    Question: Is the ability to play the last few seconds of video important

    - what a totally useless piece of (&(*&(
    - There could be thousands of uses

    - my software doesn't have that capability

    The idea was to shoot video of each golfer from behind and across; then
    play these short videos back in slow motion and normal speed while they
    were having their awards supper.

    This was accomplished and the video was up and playing on a large screen
    within 15 minutes of leaving the course. The only PROBLEM was that some
    golf swings took far more time than others and when played back in slow
    motion; the audience would lose interest. As well in attempting to
    capture only the "golf swing" we missed some completely.

    The solution was a simple program change that allowed for ONLY the final
    3 secs of the video (the swing) to be played in slow motion. This way we
    could start recording right when the golfer addressed the ball and turn
    off the recording on completion of the swing. From now on we won't miss
    any more Swings.

    Now each video plays followed by the finals 3 seconds in Slo-Mo.

    The video clips from those 2 tournaments is being switched out daily.
    Along with a demo of the slo-mo and other capabilities.

    What other action sport could benefit from this technique?
    Rodeo and their final 8 seconds.
    Water Skiing wipe outs.

    With video timeliness is important

    When things are simple they are usually quick. It took a couple minutes to offload the video onto the laptop. Then mere seconds to catalogue them. The cataloging looks like this:

    photo c:/search\golfvid001.mpg
    xxx.c:/search\golfvideo001.mpg

    photo start==-3000 speed=125 c:/search\golfvid001.mpg
    xxx.c:/search\golfvideo001.mpg

    photo c:/search\golfvid002.mpg
    xxx.c:/search\golfvideo002.mpg

    photo start==-3000 speed=125 c:/search\golfvid002.mpg
    xxx.c:/search\golfvideo002.mpg
    ..
    ..
    the -3000 indicates the start point is 3 seconds before the end of the video and the 125 is the speed where 1000 is full speed.
    The auto catalogue used the path name in the search detail line as often the name of the file and folder are important.

    Nobody can do golf video faster than this.

    More video control with the on/off switch

    While showing those golf video clips after the supper; a number of golfers wanted to see their swing. But at the time we couldn't easily do that. They were just 2 video clips in among 180 or so. Now there is a SOLUTION.

    By creating an extremely short video as each group approaches the Tee (maybe showing a whiteboard containing the flight# and player names?); the program will use that as a "group break point". That will now allow for the golfer to indicate which group they were in from the tournament sheet and we can replay their video and those of the rest of the players in that group. It will also enable us to play the videos random by group. For the Barrel racing it will randomly replay the video group for each racer. For this event we shut the camcorder off and immediately switch it back on after the horse and rider round each barrel. Randomly playing just part of the run wouldn't be the same.

    Here is what a respondent from another Forum said:

    "this is an honest-to-God useful feature. I've often wished the shuffle function on music devices could be made to work this way. The reason is that I mainly listen to classical music. Much of that music is divided into movements, with each movement being a separate track. The movements themselves are not independent, however, and in sequence form the complete work. So I'd like to be able to say, for instance, "Play all my Beethoven pieces in a random order", and have Symphony #6 followed by Piano Concerto #5 rather than Symphony #6, movement II followed by Piano Concerto #5, movement I."

    Very useful feature

    this is an honest-to-God useful feature. I've often wished the shuffle function on music devices could be made to work this way. The reason is that I mainly listen to classical music. Much of that music is divided into movements, with each movement being a separate track. The movements themselves are not independent, however, and in sequence form the complete work. So I'd like to be able to say, for instance, "Play all my Beethoven pieces in a random order", and have Symphony #6 followed by Piano Concerto #5 rather than Symphony #6, movement II followed by Piano Concerto #5, movement I.

    Never see the final 3 seconds of video

    You can never stop recording soon enough sometimes. But don't worry about profanities ruining the immediate video playback. With the PD/C option the last 3 seconds of video will never get played.

    The Profanity Delay / Censor option.

    Reasons to use this cool Video feature:
    If someone you don't like goes by. Stop recording.
    If you might get sued. Stop recording.
    If someone says something nasty or threatening to you. Stop recording.
    If you are videoing a Wild Wild party be ready to. Stop recording
    .

    Sometime later you can examine those final few seconds to see which videos goes to the XXX folder.

    Wouldn't it be great if YouTube offered this feature. Then we could quickly send our unedited video. As long as we stop recording quickly. Come on YouTube do it for the Swampies.

    Just as with the "golf" enhancement whereby the "start==" element changing to negative "-3000" allows for playing the last 3 secs (the swing) in slo-mo. A similar change to the "wait=-3" will play all but the final 3 seconds of a video. When they are acting bad; cut 'em off.

    Catalog the video using "gf" and then change the resultant .txt file replacing every "photo " with "photo wait=-3 " So within minutes of offloading the video it's ready to play. Never see them last 3 seconds EVER.
