An TW-7080 AV Creativity System

An TW-7080 AV Creativity System

I am sure nobody know what the file extension .mp3x is, not to be surprised, I just invent it. Everybody know mp3 and simply reasoning would allow you to guess it is a kind of extension of mp3 with the addition of a x at end. Well not to far away.

The system is under development so any glitch or user unfriendliness shall be forgiven.

1. Reasoning

YouTube must be the most popular video showcase and we do enjoy watch large number of high quality videos as well as tons of very rush and randomly put together videos. It’s a free platform suitable for all kind of creative activities. Professional high quality video cost a lot to make so it occur to my mind the question of : is there any way one can produce decent video without costing an arm and a leg? Is amateur DIY high quality video possible?

An video is a minimal 16 frames per second and the file size of the video can not possible be small, even for small screen. Thus my experience watching youTube on web page is not good, it;s often get interrupted during the show. The only way to have un-interrupted video is download apk / app on local device which can then do a lot tricks to make watch a pleasure.

An AV show on the other hand is not a video, it is still pictures show that made to look a little bit closer to video in the continuity of the show. It is much closer to a power point show.

2. Theory of Operation

An AV which we call it .mp3x show is a sound track, a number of pictures and a written words for thought put together as a show. The the sound track is a song with lyric, it is obvious that it can but don’t have to replace the written ideas.

The sound track provide the base and a script would need to be created to tell the system when to show the lyric or written words, and another script would be created to tell the system when to display a given picture. In a HTML5, CSS3 and Javascript based web system, the timeline is in unit of second. Many of the dazzling features of rapid cut effect of a video can not be achieved in an AV show but the visual quality of still picture surely far better than the video.

These scripts can technically be created by hand but a set of tool is under develop to make the creator life easier.

3. A Demo

Well, you never hear the country Taiwan you should be ashamed of yourself, go to do your home work. This demo is a popular Taiwanese language singer who has won a few top awards for the country folk singing. A fantastic woman after all the stage glories now open a bread shop with some vision in her home town, Yilan.

4. What For?

Not sure, it was a technical challenge to see how far I can make a web site sing and dance as I tell it to; and indeed during the process, I conclude that it is possible to produce very high quality and versatile show using Web technology.

In the initial phase I will invite some friends to test out the tool to make such show and if it is proved to be useful, maybe open the tool to others, who know! It is still a long shot.

5. Tools Developed So Far

These tools will soon be open to small number of friends to try creativity work as my system is purely a personal grade.

A tw_7080_composer.html is to start a project
A tw_7080_runner.html is for public to store work
A tw_7080_showtime.html is for sharing an individual work

6. Further Development

The picture fade in and fade out mechanism in due course shall be improved that the fade speed can be individually controlled and may be implement different way of fade. The voice over on a sound track probably can also be done by voice synthesizer and voice over on line. That would help lot of people who has no idea how to put voice over a sound track.

On line recording of voice clip is another tool that could be useful so that real voice can be used instead of synthesized voice.

Like video, download pictures to web page is still a problem, so you will notice play second time look a lot better. That is because your web browser buffer the pictures for you. In any case, a much better pre-load mechanism need to be invented.
