MJPEG IMAGE ORDER
A standard video picture is made up of odd and even lines across the screen. Television standards require these lines to be interlaced. This means only half of the lines are displayed in one field. The first (odd) set of lines is displayed in the first field while the second (even) set of lines is displayed in the second field. These two fields comprise a frame, which is a complete picture.
When capturing a video sequence utilizing the full speed provided with today's video standards, it is normally required to use special VCR equipment with field-by-field stepping capabilities. Industry standard hardware and APAS software modules make it possible to capture video sequences from a VCR or camcorder directly to the computer hard drive without special requirement of expensive VCR equipment. Any VCR can be used as a video source with the APAS.
The APAS system uses hardware and software that has Motion JPEG image hardware compression that also complies with the major hardware vendors. After capturing the video to the hard drive, the APAS system allows separation of each frame to its two component fields.
Depending on the hardware and software combinations used for recording and displaying the AVI files, it is possible for the order of the displayed fields to be reversed. It is also possible for the same AVI file to play in normal order on one computer and in reverse order on another computer! For this reason, the Ariel CAPTURE, TRIM and DIGITIZE programs provides the option to specify the order for displaying the images of the AVI files.
If it appears that the images are "jerky" or are being displayed in a "zigzag" manner, the field order probably needs to be reversed. The field order is specified using the following steps.
WINDOWS WIN.INI FILE
The Image Order information is stored in the WIN.INI file. Once this parameter is set in the Capture, Trim, or Digitize module, the Ariel software will remember the current setting. The following information is listed in the WIN.INI file of the APAS computer.
[APAS System Information]
When Reverse Fields is set to 0, the APAS software reads the video fields in normal order. When the Reverse Fields is set to 1, the video fields are displayed in reverse order.
