  • Improved performance for catalogs with lots of extended properties. You should notice a performance improvement when switching videos if your catalog has more than 1000 extended properties.
  • Added new option when auto assigning keywords from filename, the new option will only consider text inside brackets as keywords, i.e [this text] or {this text}.
  • Add new sample scripts.
  • If you used a hotkey that was a plain key (i.e no ALT/Shift/CTRL) and had keyboard focus in the script console window the shortcut action was executed. Now the character is written to the text window.
  • When updating multiple keywords in the keywords manager to set color the first keywords text also got updated.
  • When the write metadata option is enabled metadata is now also written for multi-selected videos.
  • If metadata writing fails because a file is locked by a program fast video cataloger will keep trying. (this typically failed because the video was playing in the internal or an external video player).

How to set keywords to video scenes

How to set keywords to video scenes in Fast Video Cataloger

Fast Video Cataloger lets you assign keyword tags to specific scenes in videos. You can then search for these tags to find a specific moment in a video. This video shows how to add a keyword to a scene and how to search for that keyword.

 

 

For this example, we will use a tutorial video about the software.
Select the video.
Look at the timeline of the video.
Select the scene to get a keyword.
Make sure you have the keywording window open in your layout.
Make sure the checkbox for tagging a scene is selected.
Write the keyword, or use one of the keywords you have used before.
You now see the tagged scene has a changed color tint.
If you hover the mouse over the tag you see the assigned keywords.
Now we will try to search for this video.
Make sure you have the scene search window in your layout.
Go to the scene search section.
Click on the keyword
You will see the matching scenes.
Click on the thumbnail to play the video from the tagged point in time.
Tagged scenes will also match video file searches.
