video.Market7 fundamentally responds to the need for clearer communication and tighter organization throughout every stage of producing media, from determining concept through approval of completed footage. Linkages among stages is key. A great example is our release of script export to teleprompter, strengthening the transition from pre-production to shoot. Users can easily determine exactly what aspects of a script to export: which scenes, and which elements within scenes (ex: whether or not to include character names), and then the resulting text file is compatible with pretty much any commercial teleprompter software or system.
People write all kinds of scripts: many or few scenes, heavy descriptions and/or dense amounts of dialog or light in both, varying amounts of media integrated into scripts. We have developed pagination to allow for faster load times by not waiting for an entire long script to load all at once, instead just several scenes at a time. But the right “several” isn’t the same for everyone all the time as some people’s scenes typically include just a few dozen words and others may have hundreds with multiple files uploaded to each. And, some people’s preferences can be to look at lots of scenes on-screen simultaneously or to control the perspective to a very specific set. So we’ve come up with a mechanism that defaults to showing five scenes at a time, but with a few intuitive controls enables complete customization of exactly what scenes are seen.
Here’s a demo:
Our most recent video.Market7 release also includes a few cool enhancements to the Annotative Player which we’ll get posted to the blog soon.
