Once you’ve purchased and downloaded Serato Video, you can access the interface by simply clicking the video reel button located in at the top left of your Serato DJ window. A dropdown window will appear under your digital platters that you’ll use to import videos and manipulate them. The Serato Video window contains three views, an A-channel output, a B-channel output, and a main output view. These outputs will show you what both channels are playing simultaneously as well as show you what your audience will be seeing.
To import a video, locate your desired video in your library and drag it into the channel you wish. Once imported, your video will automatically be synched to any song that you’ve previously imported into the corresponding audio channel. You can experiment with this by performing some simple scratches. As you scratch your song, the synched video will speed up, reverse, or slow down depending on the direction of your scratch. If you’ve imported audio and video to both A and B channels, you can use your crossfader to switch between songs as well as your video. You can set a custom transition effect that will activate as you slide the crossfader from one side to another. This will make it so that your audience will see a more interesting transition of videos rather than a hard cut.
