Press the "Set mark In position" button. The appropriate timecode will be shown in the "IN" field.
Then go to the desired end of the video fragment by pressing the "Play" button again and stopping at the desired position or by entering the desired timecode in the "OUT" field.
Press the "Set mark Out position" button. The appropriate timecode will be shown.
The duration is calculated automatically.

Several sources can be glued together during the transcoding task and can be added by clicking the gray filed and adding a source file in the same manner.
Set the targets defining the task output by clicking the gray field within the target panel:
The "Add transcoding target" dialog appears:
Here choose the corresponding profile from the list; its settings will be open on the right-hand panel of the dialog allowing you to make chenges in the selected profile, if needed. Then press the "OK" button.
Several output targets can be added to the transcoding task defining different output formats like MXF, MP4, SMPTE TT, etc. To do this, invoke the "Target edit form" dialog again and choose another profile.
If the profile is not compatible with the source media, it will be highlighted in red:
To edit a target from the list, use the button on the right of the target name.
To delete a target, use the button.
|In case of errors detection, e.g. blank mandatory fields, a red indicator appears specifying their number. Hovering the mouse pointer over the indicator displays a tooltip describing the problem(s). Please mind that the "OK" button will remain locked unless there are no errors.|
