Disney Demos Automated Multicamera Editing

Disney Demos Automated Multicamera Editing | Video Breakthroughs | Scoop.it

Disney Researchers have come up with a way to auto-edit together footage from multiple social cameras. The team created an algorithm that takes in multiple video feeds and outputs a “single video of user-specified length that cuts between the multiple feeds automatically,” according to their research paper.

Researchers Ido Arev, Hyun Soo Park, Yaser Sheikh, Jessica Hodgins and Ariel Shamir, said their algorithm uses “existing cinematic rules.” 

By determining the center of attention of the cameras and, by default, their operators, the algorithm indicates where the cuts should go. The center of attention is key. It is derived from the orientation of each person involved in a group activity and the footage they capture. The aggregate of the resulting viewing angles is referred to as the “gaze concurrence” or “3D joint attention,” which produces a metric for the “spatial and temporal location of the important ‘content’ of the activity.”

Transcoding Best Practices: Mezzanine Formats

Transcoding Best Practices: Mezzanine Formats | Video Breakthroughs | Scoop.it

First things first – What is a Mezzanine format? A mezzanine format is a mid-rez working copy of your video asset which is of sufficient quality to generate your highest output, but small enough to move around, archive, and work with. The goal is to free up resources once all major edits and processing are completed. The source of your mezzanine format can come from many places. When encoding from a tape with a fully completed asset, the encode can be the mezzanine file. When exporting from a non-linear editor such as Final Cut or Avid, the format chosen as the output can be a mezzanine. The point is, all major editing and processing is completed in the highest format available and this smaller asset can take it from here.
