Interactive Video Object Manipulation

Dan Goldman recently posted a video on Interactive Video Manipulation, a new technology being developed. This has great possibilities, and the demo is very impressive.

I can’t wait until I get to play with a consumer version.

This demo illustrates our research to bring interactivity to video editing: Our system analyzes videos using computer vision techniques, enabling interactive annotation, browsing, and even drag-and-drop composition of new still images using video footage. This is a joint research project of Adobe and the University of Washington.

  • Alec, totally cool! Thanks for sharing, and I do hope this technology is available soon for us!

  • This also adds another layer of media literacy. Every time a new technology comes out, we recognize the pros can cons. Of course there are great applications and we’ll see some wonderful creations but verifying video just got that much more complicated!
