Settings Timeline for Video

Setting Timelines for Videos

Watermark Master enables to process the fragments of a source movie instead of a whole movie.

 

To set a timeline (the source movie's fragment to be processed or, on the contrary, excluded from editing) for a source video file, go to the Timeline tab in the preview area of the main program window. Click the source file in the "Source Files" window.

 

Now click button on the Timeline toolbar or open menu Timeline > Add Timeline (or press "CTRL+ ALT+L"). The following parameters are available in the opened "Add Timeline" dialog window:

 

  • Start Point - the start point of the timeline (in hh:mm:ss.ms format, where hh - hours, mm - minutes, ss - seconds, ms - milliseconds).

  • Relative to End point - if enabled, the start point will be calculated relative to the end point.

  • End Point - the end point of the timeline (in hh:mm:ss.ms format).

  • Relative to Start point - if enabled, the end point will be calculated relative to the start point.

  • Relative to the end of file - if enabled, the end point will be calculated relative to the end of file.

  • End of file - if enabled, the end point will coincide with the end of file.

 

Adjust the parameters and click "OK". Now you can see the specified timeline marked with blue on the timeline ruler in the Timeline control. Click the timeline to view its properties in the "Properties" window.

 

Besides, a few parameters are available on the Timeline toolbar:

 

 

  • Mode - the way the specified timelines will be used:

 

    1. Process All Timelines - the produced video will include all specified timelines, the rest of the source file's parts won't be included.

    2. Process All except Timelines - the produced video will include no specified timelines, it will be composed of the rest of the source file's parts.

 

  • Timelines for current file - if enabled, the specified timelines will be applied to the selected file only; otherwise they will be applied to all source files. This option may be useful when you process a great number of files and want to set individual timelines for each of them.

 

 

Working with the Timeline Control.

 

A special control for working with timelines is located under the player on the Timeline tab. This control enables to set timelines visually.

 

 

To start working with the control, click a source file in the "Source File" window. Now to set the start point of a new timeline, click the required position on the timeline ruler. If the scale of the ruler does not allow you to select the required position precisely enough, you can zoom the ruler in using the ruler magnifier (located directly over the ruler).

After the slider is set, open menu Timeline > Add Check Point (or Add Start Check Point) or press "CTRL + 1" - the start point is assigned. Then move the slider to another position and again open menu Profile > Timeline > Set Point (or Set End Point) or press "CTRL + 1". Now both the start and end points are assigned, and a new timeline is created.

 

You can shift any added timeline by clicking and dragging it. To change the start or end point of any timeline, click and drag its left or right edge.

 

The following commands are also available in Timeline menu:

 

  • Expand to End of File - moves the end check point of current timeline to the end of file.

  • Move Start Point to Cursor - moves the start check point of current timeline to the slider position.

  • Move End Point to Cursor - moves the end check point of current timeline to the slider position.

  • Goto Start Point - moves the slider to the start check point of the most recently added timeline.

  • Goto End Point - moves the slider to the end check point of the most recently added timeline.

  • Goto Next Timeline - moves the slider to the start check point of the next timeline.

  • Goto Prev Timeline - moves the slider to the start check point of the previous timeline.

  • Clear Check Point - removes an odd check point.
