When you load a clip into the Output Clip menu and select an emulator, the clip becomes a virtual source tape, the material that can be output to an external application or device with capture capabilities. The output process is controlled by the external application or device.
To use VTR emulation to output clips:
- Open the clip library that contains the clip that you want to output.
- Select the clip.
- Click Output Clip.
The clip is loaded into the Output Clip menu.
- Enable Emulator.
When Emulator is enabled, some VTR controls and Engineering options are deactivated.
- From the Device Name box, select the emulator you want to use.

- To begin a clip output session using VTR emulation (thereby allowing the external application or device to control Flame as a VTR), click Playback.
Flame emulates a VTR, and the clip that you loaded into the Output Clip menu becomes a virtual tape. You can now switch to the external application or device to control and capture the clip.
- If you want to enable a VTR emulator with a different video timing, from the Device Name box, select the VTR emulator that you want to use. Alternatively, open the Engineering menu to change the timing.
A message appears advising you to connect a valid signal to the reference input to launch the video preview corresponding to the format selected. Make sure your device is using the corresponding timing.
