Video Decoders - video decoders for HDV, AVCHD, MOV, MP4 and MPEG-2 PS files
Audio Decoders - audio decoders for HDV, AVCHD, MOV, MP4 and MPEG-2 PS files
Rendering - gives you a choice of video renderers that are used to display video frames
Scenes - choose the triggers which define a "scene" (DV file types only)
Burn-In - settings for the Burn-in Metadata and Burn-in Timestamp tools
Positioning - set positions for burned-in text
Appearance - set the font and size for burned-in text; also the language and format for the recording date and time
Output - set the output file type for the Burn-in Metadata and Burn-in Timestamp tools
Capture - settings for the Capture DV window
Splitter - settings for the DV AVI file splitter
Modify Metadata - settings used for modifying DV metadata
Export Metadata - settings used when exporting metadata to a CSV file
Export Subtitles - settings used when exporting metadata to a SRT subtitle file

These sections are described below.

 

When you click the OK button at the bottom of the Options dialog box, changes that you made to any of the settings are saved for future use. However, the settings in the Modify Metadata section are not saved as you will probably want to set these to different values for each modify operation. By default all of the Modify Metadata check boxes are un-checked.
