The Video Delay Input allows you to select a custom delay to the Output or a Capture Input.
This feature can be used to achieve many types of effects including slow motion replay.

Resolution: Select the quality of the Video Delay. If you select a video camera to delay, this option will be the same as the camera resolution.
Save Codec: Select the Video Codec to use when saving clips from the Video Delay to file.

NOTE: DV Video Encoder supports a maximum resolution of 720x576, choose a different codec if you wish to save video clips in HD
