Using Aware

Aware is a video player specifically designed for the Motion Pixels codec. There are two versions of Aware, 16-bit and 32-bit. The 16-bit version of Aware runs under Windows 3.1 and Windows for Workgroups 3.11. The 32-bit version is designed for the Windows 95 and Windows NT operating system. All the functions described are applicable to the MovieCD Remote Control.

Launching Aware in Windows 3.1 or Windows for Workgroups 3.11

In the Windows Program Manager, select 'File', then 'Run'; or click on the Aware icon in the

Motion Pixels Program Group.

In the Command Line dialog box, type 'C:MPIXELSAWARE16.EXE', then click 'OK!'.

If Motion Pixels was installed into a different directory, click on the 'Browse' button and select the

appropriate directory.

The Aware toolbar will pop up. See the 'Loading A Video Clip' section of this documentation

for further information.

Launching Aware in Windows 95

In the Windows 95 taskbar, click on the Start Menu, then select 'Run'; or click on the Aware icon in

the Motion Pixels Program Group.

In the Run dialog box, type 'C:MPIXELSAWARE32.EXE'. If Motion Pixels has been installed

into a different directory, type in the appropriate path and filename.

The Aware toolbar will pop up. See the 'Loading A Video Clip' section of this documentation for

further information.

Loading A Video Clip

To load a video clip into the Aware program, select 'File' in the toolbar, then 'Open Video'.

In the Open dialog box, select the desired video clip from the CD or use 'Look In' function to

browse the directories. Click on a file with the .AVI file extension.

The first frame of the video clip will load into the window. The filename of the video clip is

displayed in the titlebar at the top of the window. To play the video in the original-sized window,

click on the play arrow in the lower left-hand corner or press CTRL+P on the keyboard. Use the

slider bar to advance through the video frames. To play in the video in a window using the

MovieCD program, click on the Play button on the Remote Control.

The video segment can be played directly in a window or in full screen mode. There are several

playback options available, accessible through the Playback Style dialog box. To open this dialog

box, select 'File' in the toolbar, then Playback Style or press CTRL+L on the keyboard. In the

MovieCD program, click on the Playback Style button on the Remote Control.

The MVI Configuration dialog box contains 13 different options for playing the video in a window

or full screen.

Below is a detailed explanation of the Motion Pixels resizing techniques. Each resizing technique can be

applied to either the full screen or windowed enlargement styles.

The default Minimum Fullscreen Resolution is 640x480 pixels. The default Windowed Enlargement Style

is dependent on system factors such as processor speed and operating system. The default Fullscreen Enlargement Style is 4x Pattern Enlargement in 256 color mode.

The Windowed Enlargement Styles that are grayed out become available when the desktop color palette is

set to 256 colors.

Any of the Windowed or Fullscreen Enlargement Styles may be used, although some video adapters may

not support all playback modes.

Motion Pixels (MVI) Playback Style Configuration - Resizing Options

32k/64k (Hicolor) Methods

No Enlargement Video retains its original (captured) size.

Single Field Video retains its original size, but odd fields are removed for fastest playback.

Use this mode on slower computers to improve playback performance.

Wide Field Lines Video plays back at twice the horizontal resolution. This mode is

similar to single-field, but doubles the vertical pixels.

4x Pixel Enlargement  Video plays back four times its original size in 32,768 colors (regardless of

video adapter).

4x Horizontal Lines  Video plays back four times its original size in 32,768 colors (regardless of

video adapter), providing horizontal color enhancement.

4x Pattern Enlargement  Video plays back four times its original size in 32,768 colors (regardless of

video adapter). Antialiasing smoothes an image which contains areas of high

contrast.

9x Pattern Enlargement  Video plays back nine times its original size.

256 Color (Palletized) Methods

4x Pattern Enlargement  Video plays back in 256 colors at 4 times its original size with improved

playback performance compared to 4x Hicolor mode. Antialiasing smoothes

an image which contains areas of high contrast.

9x Pattern Enlargement  Video plays back in 256 colors at 9 times its original size. Works well for

160x120 video clips.

256 Color (Grayscale) Methods

No Enlargement Video plays back at original size in black and white.

4x Pixel Enlargement  Video plays back at 4 times original size in black and white.

4x Pattern Enlargement  Video plays back at 4 times original size in black and white. Antialiasing

smoothes an image which contains areas of high contrast.

9x Pattern Enlargement  Video plays back at 9 times original size in black and white.

Use Hardware Scaling (if available)

Hardware Scaling Hardware scaling enables the video window to be resized to any dimensions.

If a video adapter (i.e. Weitek) has video acceleration capabilities, the video

in a window will play much faster. Checking this option disables all other

video resizing techniques in a window.

Advance Configuration

The Advanced Options section allows the user to fine-tune the Motion Pixels performance:

The Optimize For No Cache check box should be selected for computers that have 128Kb of level



two (L2) cache or less.

Motion Pixels uses the standard Windows AVI video file format. Selecting the Disable Auto-

Resizing allows the video to be resized or 'stretched' in another application such as Media Player.

Save Video State ensures the Windows desktop is not corrupted after playing the video full screen

at the expense of a small amount of video memory.

Maximum Video Quality smoothes out blocky areas of video that contains massive amounts of

blue. This function is extremely CPU-intensive. A Pentium 100Mhz or higher is recommended.

Disable Linear Video re-enables bank-switching for video adapters that may use VESA 2.0

drivers. Use this function if your full screen video does not function correctly.

If the video adapter chipset is not known, pressing the Detect Video Chipset button will perform a

diagnostic routine to determine the chipset type. the 'Automatically Detect' option is selected by

default. Under normal circumstances, it will not be necessary to change this setting.

The Gamma and Brightness Sliders can be adjusted the overall brightness and color saturation of the video. See the Effect section for more information.

The Reset Gamma & Brightness button returns these settings to their default values.

Click on 'Ok!' when selections are complete to close this dialog box.

Player Options

Motion Pixels offers several other options for video playback. In the 'File' menu in the Aware

toolbar, select 'Player Options', click the 'Options' button on the Remote Control or press

CTRL+T on the keyboard to access the Playback Options. Click on 'OK' when completed.

The Rewind/Fast Forward speed can be adjusted from 2.5 times original speed up to 'Fast As Possible

Without Skipping Frames'.

The audio can be muted during rewind, fast-forward, or slow-motion functions.

Replay Video restarts from the beginning after the video has played through to the end. Looping is enabled by default.

Always On Top keeps the video window on top of other open applications, such as a spreadsheet or

word processing program.

Boost Priority allocates most of the system resources to video playback with other applications open.
