Dialog box reference ► Video Properties dialog

Right-clicking a video in the Video view and choosing Video Properties from the pop-up menu opens the Video Properties dialog box. This dialog box has three tabs—the Video Settings tab, the Info tab, and the Render Quality tab.
*
Clip. This field lists the name of the currently-loaded video file.
*
Start Time. If you don’t want the video to start playing until some later time in the audio project, fill in the time that you do want the video to start. For example, if you want the beginning of your video to start playing at measure 3 of your audio project, enter 3 in the Start Time field.
*
Trim-in Time. If you don’t want your video to start playing right at the beginning of the video file, enter the time in the video file (in SMPTE format) where you want the video to start playing. For example, if your video has 10 seconds of blank video at the front of the file, you can enter 00:00:10:00 into the Trim-in Time field, and SONAR skips the first 10 seconds of the video file and starts playing your video file at the 10 second mark in the video.
*
Trim-out Time. If you have blank or unwanted video at the end of your video file, enter the time (in SMPTE format) where you want to stop playing the video.
The Info tab displays various attributes of the inserted video, and also contains the More button, which displays a more extensive set of attributes.
*
Preview check box. Select this check box to cause the video in SONAR to display at a slightly lower quality: “preview” quality. This can cause slightly smoother playback.
*
Frame Rate (FPS). Use this field to change the frame rate. Lower frame rates free some of your computer’s resources for playing back music and other tasks.
*
Video Size, X and Y. The X field sets the video’s width, in pixels; the Y field sets height.
*
Restore Defaults. Click this button to set the three previous fields (including Preview) back to their default values.
