New video editing ideas

A video about “Interactive Video Object Manipulation” demonstrates research done by Adobe. One can for example, draw a rectangle on a moving object, type text into it and the text stays attached as the object moves:Or, with several people in a video, one can create a picture where shots from different times appear side by side, thus increasing the probability that all of them look good.

If you want to see more technology in a similar vein, look at these videos:
  • Image Resizing by Seam Carving: Resizes images without them looking distorted. By marking areas, one can remove these areas when compressing the image.
  • Microsoft Photosynth: Places images in a 3-dimensional space allowing one to do all kinds of cool zooming etc.
