Context

In 2021, image and video have definitely invaded social networks. Five billion YouTube videos are viewed daily.
Image and video editing are widely used on all platforms, computers and smartphones. The trend is now moving towards enhancing videos by adding effects to their content. The software used for this is either complex and reserved for professionals (Adobe suite), or simple but limited in terms of creativity on smartphones (Facebook and Instagram filters). Numerous users need very simple tools that leave room for their creativity.

Technology

Spooqs uses algorithms to cut out objects, track them in videos (smart scissors, deformable tracking, face tracking, etc.) and apply more than sixty seamless effects to them, configurable and combinable. Once modified, the video can be exported in all the usual formats, e.g. animated GIF or MP4 for example. The use of AI, previously reserved for smartphones or "pro" software, allows for the precise detection of faces and their components. Spooqs is a stand-alone Windows software application for the video enthusiast and professional user segment.

Advantages

Its innovative graphic interface enables it to modify images and videos very quickly. Its detection tools based on AI guarantee both precise cutting out and rapid processing. The application of effects, which has the characteristic of being non-destructive, is very simple: for example adding text that follows a moving figure or blurring a face can be done in a few clicks.

State of progress

  • The standalone software for Windows is fully functional
  • The Mac OS version will be available in 2021.

Applications

Any application for the general public, the experienced "youtuber", identity protection, where there is a need to change the appearance of the content of images and videos: promote a product, darken a background, pixelate a face, quickly create spectacular animated GIFs, produce ground truth for artificial intelligence, etc.
