There are several ways to import pre-recorded video into V1 Pro.
With a DV camcorder, you can import video directly from the camera’s video playback. Attach the camera to the V1, press play on the camera, and then use the V1’s Record functions.In this manner, you may either (1) Record continuous video and then later use the Trim function, or (2) record with the Use a microphone or mouse click mode, and manually trigger the impact points by clicking on the video at the appropriate times.
There is also a way to bring pre-recorded video files into the V1. Right-click or hold down the bin label corresponding to the bin into which you want to import. Click the Import button at the bottom of the bin window. This will allow you to browse your system for AVI, WMV and other video files. These files will be copied into the bin’s V1 Video Database folder, and will automatically be assigned the student, category, instructor, and tags specified by the bin’s view.
If you have a camera with built-in memory such as the Casio EX-F1, attach the camera to your PC with its USB cable and power it on. If auto-play has not been disabled on your system, the V1 should prompt you to name the device and then set your rightmost bin to display the contents of the camera’s memory. At this point you may open and play the video, but it still resides on the camera. If you would like to import video from the camera into your V1, select one or more of the clips and use the Move button. Specify any other bin, and the V1 will copy the selected video from the camera onto your V1’s hard drive.
Finally, you may simply copy video files into your V1’s video database folder. When you restart the software, these files will be imported. They will retain their existing filenames and will not be renamed with the database serial number.
