Here’s something that should revolutionize the way we edit/browse videos in the future. It’s courtesy of Pierre Dragicevic and Gonzalo Ramos, the pair who created it. Now you can browse video clips by interacting with moving objects on the screen instead of having to use a slider. DimP stands for Direct Manipulation Video Player and it’s pretty awesome.
Best of all, you won’t have to modify or convert your video in any way to use the technology. The player knows the movements in videos and shows you the motion of an object. This allows you to drag objects so that you advance or rewind the clip. It’s pretty cool to watch in action and should make life easier for video editors and the rest of us who just like to play with cool stuff. Check out some videos below.
