Keyframing

Giving users various tracking methods, from manual to assisted, allows full flexibility when moving objects around the video area to hide, spotlight, or mark a vehicle or person. With this update, we have introduced full keyframing, with size and location interpolation.

Adding a keyframe to an annotation, like a circle or an arrow, stores the parameters for that object at that frame. The parameters stored are the size and the location. A user can then add another keyframe at another frame and the object will automatically interpolate between this and the previous keyframe.

The benefit of this is that a user may only have to add 3-4 keyframes to track an object instead of frame by frame.

 

Annotate Text Size

The starting font size is now dynamic. So, on a full HD video the default text size will be bigger than on a standard definition video. If you do need to change the size, however, the addition of the Size dropdown within the main Text tool interface is a welcome addition to speed up the workflow.

 

Annotate Magnify Zoom Method

The Magnify tool now has a user-selectable Zoom Method. You can choose between the resize methods of “Nearest” or “Bicubic”. The first simply duplicates the values of the ‘nearest’ pixel. As a consequence, you are simply making the original pixels bigger. This is the default setting. The second smooths the transition between original pixel colors by calculating new pixel colors to fill the spaces left behind in the zoom process. It is more pleasing to the eye, but it is not the exact representation of what was recorded.

Locking Annotation

The Lock option now inhibits any changes to the start/end frame and disables the tracking buttons within the Annotate tool.

Additional Proprietary Formats 

We have added more proprietary decoders for video, audio and date/time information. The powerful Amped Conversion Engine, the driving force behind the outstanding DVR/CCTV support of most Amped applications works behind the scenes in Amped Replay, ensuring a user can play the majority of proprietary video out there, whether the video has come from a DVR system, a body worn camera, drone, or any other video capture device.

Additional Updates 

  • Improved Importation
  • Enhanced Reporting
  • Sliders
  • Some bug fixes
