INSTRUMENTS / GENERATORS
DEMO ONLY: The Fruity Video Player comes as a demo version in FL Studio and needs to be purchased separately so you can view extended video clips.
Fruity Video Player allows you to open and play video files synchronized with your song. This is a very useful tool for those who are working on music soundtracks that need to be scored in time with video events.
Keep in mind that FL Studio is not a video rendering package so it will not export the video footage, the Fruity Video Player plugin can only be used to view videos and to rip audio from videos into FL. The audio is streamed into FL Studio like any other audio plugin, however to achieve best synchronization and quality for exported audio tracks, it is highly recommended to export the audio as wave file and use it like a regular audio track inside FL Studio. A related plugin is ZGameEditor Visualizer that can render video effects in sync with the music played from FL Studio and Fruity Video Player 2
Audio Rendering The audio handling in the video player is fairly slow compared to .wav files, etc, so to save frustration several audio options are provided:
The Video Player works with Windows native formats (.WMV, .AVI, .SWF, etc). If you have a video in a format not recognized by the Video Player it should be converted to one of these formats first. For example, the .MOV format may or may not work, depending on the CODEC used to create it. In the case of .MOV, the QuickTime movie viewer (available from the Apple website) can be unlocked for a small fee to convert between .MOV and the .AVI format that can be used with the Fruity Video Player.
