      First things, first: requirements.

         1. Windows Operating System
         2. .NET Framework 4.0 → the FULL install is needed, if only the .NET
            Framework 4 Client Profile is installed, some of the features will NOT
            work. This is how a full install should look like in Control Panel:

           Notice the Client Profile, Extended and Multi-Targeting Pack components.
           The installer for this .NET Framework can be downloaded from here:

         3. AviSynth – needed for the transition effects. The setup wizard for VMB
            PRO enables the installation of AviSynth too.
         4. Windows Media Player and the latest Windows Media Player Codec Pack
            → please check first if Windows Media Player is installed and configured.
            The latest Codec Pack can be found here:

      Regarding the Graphical User Interface, the user experience may
vary depending on the Windows version used, the visual effects from
the performance settings, the video resolution and even the Custom
size text (DPI) settings.
      I have tested the app mostly on Win 7 with the Aero theme
enabled and the visual effects set at "Let Windows Choose what's best
for my computer", video resolutions: 1280x768, 1280x800 - and so
these are the settings I recommend using.
1. Youtube → is best to fill out all the info: Username & password, Video
   title, Video description, category and tags.

   Notes: please make sure you include the whole email address suffix as the
   username; tags must be comma separated; make sure you create a Youtube
   channel first, before using the Youtube upload feature.

2. Video settings → individual help links can be noticed for each of the video
   options. Besides the information contained in those help links, the
   following should be noted: if the 'Resize frame for HD' option is enabled,
   the app will use the maximum quality and video resolution for the videos,
   regardless of the other settings.
   Adding transition effects will increase the rendering time (the rendering
   time being influenced by the number of slides too); when adding transition
   effects it may be a good idea to increase by a bit the slide transition time.

3. Audio settings → from here, the Text to Speech feature can be enabled for
   all the text slides created using the text editor. The default language is
   English, other languages (&accents) can be enabled from the text editor:
          4. Watermarking → watermarking a video is quite simple and straight
             forward: browse for the watermark image (preferably, a transparent PNG
             image with a big size – tests with 660x220 images were made) and select
             one of the five positions available: top left corner, top right corner, bottom
             left corner, bottom right corner and full overlay. There is also an option to
             automatically add to new videos the selected watermark image.

          5. Search → there is a default filter that shows only image results under the
             Creative Commons license. However, this setting can be changed.

                                The vertical toolstrip

The vertical toolstrip is basically the lifeblood of the application. It contains all the
important features and core functionality. Features:

          1. The add image button

               Functionality: it adds images from the left listview (search results images)
to the right listview (video slides).

          2. The add local image button

            Functionality: it can add a specific image from the local disk or it can add a
whole batch of images from a specific folder.
            3. The join video button

             Functionality: it facilitates the merging of videos created with VMB PRO
and not only; Note: for best results is important that the videos have similar
characteristics (like the frames per second, video bitrate, aspect ratio etc).

            4. The delete the selected image button

              Functionality: deletes the selected image from the right listview.

            5. The move up button

              Functionality: moves up with one position the selected image from the right

            6. The move down button

              Functionality: moves down with one position the selected image from the
right listview.
         7. The text editor button

               Functionality: it enables the WYSIWYG text editor. The text editor has two
options: one option to create custom text slides and an option to create text slides with
scraped text from various article directories. From the text editor you can add images to
your text slides and you can also insert the text slides as slides in the right listview, so
let's call this feature 'picture-in-picture'.

         8. The erase all images button

             Functionality: it deletes all the images from the left and right listviews.

         9. The add music button

             Functionality: it adds music to the videos. If the Royality Free Music addon
(RFM) is not installed yet it will give the user the option to download it. The RFM
addon has a preview feature so you can listen to the music track before inserting it in the
video. Note: if the length of the music track is bigger then the video's then the output
video will have the length of the music track; adding music will overwrite the Text to
Speech audio if it's enabled.

         10.The spin images button

           Functionality: it shuffles the images (slides) from the right listview in a
random way. This feature can be used to generate unique, similar videos.
         11. The preview video button

            Functionality: it enables the user to check the current state of the video
before upload.

         12. The upload to Youtube button

            Functionality: it uploads the video to the user's Youtube channel. All the
Youtube informations must be filled out before using this feature.

         13. The save video button

             Functionality: it saves the video to the user's chosen location. Note: is
important to use the Preview video feature first or the Upload to Youtube feature;
executing these features the video is basically created, if the features are not used then
there will be no video to save.
                            The Tools

1. The Mass Keywords Rank Checker → MKRC checks if there are
   Youtube video already ranking on the first page of Google for a batch of
   keywords. It can accept input from files or from reports saved (as CSV)
   from the Google's Keywords Tool. The help links available in the Mass
   Keywords Rank Checker panel will edify about the exact format that is
   needed to be used for these files.

2. The Google Trends Scraper → it scrapes the latest search trends on
   Google and it can export the selected keyword to the main window for
   image searching and rank checking and it can also export ALL the trend
   keywords to the Mass Keywords Rank Checker (MKRC).
3. The Alexa Trends Scraper → it scrapes the latest Alexa trends (Hot Topics
   and Hot Products) and it can also scrape keywords after a specific date. As
   the Google Trends Scraper, it can also export data to the MKRC or in the
   main window for image searching.

4. The Yahoo! Buzz Log Scraper → it scrapes the hottest Yahoo searches
   from 7 categories: Overall, Actors, Movies, Music, Sports, TV, Video

   Abbreviations: D stands for delete → deletes the selected keyword. ES
   stands for Export Selected → exports the keywords for image searching.
   EA stands for Export All → exports all the keywords for image searching.
   MKRC (Mass Keyword Rank Checker) → checks if there are videos
   already ranking for the trends.

   To execute any of the actions above (D, ES, EA, MKRC) for a specific
   category, the corresponding category checkbox must by checked.
