Additional Editing Techniques 186 Printing to video When you want to print your finished movie to video tape, you use the Print to Video option. This option lets you display the movie at full screen on your computer monitor. If your movie is not in full screen resolution (640 x 480) you can zoom the movie to fill the screen, or you can display it at its smaller resolution with a black border. 1. 2. In the Timeline window, drag the work area bar over the portion of the video program that you want to record and press Enter (Windows) or Return (Mac OS) to build a preview file. Make sure that the video program preview plays to your deck or camera. If it does not, review the steps for preparing a digital video program for videotape recording in the documentation for your device. Make sure that your video recording device is on and that the tape is cued to the point where you want to start recording. Choose File > Export Timeline > Print to Video. Enter 1 second for Color Bars, 1 second for Play Black, and then select Full Screen (Windows) or Zoom Screen (Mac OS). 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. For the Play Black option, make sure that you enter a long enough time for the speed of the video recording device to stabilize before the video starts. Click OK, and start the video recording device. The movie plays at full screen on your computer or peripheral monitor. Because the movie created in this lesson is not full resolution (640 x 480), it appears pixelated or jagged. Choose File > Export Timeline > Print to Video again and don't select Full Screen (Windows) Note
