Viz Pilot 5.7

Viz Pilot 5.7 is released with new features and bug fixes.

New Features

Main new features:

  • Timeline Editor - The user can now set a poster frame, as well as mark-in and mark-out positions in the video. The timeline editor also now supports multiple tracks to visualise overlapping transition logic elements.
  • Template Tags - In the Newsroom component, templates can be sorted by tag. Template Wizard is used to set tags for each template and the tags are managed via the Pilot Data Server.
  • Media Search - The search results view now has a metadata view which displays detailed information about the currently selected item. The Person Search feature has also been enhanced, and keywords can now be used when searching for media in Viz One.

Various other features:

  • Videos used in templates can now be previewed.
  • New macros have been added for manipulation of the playlist and groups.
  • When exporting and importing templates, custom execution logic is now included as well.
  • A new property on the image control allows templates to prevent users from selecting an image which contains disallowed keywords.
