DimP, a direct manipulation video player prototype which allows to browse video clips by directly dragging their content. It also allows users to scroll through video to where they want to be at least two times faster.
In a paper presented by Pierre Dragicevic, Gonzalo Ramos, Jacobo Bibliowicz, Derek Nowrouzezahrai, Ravin Balakrishnan, Karan Singh from the University of Toronto, the authors present their method for browsing video by directly dragging content by
“1) automatically extracting motion data from videos; and 2) a new technique called relative flow dragging that lets users control video playback by moving objects of interest along their visual trajectory.”
The effect is pretty awesome. But there is a downside. In order for DimP to effectively track the motions made various objects in an image, it needs to process the video. And that can take a very long time if you have large, high resolution videos with a lot of objects. It will work with pretty much any AVI video, but you might have to wait a few days for it to process all the frames.
