Tutorial 12: Importing an Image/AVI
Placing an Image on a Display
A variety of file types can be imported into the Venus 7000 computer. The list of importable file types
includes AVI, BMP, CMP, CUR, DIB, EPS, ICO, JPG, MAC, PCD, PCT, PCX, PDF, PNG, PSD, RAS,
TGA, TIF, WMF and WPG. Importing an image places it on a frame and then displays it on the sign.
This tutorial explains how to:
1. Edit the import controls.
2. Import an image/AVI.
Upon completion of this tutorial, the sequence will look similar to the example below:
1. Open the Sequence Designer.
2. Click File > New. Click the plus sign next to 96x224 or the desired sign. Double-click the Default
folder. Type “Import” in the File Name text box. Click OK.
3. Click the Import Image button or click File > Import > Image/AVI … The Open window
appears. For this exercise, import an image from within a standard Venus Windows folder. The
same process is used to import an AVI. Click the down arrow next to the Look In drop-down
menu; click the V7000 folder on the D: drive. Double-click the Bitmaps folder; double-click the
Fish image. The Import Control window opens, along with two other boxes. The original image is
on the left and the captured image is on the right.
