Customizable Parameters

Parameter or
element
Type Range/options Description
RotationDegree int 0 – 360 The number of degrees to rotate the output video.
CameraZoom float 0.0 – 1.0 The relative "distance" of the viewport from the original video image. The smaller this value is, the higher the zoom magnification.
Point float 0.0 – 1.0 The point within the duration of the effect at which the enclosing element will have the specified value. When the time attribute is equal to 0.0, it indicates the starting point of the clip; when the time attribute is equal to 1.0, it indicates the end point of the clip.

For more information on the Point element, see Changes to the XML Schema.
