Setting Up Capture Session

Before you start your capture session, you have to set up the Engine templates to be used for recording. Start with specifying the General settings and define the Roll name and Media group, which are mandatory parameters. Depending on your database settings, define the values for the available metadata parameters:

Having completed the template creation, you can start your capture session. One capture session is normally recorded into a single Roll. Additionally, one capture session can be represented by several separate Rolls created during one recording process.

Once the capture session is started, it can be not only controlled using a common set of buttons, but edited as well. You can change the Out point and duration values on-the-fly during recording, if needed.
