In this guide we are going to explain,
how you can export your video from Ulead MediaStudio Pro v6.x/v7.0
to Windows Media Encoder v9 (WM 9) with our Video Server Plugin. As an example, we
take the sample file "Nature.dvp" of MSpro and
code this project as an AVI within WM 9. After reading
this guide, you should be familiar with my plugin and can
start encoding your own video.
As the source quality of the "Nature.dvp"
is not optimal, the quality of the output is also not optimal.
First open the Nature project within MediaStudio Pro (MSPro).
Select File->Create->Video File
This will bring up the Create Video File Movie window. Click
on the "Save as type" droplist and select Ulead Video Server.
Normally, the settings of the plugin are O.K. by default.
But as the current version of WM 9 (release candidate 1) has a bug with uncompressed
audio, you need to make sure that you do not use RAW audio. This is the default setting, but if you ever changed them, I recommend that you compare your
plugin settings with the correct ones. This can be done by clicking on the
Options button and compare your current settings with
Now, all the settings are correct and you need to fill in a name
into the "File name" box and press save. When you click on the save button,
the plugin starts and creates the IPCserver.AVI. Please note that the filename that
you enter in the File name box is not the file that is written to disc.
In this example we use the name:"justaname". The name
is only important if you are running 2 servers at the same time. If you are
using 2 servers, the names may not be identical.
If the plugin in not registered, first a window
is shown to motivate registration. If O.K. is pressed, a
server window will appear.
DO NOT CLOSE THIS WINDOW
The plugin is now serving and
the file IPCserver.AVI is written to disc. Start
Windows Media Encoder v9.
(So open Windows Media Encoder v9 without closing the server window and MSPro).
Normally the new session window
pops up. If not, please push the New session button. If the
new session window is open, select convert file and press the
Open the IPCserver.AVI file and press
the next button.
Now the Windows Media Encoder v9 is coding. Please
wait 'till the encoder is finished. If you want to abort
the encoding, please do this before you close
the video server window.
