play button.

Now stop the preview by clicking on stop. Now move the slider to a new position during the
course of an animation. No new Key frames will be placed, unless you enter the first setting
in the Sparkle dialogue box, in relation to the current position in the Timeline.
Now alter the following settings using the controller:
Length = 25
Erosion-Threshold = 91%
Glow-Intensity = 70%
Spot-Intensity = 0%
Orientation = 80%
and reduce flicker = 30%
This will create the following preview for the 3. Key frame. Start the preview to look at the
effect with the help of the Play button.
63
Now stop the preview by clicking on stop. Now move the slider to the end position during
the course of an animation.
Now alter the following settings using the controller:
Length = 20
Highlight-Threshold = 20%
Erosion-Threshold = 13%
Glow-Intensity = 30%
Spot-Intensity = 0%
Orientation = 90%
and reduce flicker = 20%
This will create the following preview for the End-Key frame. Start the preview to look at the
effect with the help of the Play button.
64
Now stop the preview by clicking on stop.
Now you can process the animation as a video clip in preview, with the help of Export.
Note:
Naturally, you can shift Key frames within the Timeline, to do this place your mouse on a
Key frame, hold down the left mouse button and drag it to a new position in the Timeline.
You can also delete Key frames during the course of an animation, to do this place the slider
on the corresponding Key frame and press the Delete key on your keyboard.
This completes application of the Sparkle filter in connection with the use of Key frames in
the Timeline.

Apply Shape Wipe transition effect (with integrated
Sparkle effect)
This tutorial focuses on the use of a transition effect from the Shape Wipe Gallery.
Vitascene is used as a plug-in to video editing software (e.g. Pinnacle Studio).
Double click on the Vitascene Transition in the Timeline (appearing in grey between the
clips), Vitascene will start, the video material from the video editing software will appear in
the preview window.
Choose a suitable transition from the Filter Templates (e.g. Sparkle Circle Wipe #46). A
playback with the selected transition will appear in the Vitascene preview window in real
time. Video A is faded into video B. Of course, you can modify the transition in Vitascene to
suit you.
66
Now go to the Timeline beneath the preview window, stop playback and place the slider in
the position of your choice.
Leave the Beginning Key frame with its original settings, as the fade out is no longer
visible in the preview window and the process should start from zero (centered).
67
Now go to the lower section of the Templates dialogue box, where there are 3 folders
(Impression, Location and Filter).
Select the following settings in the Impression folder, in relation to the Key frame
positioned during the course of an animation:
A/B Sharpness = 150%
Opacity = 30%
There will be no settings in the Location folder, as the position of the circle remains
centred.
In the Filter folder select the following settings for the Sparkle effect.
Length = 10
Highlight-Threshold = 60%
Erosion-Threshold = 30%
and Orientation = 30%

Location or Filter folders, in relation to the current position in the Timeline.
Select the following settings in the Impression folder, in relation to the Key frame
positioned during the course of an animation:
A/B Sharpness = 160%
Opacity = 40%
There will be no settings in the Location folder, as the position of the circle remains
centered.
In the Filter folder select the following settings for the Sparkle effect.
Length = 10
Highlight-Threshold = 80%
Erosion-Threshold = 30%
Glow-Intensity = 100%
Orientation = 60%
and reduce flicker = 70%
This will create the following preview for the 3. Key frame. Start the preview to look at the
effect with the help of the Play button.
70
Parallel to the enlarged circle (increased by the time passed since the 2nd Key frame) a
greater number and more powerful rays (Sparkle) are visible.
The End-Key frame is not modified any further as it is no longer visible (at this point in
time the circle has gone beyond the visible area of the preview window).
This completes creation of the Shape Wipe transition effect (as the basis for Sparkle Circle
Wipe #46). Simply return to Pinnacle Studio using the F12 key or by clicking on the symbol.
This will automatically save the Vitascene project.
71
The Navigation menu contains more additional effect options.

