Currently working on: misc improvements and bug hunt

Download the latest version of VIDIFOLD  and extract the executable. System requirements, latest release notes, etc... can be found in the knowledge base, and be sure to revisit for the latest version as updates are released regularly. There is NO telemetry in this app, you don't need an internet connection to use it.

You will need to mark the file to run as an executable, 'right' click on the VIDIFOLD file and select 'Properties', click on the 'Permissions' tab, 'tick' Allow executing file as program, and close the dialog. You should now be able to double click on VIDIFOLD to start it.

The interface has 4 main sections (working from top to bottom).

  1. Screens and Buses previews
  2. The Bus Racks
  3. Slot details and their FXStack
  4. Library, management, tools and Aux Rack

Import a video clip

  • Click on the 'Clips' tab in the management section

  • Click on 'Select File', this will bring up the importing window
  • Click the 'Import listed items' button, and watch the import status, press the 'Finished' button when it appears

There will now be a thumbnail from the video in the management area.

Play the video
Drag and drop the thumbnail to the preview area in the Slot section. This is the blue area directly above the thumbnail.
A larger preview will appear in this area and a small preview will appear in the Trigger section.
Press the play button that appears or the '1' key on the keyboard to start play back.
