Marjane Satrapi

Added

  • Ability to crop the movie
    Click on the overflow menu of the movie in the movie list -> Edit cropping -> Set values in pixel
    Shot detection will only use the cropped area for analysis, disregarding e.g. a cropped black letterbox!

Version 0.2.0

I live in cinema. I feel I’ve lived here forever.

Agnès Varda

Added

  • Ability to switch from slider to input field for row count, column count and minutes per row
    this gives theoretically the ability to increase row and column count to 100 resulting in 10000 thumbs. This feature is still experimentaland the maximum possible values have not been tested! I did a test with 5000 thumbs which took some time.
    If you want to experiment with it do the following
    — Scroll all the way down in the settings menu
    — Set the Max size cached frames value to 80 (this is the frame resolution used for displaying within MoviePrint, when saving a MoviePrint the frame get’s captured in the appropriate size)
    — Check the Show input field instead of slider
    — Scroll up and manually set column and row count. Be patient everything now takes time. I suggest you slowly approach the maximum values 🙂
  • Basic smoke test

Note:
In case you have used a previous version it is wise to do Menu -> View -> Reset application the first time you startup the new version.

Saved MoviePrint with 5000 frames

Version 0.1.17 alpha

I live in cinema. I feel I’ve lived here forever.

Agnès Varda

Added

  • Export a MoviePrint
    File path, column count and the selected frame numbers are saved to a JSON file. This lets you restore a MoviePrint at a later time via Import MoviePrint.
  • Embed data when saving a MoviePrint (PNG only)
    File path, column count and the selected frame numbers are embedded into the PNG file. This lets you restore a MoviePrint at a later time via Import MoviePrint. Embedding the data is activated by default. This can be changed in the settings menu.
  • Import MoviePrint
    Restore a MoviePrint by importing a previously exported JSON or PNG with embedded data. In case the movie location has been changed, use Replace Movie to point to the new location.
  • Clear movie list

Changed

  • When clicking SAVE on the thumb, the image is now saved to the location specified in the settings menu
Export a MoviePrint
Import a MoviePrint (from PNG or JSON)
Replace the used movie

Version 0.1.16 alpha

I live in cinema. I feel I’ve lived here forever.

Agnès Varda

Added

  • Support for editing multiple MoviePrints per movie
  • Adding, duplicating and removing MoviePrints
  • Switching between grid view and timeline view
  • Replacing a movie
  • Adding and removing movies from the list
  • Expand a scene/thumb to dive further into a movie
  • Hide scenes in timeline view, similar to hide thumbs in grid view

Improved

  • Handling of thumb images, which should result in a performance improvement
  • Movie list look
  • No more limitation when the settings menu is open
  • Updated npm packages

Changed

  • The application state now gets stored in an sqlite3 database which supports larger sizes. Before, reopening the application could result in loss of data when the state got too large due to lots of shown thumbs for example.
  • The frame scan data gets now also stored in an sqlite3 database which should result in a performance improvement when handling long movies.
  • When adding movies a thumb version is stored which can be limited in size. See settings menu. The default is 640px in width or height. This saves space and should improve performance when handling a large amount of thumbs.
  • When MoviePrints get saved, the images are now captured life. This compensates for only capturing smaller versions in the first place. This should be equally fast.

Note:
In case you have used the previous version please do Menu -> View -> Reset application the first time you startup the new version.
