Amped Replay Update 19677: Keyframing, Dynamic Text Size and Enhanced Reporting

Here we are again with another update to Amped Replay, the CCTV converter and video player designed for today’s investigators. Image and video annotation is one of Replay’s key features so we have concentrated our efforts here to increase the tools’ simplicity and speed.

Let’s take a closer look!

Keyframing

Giving users various tracking methods, from manual to assisted, allows full flexibility when moving objects around the video area to hide, spotlight, or mark a vehicle or person.

With this update, we have introduced full keyframing, with size and location interpolation. Those people who have used video editors before may be aware of keyframing, but for those who have not, I’ll explain.

Adding a keyframe to an annotation, like a circle or an arrow, stores the parameters for that object at that frame. The parameters stored are the size and the location. A user can then add another keyframe at another frame and the object will automatically interpolate between this and the previous keyframe.

The benefit of this is that a user may only have to add 3-4 keyframes to track an object instead of frame by frame.

Keyframes can be added by the right-click options on the annotation or by utilizing the shortcut key ‘U’.

When this is activated you will also visualize a keyframe marker in the top left of the annotation.
