|Transparent shot bitmap
AVS lets you choose a transparent bitmap that will be used to decorate the shots, both in AVS user interface itself, and in the published thumbnails.
When you start AVS a default transparent bitmap is loaded. You can change it with a File menu option :
Menu option for the transparent shot bitmap
AVS will prompt if the image you choose doesn't meet the following requirements :
- the image must be in bitmap format (.bmp).
- the image must be 100 pixels wide, and 80 pixels tall.
- the image must have a transparent color (by default it is violet). This color will be used to map the actual video content. The bitmap preview dialog lets you view and choose a bitmap file. Please note there is a
Color button at the bottom-right of the dialog box. When clicking it, you change the transparent color accordingly. Default transparent color is violet (Red=255, Green=0, Blue=255).
