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.

Keywording

Tagging videos and video scenes with keywords is a powerful way to make your video collection more browsable and searchable. There are muliple ways of adding keywords and in this video we look at tagging video and scenes one at a time.

Keywording Layout

When you are working on adding keywords to your catalog I suggest you set up a layout that fit your need in your workflow. For the purpose of this video I use a simple setup with the Keywording window, the video player, the video catalog and the scenes window. It is very likely that a different setup fit your purpose better. Some customers working with educational videos use two screens and keep one for video scenes only and the other for keywording and video catalog.

The video is about a minute long so if you are not using keywords yet this is your chance to get started fast.

Video player that helps you focus on work

The integrated video player helps you focus on your work. We want you to keep using your favourite player for watching movies and use our built in player while working. We have added cool new features like saving specific video frames as jpeg images and flexible playback speed. Video players and software appearance and layout generally improve with each new release and Fast Video Cataloger 3 is no exception.We welcome your suggestions. Let us hear from you.

Since it is unlikely that all video scene thumbnails are perfect representations for a scene immediately from the automated indexing process. You add new ones by clicking the capture icon. We have no limit to the amount of video scene thumbnails you can have and they are easy to remove so capture away. For perfectionists that want the exact right place in the video simply pause the video and then use slow play. We have also added burst capture as a way of collecting a dense series of scene thumbnails as a help around moments in a video that is very interesting.
Try out our new player inside Fast Video Cataloger 3, we are quite pleased with it and are keen on feedback.
