Testing different filters and settings is an important step. It'll save you time, money, and a lot of hassle.

A 10-second clip of any videos you upload is transcoded and placed in a tab by itself (look for the 'Clip 1' tab)

Experiment with different filters and settings in the Clip 1 tab and create presets The processed clip is in sync with the original (un-processed) clip during video comparison

You get the best possible idea of what your processed master video will look like once it's fully processed using a preset tested on a clip

Make more clips if you want to test out several parts of your video.

Make a Clip

Open the video you want to experiment on, and click the "Make Clip" button, (the factory preset MOV/264 is set by default).

We recommend making a 10-second clip (or several if you want to test different environments in your footage, like outdoor versus indoor shots).

Click the process button, to confirm the appraisal, processing will start and your clip will be added as a new tab.

Test Clip

Go to the new Clip tab that is created, and click 'Process' to enter the process tool. Once in the process tool, simply choose your settings and then click the process button, to confirm the appraisal.

After the processed clip has been created, you can compare it with the original un-processed Clip to evaluate

Sharing a comparison

You can now share the processed result with the unprocessed clip by clicking the 'share comparison' button, which copies the URL to your clipboard.

Once you're satisfied, you can use those settings to process the full video.
