Welcome to the new official blog for the Fast Video Indexer software. My name is Fredrik Lönn and I am the author of the software. If you are reading this you probably already know about Fast video indexer. Well just in case, let me tell you in short… this is after all the first post on this blog.
Fast Video Indexer is a Windows program that takes a number of videos files and automatically extracts photos from them. It can combine the extracted photos into a single collection images that gives you a clear instant view of the entire video clip. And, it can create an html page that can serve as a preview if you want to put the video on the web. In the latest version I added a new feature that now makes it possible to create an entire video preview web site for several videos.
So how do people use Fast Video Indexer?
Video professionals use it to organize videos they work with, to faster find video scenes and save time.
Video enthusiasts use it to keep track of their video collection and to quickly preview videos
I made the program to be able to browse my entire video collection even though I have most of the video files archived away.
And these are just some of the common uses. Fast video indexer is used in forensics to quickly browse evidence, to create print training materials from videos and much much more.
In this blog I will tell you about the latest improvements to the software, novel uses of the program and share some tips to get the most out of the software.
I also intend to share video related tips, software recommendation and information in general.
And, I hope to get feedback from you, my users.
If you work with videos you need to try Fast video indexer, download the free trial version and test it for yourself.
Until next time
Can your software do this:
I want to capture from dv tape, right from the camera, one frame at a time, but put into a continuous .mov format.
Here is the reason. When I try to capture from a defective tape, it shows pixilation. But, if I pause the tape, I get a good picture. If I advance frame by frame, every frame is a good picture. So, I am looking for a software that will capture the frame, advance, capture the frame, advance, capture the frame….eventually giving me a good video file.
If your system cannot do this, I suggest to come up with a process to do it. It would sell like hotcakes.
