Quick screencasts

These small screencasts quickly highlight some features of Advene.

Annotate with SVG graphics and overlay them over the video (2:12).

How to annotate a video with SVG graphics, and display them over the video while playing it.

Use multiple video players (1:00).

You can have more than 1 video player in Advene. The primary video remains the time reference, but additional players can be used, to display for instance a different video stream of the same event, or to visualize parts of the same movie where the exact same footage is reused (hint: look for a car in Mulholland Drive).

Quickly validate a shot segmentation (1:27).

Learn to use the dedicated view to validate a shot segmentation (or any segmentation where annotations are supposed to be adjacent).
