The sections contain info
rmation on various subjects. From Capture to the final DVD.

Although the site was created during the reign of VS 8, the working practices used in the later
versions has remained practically the same.
Any processes relating to a specific version being highlighted where possible.
Continuing updates to the site will bring the information in line with Video Studio 10.

Standard Project Properties and Video Properties are shown,
They are the ones I use and as far as I am aware are correct---they work for me---

Video Studio uses a file called a 'Video Studio Project' . (VSP)

When you open the Video Studio Editor you are looking at a project.
The project ( the VSP) contains all the edited information for your movie.

Once all the editing has been completed I render the project to a single video file.
This file should use the industries compliant settings suitable for creating a DVD.
No problems, Video Studio provides several standard templates.

The menu to the left shows several links, the first few describe the working procedure that I use.

Customizing Video Studio----Allows you to change some user defined settings.
