Amped Software has released a new version of Amped FIVE containing several popular user requests and important changes. See the new and exciting developments that will make your life easier when investigating images and videos.
Below, you can find out more about Variable Motion Deblurring, Freeze Frame and keyframe tracking within Annotate.
Variable Motion Deblurring
Most users will know how powerful Motion Deblurring is. The ability to correct a linear blur on an object that is moving past a camera enables you to bring the pixels back together again. It’s quick and easy on a single image but what happens when it’s on a video and the blur changes with every frame due to the position of the object you are attempting to restore? Well, it used to be a long process, now not anymore!
Variable Motion Deblurring allows you to add blur parameters on a frame-by-frame basis, making changes to size, angle, and thickness. By fine-tuning the blur on each frame we are able to stabilize and integrate the plate to restore and enhance the license plate digits.
Variable Motion Deblurring can now be found within the Deblurring filter category.
Freeze Frame is an amazingly simple filter to use, but highly effective within a presentation video or when creating image sequences for charts. This enables you to pause the video and focus on a specific frame for a set duration of time.
Showing that the video is paused, and how long the pause lasts is vital to ensure that a viewer understands what is happening, avoiding any issues with misinterpretation and is a great help within the courtroom. Visualizing the frozen area makes things also easy when navigating back through a video to apply annotations.
Freeze Frame can now be found within the Presentation filter category.
Annotate – Keyframing
In the previous Amped FIVE update, Amped Software has introduced Assisted Tracking within the Annotate filter and received a lot of positive feedback on this functionality. Now with this update Amped FIVE offers to analysts full keyframe tracking within Annotate.
For those people new to the term, keyframing is the process of animating a change in the properties of an object. Keyframing, like any tracking technique, does take a few goes to get comfortable, but with the keyboard shortcuts and the mouse, you will soon be able to learn the tool in no time.
With every update of Amped FIVE, Amped Software increases the format support to deliver more video, audio and timestamp decoding. The powerful Amped Conversion Engine now has many new codec and format variations, including the common N3R CCTV file format. Proprietary HEVC / H265 formats are also available.
