Can anyone explain what flattening a movie does and why the Roxio Video Capture software applies it to some movies but not others?
Sometimes, when I click "Finish" (using Save Only) after capturing a old VHS tape, I see a window stating that the movie is being flattened. When this happens, a progress bar appears for a relatively short period of time. Then a message that the movie has been saved appears.
Other times, when I click "Finish" (using Save Only) the message that the movie has been saved appear immediately.
I have tried searching for the meaning of flattening a movie but still don't have a clear understanding of this function.
I have viewed the movies using QuickTime and can't see any difference between movies that were flattened and those that were not flattened.
After burning DVDs of the movies, I still can't tell what the effect of flattening a movie is.
