11. Click Save Version, and you are ready to start capturing, no more need to load effects and standard clips, plus all editing settings will be correct.

 

How to create END.avi and END.wav

 

(this is ideal for detecting unused clips by placing it last on the timeline when the edit is finished, then sorting the bin by result time, now you can delete all clips that are below the end clip in the bin)

 

Create the END.avi with END.wav by placing a 3 sec Inscriber on the timeline and typing END so that it is almost full screen, see this -

 

Then export the 3 sec selected area to Matrox Digisuite.avi and wav and name them END (the audio clip will be created automatically) -
