Called LiveLight, this method constantly evaluates action in the video, looking for visual novelty and ignoring repetitive or eventless sequences, to create a summary that enables a viewer to get the gist of what happened. What it produces is a miniature video trailer. Although not yet comparable to a professionally edited video, it can help people quickly review a long video of an event, a security camera feed, or video from a police cruiser's windshield camera.Much like the Hemingway app for writers, LiveLight trumps the human output in favor of pre-conceived elegance - which could be fundamentally offensive on an artistic level.
Then again, this would have made L'Avventura a lot easier to sit through.
