GrayMeta, an AI-powered metadata company, has updated its Curio Extension for Adobe Creative Cloud.
GRayMeta 12Sep2019
New functionality includes football event detection, for instance. Editors can use GrayMeta’s in-house Football Detection AI model in Adobe Premiere Pro to identify when key events within a football match take place, such as red cards, yellow cards, goals and penalties, enabling them to create highlight clips, compilations and other additional content to support football programming.

Editors are also now said to be able to find exact assets quicker and easier by searching for content directly within Adobe Premiere Pro, based on the category or collection organisation assigned to it within the GrayMeta Platform.

There’s also a multi-asset download option and indicator: editors can now quickly line up work by selecting multiple assets to download, specifying whether original or proxy content, and using easy one-click download process. The indicator saves time and effort by identifying which items have already been downloaded.

Also, editors are now able to import the time-based optical character recognition (OCR) metadata created by machine-learning services as markers or clips into a project. Once imported, the editor can easily see, identify and act on forced narratives, NSFW content, slates, texted elements and any other key texted areas in a programme, saving time in the edit suite. The markers include all detected text in frame, enabling quick overview of all text detected through entire programme and, when it appears, within the markers panel. Editors can click on any marker and automatically jump to that point in time.

Advanced technical cues are also part of the update. Editors have access to GrayMeta’s full suite of machine learning technical cues, extending the existing support of black frame detection, credits and slates detection with programme start and end times, silence and texted/textless detections.

Editors can now import the texted lower thirds and textless-tail detections generated by GrayMeta machine-learning services, directly into the timeline as markers or clips. Once imported the user can identify if textless elements appear at the tail, and/or where texted content is within the programme, eliminating the need to manually scrub to find these key moments.

And finally, editors can also import transcription speech-to-text AI results directly into their project as an SRT (SubRip subtitle file) based caption file, allowing full creative and editorial control within the Adobe Premiere Pro Captions editor.

“By bringing all the asset metadata to the editing platform, users can take advantage of data intelligence in their native creative environment, further reducing time and effort for the creative professional to realise their vision,” said John Ying, SVP, Product Management, GrayMeta.
