Use the Timeline?

The Timeline is the control centre of Timewarp 4.  It is here that you navigate through the extremely long video captures.  You can loop a segment of video,  let it play, pause it or step it frame by frame.

loop area

The Looping Box is bounded by a green box for live-Warped video and a blue box for a previously captured Project video.

 

You can change the size of the looping box by dragging its ends.

 

The thick vertical green line between the ends is the point on the timeline you clicked on (or tagged).  The lead-in and Lead-out times are taken from this point in time.
