With our AOI (Area of interest) editor, you can draw AOIs at any time: after designing your experiment, while in the fielding, or afterward, when you receive your results.
You can add AOIs to any of your media stimuli: videos or images.
When you are in the AOI editor, there are several options on the left panel or sidebar for you to add and edit your AOIs.
In the first section, you can easily choose which type of media to which you wish to add Areas of Interest (AOIs) to — whether it’s an image or a video. Additionally, you can zoom in on the selected media from this section.
Add and edit AOIs
Here you can select tools for adding and editing AOIs on your chosen media.
Static and Dynamic AOI
Static AOI - Analyze non-moving objects.
For example, any element in an image or non-moving element in videos, such as a logo, remains fixed in the same position throughout.
For Static AOI, you can use either:
Draw AOIs with a rectangle shape on your media. Simply click and drag the mouse to start to draw an AOI on your media.
Select the polygon tool to make an irregular form by clicking and adding points to the shape, just make sure the last point and the first point meet in the same location.
Dynamic AOIs - Track moving objects on your video.
For example, if you draw a Dynamic AOI over a moving car when you run the Dynamic AOI, this will follow the car.
For Dynamic AOIs you can draw rectangle shapes on your media that will follow your object.
Tools to edit AOI
Importing a new representation is used on more advanced pieces of media where you need to change the representation of the entire media.
Areas of Interest (AOIs)
Your AOIs will be listed in the AOI section as you add them to your media.
Make AOIs invisible, edit, duplicate, or delete them easily from here.
The AOI timeline supports more than just a single track, enabling you to display many AOIs simultaneously. This provides a much better AOI overview and makes it easier to edit them directly on the timeline: Drag AOIs and shorten or widen the length of the AOIs on the timeline.
|Audio control: Activate or deactivate the audio of your videos; if the audio is activated you can adjust the volume of the video you want to play.
|Playback speed: Modify the playback speed to suit your editing preferences.
Seeking options: Easily navigate by jumping forward or backward on your videos in 5-second increments.
TIP: You can move to a particular moment in time by clicking directly on the video frames that appear in the timeline.
|Jump to beginning/end: Quickly jump to the video’s start or endpoints.
|Frame-by-Frame Navigation: Manually advance or rewind one frame at a time.
|Play/Pause: Play or pause your video by clicking on any of those options.
Once you draw a Dynamic AOI on your video, the dynamic toolbar will appear next to the playback functions. When you run your dynamic AOI, any object under the area of interest that you draw will be tracked.
AOI History records and stores your activity as you create and edit AOIs, preserving unlimited actions or steps. This tool empowers you to monitor your actions, allowing you to undo errors effortlessly and repeat previous steps as needed.
Dynamic AOIs As soon as you add one Dynamic AOI to your project, any action you take to change anything about you must rerun the Dynamic AOI model. So whenever you go back in time, you must run the model and save such changes again. Read more about how to run the Dynamic AOI model here.
