Automatic Trailer Generation
"Semantic Video Patterns" is a project hosted by the University
of Bremen (April 2005 - April 2006) and carried out by Masters students
of the International Master Program entitled "Digital
The core idea of the SVP project is to generate a movie trailer automatically
from a movie. Therefore, a movie is analysed for several image and sound
features (low-level analysis) which are then combined to a higher-level
analysis. Based on this information, the footage of the given movie is
automatically selected, edited and mixed with on-the-fly created video
animation sequences - all according to pre-defined trailer patterns.
Our project flyer gives
an overview of the system. The revised
publication at eCulture Factory describes the trailer generation system
as well. Our demo video on the description
site explains the project in detail. Several sample trailers, pictures
and presentation material are published in the download
