Export is used to create short (up to one hour) excerpts of recordings. CAMNET server performs all necessary conversions and sends the completed file to the client. The client stores the export in the user's Videos folder. The name given to the export includes the date of the recording and the starting and ending times of the excerpt, followed by the original recording's extension (.cns, .f##, .e##), and the camera name.

H.264 (which includes all transcoded streams) and MPEG-4/2 are written to an .mp4 file. The audio, if present and in a supported format and not already AAC-LC, is transcoded to that. Any active transcoding is carried forward to the export: if transcoding for size and rotation, the export is likewise sized and rotated. A/V sync is expected to be perfect.

M-JPEG is written to an .avi. The audio, if present and not already linear PCM, is decoded to that. A/V sync may drift for long excerpts. A single FPS is specified, and is the average over the excerpt. If this is not acceptable, transcode to H.264 (see the Cam setup, Playback panel for details) for the export.

Set the start and end times of the excerpt. To jump to a specific time, use the playtime clock and play that time. Once the hh and mm and ss have been set from the menu list of times, press Play. Press Export (you can pause before) to return to set the start (or end) time.

To not include audio in the excerpt, press the A/V button. Press it again for both.

Press Create export. Do not exit the client until the operation has completed. The longer the excerpt the longer the time needed. You can leave the Export panel to do anything else, even create another export, but do not exit the client app until the export completely arrives. Check the Videos folder for the new file.
