The original video is composed of an individual file and a folder which both have the same name. The file will end in .RDI and is recognized by the Motion Amplification® software as a known file type. Clicking it will launch the Motion Amplification® software and load the video.
In order to send the raw video, you must send ALL files with the same file name. One way to do this is to create a "Compressed" or "ZIP" file with all the contents in one folder.
- Navigate to the location of your RDI Recordings. The default location will be "C:\Users\User\Documents\RDI\Recordings" where "User" will be replaced by the name of the User who is logged into the computer
- Select both the file folder and .RDI file with the same name by using the CTRL and Left Click command
- Right click on either one of the two highlighted files and select "Send to>" "Compressed (Zipped) folder"
- When the process is finished, a new folder will be created. This folder will have the same name as the original files and will end with a .ZIP extension.
- You can now transfer this new folder to someone else using a USB Memory Device, email, a file sharing program or other method.
Also, see the attached video for an example of how to do this.
NOTE - Motion Amplification® videos can get rather large. Be conscious of the file size limits associated with emailing large files. Sometimes, alternate methods of transferring files may be necessary.
