Gapsoft Corporation

Vanilla BABY is the application developed by VanillaON which is a company operated by Gapsoft Corporation. This easy-to-use piece of software will help you to create home-made video compilations from multiple sources within a few simple steps. The whole tool develops in a main window divided into several sections, each one for a particular purpose. In the bottom half of the window you will find a preview screen and playback controls for each one of the two channels you can use to compose your compilation. In the middle of them you’ll find some tools to manage transition effects, background music, and playback speed. On the right of the window you’ll find some tools to insert, position, and edit objects like image and text on the video compilation.
On the top half of the window is where you can watch the output preview, see a real-time encoding status report, and manage your files and devices used by Vanilla BABY.
Regarding system requirements, you should be aware that everything related to video processing is pretty demanding for your PC. Vanilla BABY is not the exception but you won´t need a super computer to be able to run it; performance will very depending on your PC’s specifications. The required system requirements for Vanilla BABY are a Windows 2000 or Windows XP operating system, a Pentium IV 1.8GHz processor or higher, with 256MB of RAM, 100MB available hard drive space, DirectX: 8.1 or greater and a 32MB video memory VGA card or higher.
You can get your video clips to create video compositions from camcorders, VCRs (if you still have one of those), VCD and DVD players, files you have in your local hard drive or files you can get over the network.
The encoding process, the step in which Vanilla BABY actually creates a new file for your output, allow you to choose whether to encode your file in Real Media or Windows Media according your preferences and requirements.
