MREC Conversion

  Previous  Next




You can use the Recording functionality to create MADRIX 5 Record files [of the file type *.mrec] as described in the previous chapter »Recording
One of the uses is that *.mrec files can be played just like a video using SCE Video.

In order to make use of the advantages of the *.mrec file format, you can convert video files into MREC files.




Some of the advantages are:

Always full compatibility with the MADRIX 5 Software without the need for a separate video codec.

Full compatibility with all playback modes Once, Loop, and Bounce

Full compatibility with Step 1 Frame Back and Skip 1 Frame

Full compatibility with single-frame scrubbing [frame by frame].
