Video scripting in Fast video cataloger 5

Fast video cataloger 5 now supports video scripting in C#

I have created a new video that will help you get started with video scripting in Fast video cataloger 5.x. Use the scripting functionality to automate your common tasks in Fast video cataloger. Automating tasks will save you a huge amount of time and will let you avoid boring repetitive tasks. With scripting you can also extend the use of the program beyond what we initially designed it for. And, you can use Fast video cataloger as a powerfull tool when you need to create custom video solutions.

In the video you will learn how to run and edit a video script inside Fast Video Cataloger. You will also learn where to find the provided sample scripts and the documentation for the video scripting API. We provide a sample solution for Microsofts Visual studio. I will show you how to use the sample solution to develop video scripts and get help with the script API through intellisense and catch common errors by compiling scripts inside Visual studio before you run them inside Fast Video Cataloger.

Watch the video below to get a short step by step guide to help you get started. Then, make sure to download Fast video cataloger from our download page and try it for yourself. Video scripting is really not that hard once you get started and most users will see practical results just by tweaking the provided samples.

Extended Video Properties

In Fast Video Cataloger 5 you can now easily add your own custom properties though the Extended video properties feature. You access this new feature from the video details window.

We think the extended video property feature will be very useful in a number of common business settings. It allows you to use Fast video cataloger for solutions we didn’t knew about when we created the program.

Extended video properties is especially useful when you create custom solutions with Fast video cataloger. Using extended video properties together with scripting allows you to store per video data.

We recommend to use the default properties when they are available. Many things can be expressed with the default fields and keywords.

If you have not updated to the 5.x version of Fast video cataloger you can do so from the download page.