How to create a miniature landscape in a real video
This tutorial provides information on the use of an effect from the Tilt Shift-gallery.
Vitascene will be used as a Plug-in to a video editing software (e.g. Sony Vegas). Our aim is
to create an animated Focus Point on people appearing in the foreground while the other
areas of the image are depicted blurred. Apart from that, we want to intensify Color and
Contrast. We will also use keyframes. In order to put all this into practice, we will use the
effect combination Tilt Shift.
After putting the clip/frame into the timeline of Vegas, apply the Vitascene Filter (from the
register Effects in Vegas) in your material. Start Vitascene and go to Filter-Presets (1)
and choose the Tilt Shift filter, e.g. the Miniature Look Centre #630 effect (2) by
double-clicking it. You can see the selected effect with the default setting immediately in the
Vitascene preview (3).
First of all, we place the beginning keyframe to the clip. Move the slider in the timeline to
the beginning. Make sure the Keyframes option is activated.
The Keyframes enable us to create an additional animation of the Tilt Shift effect in the
video. We will set 3 Keyframes - one at the beginning, one in the middle and one at the end.
75
First go to the Defocus register(1) to increase Focus (2) to 10. As a consequence, we will
discern much better the areas with a high sharpness level from those which are blurred (3).
Now go to the Focus Point register(1) to put the focus on the people. To achieve this aim,
move the Vertical slider (2) to 35%. Then move the Iris slider (3) to 80%. This increases
the extension of the Focus Point. You will see the changes instantly in the Preview (4).
76
Now move the keyframe slider in the Vitascene timeline to the middle position.
Go again to the Defocus register (1) to increase the Focus (2) to 12.
77
Now go back to the Focus Point register(1) to alter the position of the Focus Point in the
video. Move the Vertical control button (2) to 25% in order to put the focus on the people
at the entrance of the subway station. Then move the Iris slider (3) to 85% to make the
Focus Point smaller. Now alter the Rotation value (4) to 70. The change of the part with
a high sharpness level can be seen immediately in the Preview (5). This completes the
setting of a new Keyframe (6) in the middle position.
Now increase the A/B Sharpness (1) value to 280% to make the transition between areas
with a high sharpness level and those with a low sharpness level appear harder. You can see
this immediately in the Preview (2).
78
Now move the Slider to the ending position of the Vitascene timeline.
Go again to the Defocus register (1) and increase the Focus (2) to 5.
79
Now go back to Focus Point register (1) to change the position of the Focus Point in the
video.
Set the Vertical slider button (2) to 0% to put the focus on the center part of the bus.
Then move the Iris slider (3) to 75% in order to increase the Focus Point which now
occupies the area where the people are. Now alter the Rotation value (4) to 40 as well as
the A/B Sharpness value (5) to 130%. You will notice the change of the sharply depicted
middle part of the bus immediately in the Preview (6). This completes the setting of a new
Keyframe (7) at the ending position of the timeline.
Finally, we will change the Color and the Contrast setting at every Keyframe. In order to
do so, go to the Color register (1).
Move the Contrast (2) and Saturation (3) control buttons according to your preferences.
You will see the changes immediately in the Preview (4).
80
Note:
The settings for Color and Contrast that you can see in the screenshot above are only the
ones that have been carried out in the ending keyframe. In order to put the settings of the
other keyframes, it is necessary to move the slider to the middle- and to the beginning
keyframe where you repeat the procedure.
This completes the settings for the effect combination Tilt Shift. Press the F12-Key or click
on the symbol
to return to Sony Vegas.
81
The effect will be applied to the video in the Vegas timeline and can be seen in the Preview.
Note:
If you are using Vitascene as a stand-alone version, you can now save this Tilt Shift
animation via Export/Animation as an AVI file.

