Film sequence generation strategies for automatic intelligent video editing (1997)
Journal Article
Butler, S., & Parkes, A. (1997). Film sequence generation strategies for automatic intelligent video editing. Applied Artificial Intelligence, 11(4), 367-388. https://doi.org/10.1080/088395197118190

In this article, we describe an approach to generic automatic intelligent video editing, which was used in the implementation of the LIVE system. We discuss cinema theory and related systems that recombine film fragments into sequences. We introduce...

Filmic space-time diagrams for video structure representation (1996)
Journal Article
Parkes, A. P., Butler, S., & Parkes, A. P. (1996). Filmic space-time diagrams for video structure representation. Signal Processing: Image Communication, 8(4), 269-280. https://doi.org/10.1016/0923-5965%2895%2900052-6

In this paper, we propose a novel approach to computer representation for interactive film editing. We describe a prototype system developed at Lancaster which uses this approach, and show how such a system supports film editing. Our work involves th...

Intelligent strategies for the presentation and interpretation of video in intelligent tutoring systems
Presentation / Conference
Butler, S., & PARKES, A. Intelligent strategies for the presentation and interpretation of video in intelligent tutoring systems. Poster presented at ED-MEDIA 94

Multimedia systems can now have cheap video, and Multimedia Authoring Systems are being used for creating Intelligent 'I'utoring Systems (ITS). Thus interactive film/video is now available as a resource for Us designers. Film however must be used ca...
