FAQ of Editing Files

1. How to find the 3D effect setting interface?
Method One: Click Edit in menu bar and select 3D.
Method Two: Click 3D icon in toolbar.
Method Three: Click Edit-3D in toolbar.
Method Four: Click Settings in the bottom of the main interface and find 3D settings.

2. What is the difference between Anaglyph and Split screen in the 3D settings?
Anaglyph setting is an early 3D technology, represented by red and blue anaglyph. There are two colors in one image and the combination of them makes 3D effect. This setting has low requirements of hardware. Just with a pair of red/blue glasses can you watch 3D movies on ordinary display/TV. Other color separation has same principle.
Split screen setting has 4 modes including side by side full and half width, top and bottom full and half width. Through the combination of images in left and right eyes, the 3D effect can be shown in corresponding devices. Split screen setting has high image quality as well as high requirements of hardware. It needs PC or HDTV capable of playing 3D videos and corresponding glasses.

Tips: In Side by side/ top and bottom full settings, the width and height of output file are twice of the corresponding resolutions of output profile. When setting this, please make sure the corresponding resolution is supported by the playing device.

3. Why cannot the converted 3D video play on TV?
If prompted format unsupported, please make sure the format is playable on your device. Meanwhile, you can select other output settings in profile settings. If the problem still exists, send us the related information of your device, such as the TV model and manufacture, also with the convert settings. Send to: support@4videosoft.com.

4. Why are there interlacing bands when playing the output file?
If the source file is interlaced scanned, you need check Deinterlacing in Edit-effect. There will be bands if it's not checked.

5. How to set 3D left right effect?
Click Edit-3D and change Switch Left Right setting. Unchecked by default, users feel far from the screen. Checking it produces different effect. However, the 3D screen effect is partly decided by the effect of source file

6. Why cannot the depth be set if the source file is 3D video?
If it is 3D video, the output 3D video draws the left and right image of source file and compounds them into 3D. There's no special processing so that the original 3D effect can be kept

7. What are the effects for the Letterbox, Medium, Pan & Scan and Full of the Zoom Mode?
Zoom Mode offers four options to crop the screen, satisfying various needs of users.
1) Letterbox: A lossless zoom mode. Lossless means there's no loss in image and the aspect ratio is normal. If the original aspect ratio changes, there will be letterbox on the output screen.
2) Medium: A lossy zoom mode between Letterbox and Pan & Scan. If the original aspect ratio changes, part of the screen will be cut to fill up part of the letterbox.
3) Pan & Scan: A lossy zoom mode. Lossy means there may be loss in image content. If the original aspect ratio changes, part of the image will be cut off.
4) Full: No loss in image content. But when the original aspect ratio changes, the image is stretched to the required ratio, so there will be tensile deformation in image.

8. How to get rid of the black boarder?
If there's no black boarder in original video, you can set the Aspect Ratio of Profile and source file, which can be viewed by right clicking the file and opening property.
If there's black boarder in original video, click Edit-Crop. And then crop by requirements, cutting off undesired parts. If it's still not the ideal effect, adopt Zoom Mode, check the Output Preview effect and save the satisfying setting.

9. How to adjust the image color?
Click Edit-Effect, adjust the Brightness, Contrast, Saturation and Hue to the satisfying effect.

10. How to adjust the volume of the output file?
If the volume of the original file is too loud/low, click Edit-Audio to adjust the volume.

Set Video Parameters

Video Settings

Encoder: "Encoder" stands for video Codec. Different Encoder exists certain difference in efficiency and quality such as h.264 and mpeg-4, etc.

Frame Rate: Set the number of broadcast frames for per second. The higher the frame rate is, the more smoothly the video plays. It usually needs 30 fps when the picture is consistent, but the performance up to 60 fps can significantly enhance mutual inductance and realism. However, generally speaking, when it is more than 75 fps, it is not easy to feel the improved fluency significantly. If the frame rate is more than the screen refresh rate, this will only waste the ability of graphics processing because the monitor cannot be updated so fast. In this case the rate which is more than the refresh rate is wasted.

Resolution: Resolution means the video size in Width (pixels) x Height (pixels). The higher the resolution is, the more the video contains the pixels and the clearer the video picture. At the same time, it also can increase the size of output file.
Tips:Resolution can be selected or entered in the form of '* XXX XXX'.

Aspect Ratio: Aspect ratio refers to width to height ratio according to the screen aspect of the playback device. The supported input formats are 4:3, 16:9, etc.
Note: The aspect ratio can be selected or input with 1.33, 1.77.

