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.
MAKERs 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
VIEWERs 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.
