iVog: iMovie Video Plugin Project

vlog 3.0 [a blog about vogs] iVog: iMovie Video Plugin Project

In collaboration with Dr Seyed Tahaghoghi of computer science here at RMIT I've been successful in getting an Apple University Development Fund development grant (now that's a silly title isn't it?). The aim of this is to develop a plugin for iMovie that will:
  • compress your edited video to appropriate format (ideally a decent mp4 file)
  • export this compressed video directly into your blog CMS
  • allow text entry to accompany the blog post (including title of post)
  • automatically allow selection of categories and the usual raft of additional things that blogs support (comments and trackback enabled, date and time of publishing)
  • automatically extract a series of still frames to produce a micron (micro movie) for use as poster movie (say, 20 frames from throughout the video)
  • make this micron autoplay when mouse in event occurs and load vlog clip when mouse click event occurs
