eVGA e-GeForce4 Ti 4600 Review
By: Jonathan Martini - June 11, 2002

VIVO Features Continued

While I normally don't use VIVO features, I decided to give it a go this time around. This forum thread mentions a couple of handy utilities for viewing and/or recording video - VirtualDub and TV Viewer. Here's a shot of my desktop with TV Viewer running. Unfortunately Hypersnap couldn't capture the window properly, so this digital camera shot will have to do.

eVGA has included software to make use of VIVO capabilities by bundling Cyberlink's Power Director Pro 2.0. While it may not be the most intuitive video editing program for a newbie like myself, I eventually managed to become productive with it.

Both the TV Viewer and Power Director Pro 2.0 default to composite. Those using s-video, like I did, will have to locate the option to select the desired input method. I was able to construct a brief video clip (4.2MB) that illustrates a few simple effects like titles and scene transitions. The file is graciously hosted by the folks at our sister site, Envy News. The DivX based movie is composed of three scenes that were cut and spliced together as an example of what a total VIVO newbie can produce in an hour of trial and error ;)

I'm not sure if I'll continue using the VIVO features after its novelty wears off. But so far, it's been very cool keeping tabs on what's happening during the NHL playoffs while I'm busy playing, err..., working on the computer. While VIVO may be a selling point, I'm glad to see that there's no additional cost added to the card for including this feature.
