Video Thumbnails Maker Platinum
Video Thumbnails Maker Platinum | 21.6 Mb
Video Thumbnails Maker allows you to make thumbnails (caps, previews, screen-lists) and screenshots of video files. The utility can be used for home-video cataloging and for network video sharing support. Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 Client Profile or Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0+ is required to run the application.

The tool consists of:
- Video Thumbnails Maker = MAKER
- Pictures Thumbnails Viewer = VIEWER
- The main advantage of the VIEWER is the ability to start related video-file right from a thumbnail sheet.
- Moreover, you can start the video from the moment from which the thumbnail shot has been taken!
- VTX picture files are required to be generated.

MAKER's Key Features:
- A thumbnail sheet is generated from a so called "set" of files (pictures from a separate folder or an archive); for instance, if you add a folder with 3 zip-archives and 8 separate pictures in it - 4 sheets will be created (3 for archives and 1 for 8 separate pictures)
- Plenty of options and special effects (see screenshots above); momentary rendered visual preview of your settings right in the Options window
- 5 customizable "base"-presets (see examples above); special (non-"MxN") matrices with big tiles
- You can generate GIF-animations and HTML Galleries automatically using separate tiles of your sheets
- Batch processing; you can pause/continue or stop active job at any moment
- Options preset file format (*.ptm). After you run a preset, the program is automatically opened with the imported tuning
- Command Line Interface (CLI, works only in activated version)
- Zip, 7z and Rar archives are fully supported by the MAKER

VIEWER's Key Features:
- Zip and 7z archives are fully transparent to the program; you can manage a picture without worrying about its actual location; if a pictures is situated in a Zip or 7z archive the program will update the archive automatically
- Rar archives are partly transparent to the VIEWER (automatic unpacking only); that means you can still navigate through pictures in Rar archives, but you can not delete/rename files in such archives (RAR license restriction)
*.ptx is a special "thumbnail gallery" or "sheet of thumbnails" file format; it is used by Pictures Thumbnails Viewer; a file with .ptx extension could be easily opened by double clicking on it in any file manager
*.vtx files are supported (that files are produced by Video Thumbnails Maker); the VIEWER allows you to start the video from its thumbnail sheet
- Pictures Thumbnails Viewer keeps history of your navigation through thumbnail sheets; so you can "jump back and back" using Escape or Backspace keys
- You can substitute any part of your thumbnail sheet right from the viewer as well as regenerate the entire sheet
- Detailed picture info appears when moving the mouse cursor to the right screen border (somewhere at the middle point)

Key Features of The Program:
- Simple rules.
- Hi-Scores table.
- English, Russian, German and French interface languages.
- Small size of the program.
- Hot keys.

Whats New
VTM introduces great new feature - animated video thumbnail sheets!
You can produce animated thumbnail sheets using two completely different formats: WebM and APNG.
WebM format is best for Internet (filesize is small, the quality is great, it is supported by all browsers).
Animated video thumbnail sheets
Here is a scaled 4-seconds WebM example (use video controls to see it fullscreen):
Differences beetween WebM and APNG types of animation are shown in the table below:
new: "Animate Tile number" checkbox is added to "Other Effects" section in Options window. You can enter the desired number in the field below.
new: "Duration" selector is added to the same section. You can set the duration of animation there. The option is available only for WebM format. Duration is set to 2 seconds for APNG format.
new: WebM/APNG selector is added to Environment window. More info in tooltip pop-up windows.
new: Support for WebM video extension is added.
new: "Tutorials" button is added to the main window. It leads to "Tutorials" page on SUU Design site.
changed: "Incremental filenames" and "Save each job into its own folder" settings are added to "Quick settings" panel on the main window.
changed: Audio/Video information module is updated.
changed: Few cosmetic changes.
fixed: "Technical details" section was placed to wrong place under certain circumstances.
----- Changes in Pictures Thumbnails Viewer -----
new: Support for APGN animations is added.
new: "Browse only VTX file" option is added to "Preferences..." window. All other types of files will be ingored.
new: Viewer version is shown in "Preferences..." window.