Navigation
In the Navigation menu click on the Overview option
the dialogue box Start page / Navigation overview is displayed as follows:
In the Navigation menu of Vitascene are further options available :
85
Filter-Presets
The Filter Templates dialogue box contains 2 groups in the Root folder, sorted by Filter
group and Transition group.
The Filter group contains further Folders, which in turn contain numerous effect templates
that are ready for use.
The Transition group contains further Folders, which in turn contain numerous effect
templates that are ready for use.
86
To select a Filter template, go to a Template folder (e.g. Filter group / Film Look - Extrem),
where effect templates are displayed. By double clicking on the effect of your choice, you
will transfer it into the preview window.
87
Preview
For a short time, show the current status of the project as a rendered preview.
Let's assume that you have created a Sparkle effect and want to watch the current status as
a rendered preview animation, you can carry this out here easily.
Create as
Animation as preview = Rendering an animation file with immediate playing options
Control
Display of the current status in the real time preview
Playback
Display of the currently created timeline area in the animated real time preview
Click on Create as
this opens the Animation as preview dialogue box.
88
preview settings for :
Period, Rate, Quality, Scale, Frame type, Rendering, Codec, Driver, Key frames and file
directory
89
Export
Here you can choose your desired type of export:
Animation = Animation file (e.g. AVI, MPG, WAV, etc.)
Single frames = Export into an index of one picture or a continuous picture sequence
Export - Animation - AVI
The following parameter enables the individual display of animation (see below for settings)
90
Time period
This is where you can adjust the temporal data for the active timeline object using the
keyboard.
Rate
This is where the frames per second are modified. Pre-selections for PAL and NTSC are
available for easy access.
Quality
This is where the quality level is chosen:
low: produces the fastest, but qualitatively poorest results when
• working, i.e. for previews, ideal for low-performance computers or
when using complicated animations in objects
• medium: produces somewhat softer results than low
good: best possible display of glyphs, but only crude display of
•
graphics/animations
premium: best possible preview quality, soft glyphs and sharp textures.
• A interference reducing device is additionally used in case of small
contours.
This setting requires the most rendering time, especially if animations are used.
Scale
This parameter is used to quickly halve the set format values. It is also ideal for calculating
an animation rendering of the highest quality, but to reducing it by decreasing the rendering
time.
Frame type
Here you can set the half or full frame parameters.
If you want to export a result, but either the editing software's project settings or the video
hardware requires a change of the half frame sequence, this can be adjusted simply.
"Full frames" is especially required for Web animations or results that are to be used
elsewhere other than in the video application.
91
If a comb effect is evident in the rendered result, this probably means that the incorrect half
frame type is selected. If the result is slightly jerky, it may be necessary to change the
settings from Full frame to Half frame.
In some parameters of other cutting products these half frame settings have a different
name:
• Upper first = even
• Lower first = odd
Optimizing for video
This filter should always be selected if the end result is designed for video output.
Advantage: less picture interference, optimized color spectrum.
When the filter is switched off there is a speed advantage in calculating of about 20%, but
with this it brings a lower quality during video usage.
Rendering
This is where you can establish the format in which an animation will be used (AVI) and how
the Alpha channel should be controlled.
• RGB+Alpha computation (in a graphic): 24 Bit RGB color data as well
as 8Bit alpha channel data is stored in a file. The data can nevertheless
be called up separately and is not yet offset.
• RGB offset with alpha: 24 Bit RGB color data as well as 8Bit alpha
channel data is stored in a file (already offset).
Export RGB-Stream as
This is where the animation output format (AVI) is determined.
File
This is where the path, together with the output folder, in which the individual image
sequence is issued, are determined.
Codec
the codecs available are already checked on selection. Why? Some codecs do not register
correctly in the system. If the export process is then started, a system error appears that
looks as though Heroglyph could not export with this codec. The real reason, however, is
usually an insufficient system integration of the codec - or of course a different alignment to
other media (e.g. special media players, etc.). If error checking brings up results these will
be shown in the codec's info window (codec does not support format, etc.)
Important: as some codecs transmit a default error code in this checking the real cause for
error can not always be determined correctly. Even an incorrect data path can cause an
export process to fail. Therefore, please always check the export path's validity (especially if
removable media, RAM discs, etc. are used).
Important Note:
Raw format : ideal for uncompressed animation files (AV) for usage in studios without
possible plug-ins. Supports RGB-A (inclusive of alpha channel!)

The Button
By clicking this button the animation rendering will start.
The codecs registered in the system that allow data to be written are
•
always offered for export.
without applying the scaling option the format of animations is always
•
equal to the format in export/format
AVI animations cannot contain an alpha channel and are therefore not
to be used, if in the final usage the Keying per alpha channel is
•
possible. The possibility of single frame sequence export via TIFF or
TGA 32 can be applied here.
Export - Single frames
This is where the settings are set for rendered single frames sequences that are to be
exported.
The following options are available:
93
Time period
This is where you can adjust the temporal data for the active timeline object using the
keyboard.
Rate
This is where the frames per second are modified. Pre-selections for PAL and NTSC are
available for easy access.
Quality
This is where the quality level is chosen:
low: produces the fastest, but qualitatively poorest results when
• working, i.e. for previews, ideal for low-performance computers or
when using complicated animations in objects
• medium: produces somewhat softer results than low
good: best possible display of glyphs, but only crude display of
•
graphics/animations
premium: best possible preview quality, soft glyphs and sharp textures.
• A interference reducing device is additionally used in case of small
contours.
This setting requires the most rendering time, especially if animations are used.
Scale
This parameter is used to quickly halve the set format values.
It is also ideal for calculating an animation rendering of the highest quality, but to reducing
it by decreasing the rendering time.
Frame type
Here you can set the half or full frame parameters.
94
If you want to export a result, but either the editing software's project settings or the video
hardware requires a change of the half frame sequence, this can be adjusted simply.
"Full frames" is especially required for Web animations or results that are to be used
elsewhere other than in the video application.
If a comb effect is evident in the rendered result, this probably means that the incorrect half
frame type is selected. If the result is slightly jerky, it may be necessary to change the
settings from Full frame to Half frame.
In some parameters of other cutting products these half frame settings have a different
name:
• Upper first = even
• Lower first = odd
Optimizing for video
This filter should always be selected if the final result is to be used for video output.
Advantages: less picture interference, optimized color spectrum.
Although deactivating this filter will increase the rendering speed by approx. 20%, this will
diminish the quality when using the result for video productions.
Rendering
This is where the format that is used for the single frame sequence (TIF, JPG, PNG, TGA,
PPM, SGI) is defined and also how the alpha channels are to be controlled.

