  • Patent number: 10282055
    Abstract: Some embodiments provide a non-transitory machine readable medium having a computer program which when executed by at least one processing unit performs a set of image editing operations on an image. The computer program performs a first image editing operation on a first image to produce an edited second image. Upon receiving a request to perform a second image editing operation on the edited second image, the computer program performs the second image editing operation on the first image to produce an edited third image. Upon receiving an indication of completion of the second image editing operation, the computer program automatically performing the first image editing operation on the edited third image to produce an edited fourth image.

  • Patent number: 9997196
    Abstract: A novel method for retiming a portion of a media content (e.g., audio data, video data, audio and video data, etc.) in a media-editing application is provided. The media editing application includes a user interface for defining a range in order to select a portion of the media content. The media editing application performs retiming by applying a speed effect to the portion of the media content selected by the defined range. For a faster speed effect, the media editing application retimes the selected portion of the media content by sampling the media content at a faster rate. For a slower speed effect, the media editing application retimes the selected portion of the media content by sampling the content at a slower rate.

  • Patent number: 9633697
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method for zoom indication for stabilizing unstable video clips is described. To indicate zoom, a zoom value associated with an unstable segment of a video clip is received. The zoom value represents a value by which frames of the video clip in the unstable segment need to be zoomed to stabilize the unstable segment. An indicia is displayed representing the zoom value in a thumbnail in a user interface. The thumbnail represents the video clip. The indicia displayed over a region in the thumbnail corresponding to the unstable segment in the video clip.

  • Patent number: 9412414
    Abstract: Some embodiments provide a method that receives the addition of a video clip having a first set of spatial properties to a composite video project having a second set of spatial properties. When the first set of spatial properties and the second set of spatial properties are different, the method automatically applies a spatial conform effect to the video clip to conform images of the video clip to the second set of spatial properties. The method receives input to transform images of the video clip as displayed in the composite video project. The method stores the spatial conform effect and the received transform as separate effects for the video clip.
