Video Editor

The video editor allows you to take your captured films, edit them, and then save them to different file formats.

The process starts with the source film (it is on the left). Select the start frame you want to be the beginning of the video with the "Start Position" slide bar, or the -10, -1, +1, +10 buttons. The -1, -10 buttons move the position 10 and 1 frame backwards, and the +1, +10 buttons move the position 1 and 10 frames forward. Select the end of the video with the "Stop Position" slider or the -10, -1, +1, +10 buttons. Then push the "Append Selected Film" button to copy the portion of the video you have selected into the destination film.

Use the similar controls in the destination film area to remove selected portions of film.

If you want, you can select another region of the source film and append it to the end of the source film. You can also load another film and append that film onto the end of the destination film. Note: the shareware version stamps "Demo" accross all non-GCF exports. To remove the "Demo", you must buy the full version at http://www.growlersoftware.com.

Import GCF file Button
This allows one to import a previously saved GCF film. One can then change between selected films in the drop down menu (currently film "May03 00h 51m.gcf" is selected)

Import Autosaved File Button
This is similar to "Import GCF file", but it allows one to quickly import an auto-saved GCF film from the auto-save directory.

This will slow down the playback rate of the exported film. "Double" is double speed. "Full" is full speed, "1/2" is half speed, "1/3" is third speed, and "1/4 is quarter speed.

Add effects
Click this button to go to the "

Export as GCF
This will save this destination film in the native Gun Cam format. This is useful for saving the destination film before adding effects to it. You can than reload it and start again if the effects didn't turn out as you wanted them to. GCF compression can be chosen in the
Export Setup window

Export to JPEG
This will export the frames in the destination film as JPEGs into a folder the program creates. It will then open up an html page showing the frames. The JPEG quality can be chosen in the
Export Setup window

Export to AVI
This will export the frames to an avi file. The program supports two avi formats: MSVC and
DivX. MSVC is more likely to be supported by your computer without any additional downloads but DivX is a much better format. The avi formats can be selected in the Export Setup window.

Export to GIF
This will export your films as animated GIFs. You can choose the frame rate of the GIF and the GIF quality in the
Export Setup window.
