Video Annotation Tool

I’ve mentioned in a prior post that Jeff Pelz’s group has a handy tool (note only for Macs) that allows you do frame-by-frame manual analysis that is common in mobile eye tracking experiments. I was showing the program to some students recently and realized that the sourceforge page does not have a compiled version and some of the quirks aren’t well explained. Here is a compiled copy with source code. Note the program expects video formats that can be opened via quicktime and must end in .mov (I find handbrake helpful for video conversion), also the labels.txt file must be on your desktop to have your predefined shortcuts. Otherwise the program is like a video player where you can easily mark time codes and milliseconds into a text editor and then save to a text file
