Video

Files can be combined if their video size, frame rate, aspect ratio, and format of interlace and field order are identical.

Audio

Files can be combined if their audio formats, audio sampling rate and number of audio channels are identical.

Limitations
- Does not support MPEG-1 format files.
- Does not support VOB format files.
- Cannot load files of less than 0.5 seconds or more than 12 hours.
- Cannot load files with the timetable reset in midstream.
- Maximum length of files created is 12 hours and mimum length is 0.5 seconds. Note that for DV stream amd QuickTime movie, maximum length of files is 2 hours.
- Handles PCM, MPEG-1 Audio Layer-2, and Dolby Digital Audio formats.
- Handles 48kHz of audio sampling rate for PCM and MPEG-1 Audio Layer-2 formats. Converts audio sampling rate of files other than 48kHz to 48kHz.
- Handles only 48kHz of audio sampling rate for 5.1-channel Dolby Digital format.
- MPEG-2 with audio sample size other than 16-bit is not supported.
- Handles video bitrate of 2Mbps to 9.8Mbps. Note that when audio format is PCM, maximum bitrate is 8Mbps.
- If video bitrate exceeds 8Mbps, you cannot select PCM as audio format.
- Does not support files with multiple audio streams.
- Handles up to 18 frames in a GOP for NTSC and 15 frames in a GOP for PAL.
- Handles system bitrate up to 10.08Mbps. Even if system bitrate is lower than 10.08Mbps, video bitrate higher than 9.8Mbps cannot be handled.
- Files can be combined in File Combination Mode if they are MPEG-2 format files and their video size, frame rate, aspect ratio, format of interlace and field order, audio format, audio sampling rate, and the number of audio channels are identical.
- Handles MPEG-2 format files as follows:
 [NTSC] : 704 x 480, 720 x 480, 352 x 480, 352 x 240
 [PAL] : 704 x 576, 720 x 576, 352 x 576, 352 x 288
- System bitrate is the total bitrate size comprising audio bitrate of MPEG-2 format files and video. Video bitrate varies according to audio bitrate.
  (e.g.) When the system bitrate of MPEG-2 format file is 8Mbps, the result is as follows:
  When the audio bitrate is 224kbps, video bitrate will be approximately 7.2Mbps.
  When the audio bitrate is 384kbps, video bitrate will be approximately 6.9Mbps.
- When previewing a file with 5.1-channnel Dolby Digital format, the number of audio channnels will be 2-channel.
- In the Trimming Mode, when saving a trimming range from a movie file with 5.1-channel Dolby Digital audio format, video may be misaligned with the trimming range that you set.
- When saving a movie file with 5.1-channnel Dolby Digital format as DV stream or QuickTimeMovie, the number of audio channels will be saved in 2-channel.
