While developing the basic version of the AI Video Reviewer for a client, the TrackIt team was tasked with creating a solution that would allow the client to directly edit video assets on Adobe Premiere once they’ve been processed by the AI Video Reviewer.
While it offers numerous features, it lacks native support for programmatically generating markers, which are essential for efficient video editing. This white paper explores how the TrackIt AI Video Reviewer tool addresses this limitation by automating marker generation for Adobe Premiere projects. By leveraging the power of Amazon AI/ML services, this solution streamlines the post-production editing process and enhances collaboration among team members.
Key Challenges and Requirements: The white paper first highlights the challenges faced by post-production teams in manually adding markers to video assets. This time-consuming and tedious process is prone to errors and slows down the editing workflow. The need for a solution that allows direct editing of video assets processed by the AI Video Reviewer tool within Adobe Premiere Pro is identified.
Solution Overview: The white paper dives into the solution provided by the TrackIt team. Recognizing that Final Cut Pro files can be imported into Adobe Premiere Pro, the team reverse-engineered a migration file to create a marker template. By incorporating the correct tags and metadata, they developed a tool that generates marker files in XML format, compatible with Adobe Premiere Pro. This approach eliminates the dependency on Final Cut Pro and allows for seamless marker integration.
Implementation Process: The paper outlines the step-by-step implementation process of the TrackIt AI Video Reviewer tool. It explains how the tool detects items in video assets using Amazon AI/ML services, generates markers, and exports them as XML files. The guide then demonstrates how to import the generated marker file into Adobe Premiere Pro, making the markers readily available for editing and navigation.
Benefits and Impact: By automating marker generation, the white paper highlights the significant benefits for post-production teams. Editors can now swiftly navigate to precise timecodes within the video, improving efficiency and reducing manual effort. Moreover, the AI Video Reviewer tool enhances collaboration by allowing team members to view and utilize markers generated by the AI/ML services, streamlining the curation and editing processes.
Conclusion: The white paper concludes by emphasizing the role of the TrackIt AI Video Reviewer tool in accelerating the Adobe Premiere Pro editorial pipeline. It underlines the importance of efficient marker generation for post-production workflows, and how this tool simplifies the process while maintaining compatibility with Adobe Premiere Pro.
