"Save video sequence" operation

"Save sequence" operation allows to save sequences from the channels in the "Play" mode. Sequence can be captured in a real time from the input streams during direct "Play" operations. Played sequences can be saved from the both, primary or assistant, channels concurrently, or from the one channel only.

The fastest way to control "Save sequence" operations during direct "Play" operation is to click "Enable / Disable playing" buttons in the "Go" toolbar .

The fastest way to turn on and off "Picture In Picture" operations for the video sequences saved from then streaming channels during direct "Play" operation is to click "Enable / Disable 'Picture In Picture" buttons in the "View" toolbar .

Convert file / stream from one format to another

Frames of video sequences and individual images can be transformed using two rather different approaches, called "Just-in-time" (JIT) and "Re-encoding" (RE) transformations. A diagram shown in Figure 1 illustrates major video data processing phases in these procedures. If file format of the input sequence is different from the file format of the saved (output) sequence then the "Save sequence" operation is essentially a "File conversion" operation.

Breeze offers a big number of file conversion variants. See the topic supported video and image formats for more detailed information.

To perform a file conversion operation it is required:
  1. Select input sequence; video file or sequence of separate
  2. Specify parameters of a "Save sequence" operation, including file format of the file / files where data from the channel will be saved into
  3. Enable "Save sequence" operation, in the "Save sequence" options dialog
  4. Start playing a channel / channels.
Use buttons in the "Go" toolbar for a faster control of a "File conversion" operations.
