Video object

In AquaSoft Vision and Stages you can insert videos and edit them.
To insert a video, select the Video object, which you can find in the Toolbox under the Objects tab. Drag the Video object from the Toolbox to the Timeline.
You will now be prompted to select one or more video files.

Inserting videos into the Timeline can also be done by simply dragging and dropping them from the File browser.

After selecting your video, it is visible in the Timeline. Depending on the zoom you have set in the Timeline, you will see a number of frames from the video. If you move the mouse pointer over the video, you can view the respective single frame.

Under Extras / Program Settings / Timeline / Video Thumbnails you can find more settings about the number of thumbnails for videos.
