Using the VirtualDub 1.7 open source tool in microscopy to view and record videos with Microsoft™ Windows Vista

3D Desktop with Windows Flip 3D function

VirtualDub is a free program for capturing and editing videos. Using “Direct Show” drivers, videos can be recorded from any source directly onto the hard drive. Once recorded, VirtualDub can be used to edit the video sequence as desired. The program offers numerous functions and is simple to use.

The following short instructions describe how to record a film sequence from a video source onto the hard drive.

Instructions for recording a video sequence with the DivX 6.4 codec

Use the “Device” menu to specify which video source is to be used. In this case, the high-resolution Lmscope USB C-mount camera is selected.

Choose “Capture AVI” to activate the recording mode in VirtualDub.

In the menu, choose “Video -> Capture Pin” to set the camera properties, such as frame rate, display size, etc.

In the menu, choose “Video -> Capture Filter” to set camera image properties, such as brightness, contrast, etc.

In the menu, select “Video -> Preview” to activate the settings, otherwise no live image is displayed.

The preview image is then displayed.

In the “File” menu, choose “Set capture file” to change the name of the video.

In the “Video” menu, choose “Compression” to select the video codec.

When selecting the DivX codec, more detailed codec properties can be set under “Configure”.

Choose “Capture video” to start the video recording.

“Stop capture” ends the recording.

To check whether everything has worked properly, view the video sequence with a video player, such as DivX Player, Zoom Player or Windows Media Player.
