'14- Creativity Support IDE ACM CHI '15
For those interested in this IDE: The experimental implementation is available at http://textalive.jp/ - enjoy video authoring right on your browser!
This paper presents TextAlive, a graphical tool that allows interactive editing of kinetic typography videos in which lyrics or transcripts are animated in synchrony with the corresponding music or speech.
While existing systems have allowed the designer and casual user to create animations, most of them do not take into account synchronization with audio signals. They allow predefined motions to be applied to objects and parameters to be tweaked, but it is usually impossible to extend the predefined set of motion algorithms within these systems.
We therefore propose an integrated design environment featuring
A preliminary user study with designers, programmers, and casual users demonstrated its capability in authoring various kinetic typography videos.
