What is this view ?This view guides you through annotation structure creation and view design in four steps that serve as a tutorial for the use of Advene.

It's your turn...

This page is intented to help you apply the principles you just learnt about Advene by completing the current hypervideo. For this, you will annotate the movie and construct some views, along the steps we propose to you.

Adding some annotations

As you may have noticed, there are several mirrors that appear in the Nosferatu movie. So as to study their role and their importance, a first step would be to annotate their appearances. For this, first create a "Mirror" annotation type in the "Elements" package, and then use this type to annotate the movie.

Step 1 : annotations will explain you how to set up these annotations.

Adding some relations

Annotations of type "Actor" are included in the "Elements" Schema. An "Actor" annotation presents the name of an actor, and the name of the character he plays. An interesting thing tto do would be to put "Actor" and "Shot" annotations so as to indicate into which shots actors appears. For this, it is necessary to create a new annotation type, and to put annotation into relations.

Step 2 : relations will guide you on completing the relations between the actors and their appareances in the movie as characters.

Creating static view

So as to take advantage of the newly added annotations and relations, the objective will be now to create one static view that summarizes all shots in which each actor appears.

Step 3 : Static views will guide you through this process.

Creating a dynamic view

Your objective will now be to design a dynamic view that automatically jumps from one appearance of Max Schreck to another. You'll have to define a rule which will change the position of the player when the end of an annotation of type "Shot" linked to the "Actor" annotation corresponding to Max Schreck is reached.

Step 4 : Dynamic view will help you build this dynamic view.

And now...?

You can now try Advene for yourself, defining schemas and view so as to share your analysis of audiovisual material.

Thank you for using Advene and this hypervideo. We are interested by your comments at