Search path for images/animations
The global search paths are defined here. When loading a project the corresponding
components, such as graphics or animations are searched for. In principle, these
components are not embedded in a project file. This has the advantage that the project file
can be kept much more compact.
However, the disadvantage that comes up is that an uploaded graphic must always be
stored in the location that is pointed at. This can create problems if you want to transfer the
project to another PC, for example. However, this parameter eliminates the problem:
If a project is opened on another PC that has a different drive environment, the components
only have to be located in one of the search paths selected here in order to be found.
You can create a search path by clicking New.
Please note: No sub-folders will be searched.
97
Alternative video sources
This setting dialogue box is used to determine video source A and/or video source B.
You can import the following formats into Vitascene, to do this click on the customize
option:
Note:
In plug-in operation, it is not possible to choose the source, as the Vitascene filter is
applied directly to a clip (host video) from the video editing software, for example. The same
applies to the use of Vitascene as a transition.
98
Specialization customization
This setting dialogue box is used to compile the setting options for an effect.
To select an effect, click on the New button, it appears in the dialogue box.
Click on the New button again, this opens a list of effects.
99
Now select the Video Filter / Color Adjust effect.
This will be transferred into the Edit page dialogue box and displayed as follows:
Under Category you will see the following options:
100
Select the Video A option, for example, this will be set as a Category.
In the lower section, you can see Available elements and Current elements for an effect.
By double clicking on an element (e.g. Inverse) in the Available elements window, you can
transfer this element to the Current elements window. You are then offered the Inverse
option, to check, simply click on the Test button. This opens the Test dialogue box with an
integrated Invert option, which can now be used.
In this way, you can include and display any effect functions in the list of templates as
Specializations.
101
Video format
Here you can define the video format that you wish to transfer via the plug-in interface or
the export functions later.
Set the width and height settings, the overscan limit, the frame rate, as well as the pixel x/y-relationship.
Either use the preset basic settings for HDV, HDTV, 16:9, Cineon, PAL, NTSC, etc. or use
any desired format in order to operate your target medium with Vitascene.
available formats :
102
Video overscan, width and height
This setting represents the entire, i.e. the maximum useable area (the resolution).
The export of data and the preview of animations are carried out with this value.
Text overscan, the title save area
If used, this value is generally smaller than the video overscan.
If, for example, 700 * 556 pixels are selected as opposed to 720 width and 576 height in the
video overscan,
a reserve area is created that should not be touched.
Within this area no layout measures should be carried out, as objects that reach into this
area may be cut off or disappear completely in critically set TV appliances.
Tip:
Vitascene can also be used for graphic animation, such as for the final application in Internet
banners. For this the width and the height of the final banner should be input under video
overscan in order to prevent rendering of unnecessary areas in the preview and save the
cutting procedure to reach the final size.
Smaller formats are always shown from the zero coordinate, top left.
103
Background / borders
This is where the user interface design can be freely adjusted according to personal taste
and used monitor type.
First of all, the user can select between 3 pre-defined patterns and one free setting:
Automatic: neutral editing area with slightly darkened borders and
outer areas.
freely configurable: this is where the individual color adjustments can
•
be carried out according to personal taste.
• black: dark editing area with lighter borders and outer areas.
• white: light editing area with darker borders and outer areas.
•
This is what the different elements mean:
visible background: corresponds to the video overscan minus the text
•
overscan.
• invisible area: this is the area which borders on the visible background
Duration
This setting dialogue box is used to determine the length of the applied effect.
Note:
The length of an effect cannot be altered during plug-in operation (i.e. operating Vitascene
from video editing software).
104
Language - User interface
Here you can define the user interface's language.
The selected language is used while the program is running. It is not necessary to restart
the software.
Undo
This is where you set the number of the dynamically saved undo steps.
Theoretically the number of the steps is unlimited, but every saved undo step in between
takes up memory. Therefore, this value should not be set unnecessarily high.

project. Prior to this, the Keyframes option beneath the Timeline must be activated.
Then move the slider within the Timeline to a position of your choice, go to the effects
window and use various controllers to alter the effect properties in relation to this Key frame
(or position during the course of an animation). Next, move the slider again within the
Timeline to another selected position and enter the effect settings again, in relation to the
current position. In this way, you can place any number of Key frames within a project and
create your own animation.
