VideoScript 2.2, a real-time image and video processing language for Mac OS and Mac OS X, is now available from
VideoScript, a company that does custom digital video and imaging solutions.
You can automatically analyze video and images with this freeware scripting language. A simple script can resize an entire directory of image files or detect movement from a camera, track objects, perform image enhancement, generate movies and more, according to Tim Molteno, lead developer at VideoScript. VideoScript’s ability to track multiple objects with sub-pixel accuracy is widely used for the scientific analysis of video data, he added.
New features in version 2.2 include enhanced object tracking, new image filters and transformations. Version 2.2 also includes “preliminary support” for Mac OS X, Molteno said. VideoScript supports the QuickTime, MPEG, AVI, and DV video formats (though the last three are import only). Supported image file formats are JPEG and, for import only, PNG, QuickTime Image Format (QTIF), BMP, TIFF, GIF, MacPaint, Photoshop, QuickDraw PICT, Silicon Graphics, Targa, and FlashPix.
Tutorials, examples of applications and additional support are available from
the company Web site, as is a large number of example scripts, on-line help, and the VideoScript 2.2 software itself.
