With the right plug-ins, you can output your video in various encoded formats–ready to be distributed on CD, DVD, or over the Internet.
This book is your step-by-step guide to getting the most out of VirtualDub. As the title suggests, this eBook will cover how to capture video, process it with VirtualDub’s editing and filtering features, and finally how to encode video in an appropriate format for distribution. Whether you’ve been using it for a while, or are just downloading it for the first time, you’ll find plenty in this book to develop your VirtualDub skills, leaving you with higher quality, more effective videos.