Video Bitrate: Video bitrate is also called the code rate, refers to either a constant number of bits used to Encode each second of video or the average number per second (in kbit/s). the number of video bits used in coding every second or the average number of bits per second, commonly used the Kbps as the units that is one thousand bits per second. The bigger the video Bitrate is, the better the image quality is, and the larger the size of output file is.

FAQ:

1. How to customize the output Resolution?
Click Settings in the output area to enter Profile area, input the required resolution in the form of XXX*XXX.

2. How to customize the output Aspect Ratio?
Click Settings in the output area to enter Profile area, input the required ratio of width and height in Aspect Ratio.

3. Why the output image quality is worse than the original?
The output image quality is affected by following factors: 1) The quality of source file. The output image quality is close enough to but won't exceed the original quality. 2) The output quality is closely related to the video coding, resolution and video bitrate. You are recommended to select similar settings in Profile Settings to the source file.

Set Audio Parameters

Audio Settings

Encoder: It stands for Audio Codec, converting media files to the designated format.

Sample Rate: Sampling rate refers to a sampling frequency of an analog to digital conversion. Sampling rate is measured in samples per second. The higher sample rate is, the better the aural effect is.

Channels: You can select 1 (Mono), 2 (Stereo) and 5.1. Note: It is recommended that if you want to get the 5.1 channel, the source file should be 5.1 so that the output effect can be truly realized 5.1.
Tips: Resolution can be selected or entered in the form of '* XXX XXX'.

Audio Bitrate: The audio bitrate refers to either a constant number of bit used to Encode each second of audio or average number per second (in kbit/s). The higher Audio Bitrate is, the better the sound quality is, while the output file size is larger.

FAQ:

1. How to select the 5.1 output sound track?
If the Audio Encoder is one of AAC, AC3, AU, FLAC, WAV and DTS, you can select 5.1 audio track in Channels. But the real 5.1 effect can be realized only if the original audio track is 5.1.

2. Why some speakers has no sound when the output file is set with 5.1 sound tracks?
The real 5.1 effect can be realized only if the original audio track is 5.1. If the original audio track is less than 5.1, the output file keeps the original audio.

Set 3D Effect

3D Settings

Enable 3D Settings: Tick off it to set the 3D effect.

Anaglyph: There are 10 colors for selection. And red and blue is the most popular and the best one among the color separation technology. Users can make a selection according to their own needs because such color has low requirement to the hardware, but only a pair of glasses with corresponding color, e.g red and blue glasses. The output file can be displayed on ordinary monitor / TV.

Split Screen: Split screen mainly contains four settings including Side by Side (half-width), Side by Side (full), Top and Bottom (half-height) and Top and Bottom (full). It shows the 3D effect on the corresponding device through the stack of left and right eye images. Split screen can show the high quality but at the same time it needs high requirement to the hardware. It needs the pc and high-definition television that can support the 3D effect and the corresponding glasses.
Tips: For Side by Side (full)/Top and Bottom (full), the corresponding to the width/height of the output file is two times to the corresponding resolution value in the Profile. When choosing the Settings, please ensure that the device can support the corresponding resolution.

Switch Left Right: When unchecked, it is the screen effect, that is, the image is far from the viewer; when checked, it is the out of screen effect, namely, the picture is closer to the viewer. It has something to do with picture effect of source file whether the 3D effect is obvious.

5. In what circumstances is the acceleration effective?
Under the condition of acceleration available, when the Encoder of Video settings is selected as H.264, the acceleration is effective.

6. why the acceleration of H.264 not obvious?
Acceleration has something to do with hardware environment, resolution and bitrate you set. Meanwhile, the CPU has the ability of acceleration. So please choose to turn on Acceleration or not according to specific conditions.

7. How to change the amount of process at the same time?
Click Tools > Preferences > Convert > Process to set and save.

8. The more processes at the same time, the higher conversion efficiency?
It depends on the hardware environment. If the device has low performance, you are recommended to reduce process amount to improve the conversion efficiency.

9. Why the multi-process settings invalid when converting DVD?
DVD needs to visit drive. If they visit drive at the same time, the conversion efficiency will be reduced and the drive will be damaged to some extent. So it's single conversion process by default.

7. Incomplete conversion?
Please preview with local player to see whether the frames are complete. Reasons for incomplete conversion may be as follows:
1) The information in source file header is not the same as practical information, causing the time length shown differs from practical playing length.
2) If it's DVD, maybe the disc got scratched so that the damaged part can't be read. Or maybe the drive has been used for a long time. Low reading ability caused incomplete conversion. If so, please try with Clip function to get the parts before and after the damaged part, and then click Merge into one file.
