Field Field Type Mandatory Multiplicity Description
Extract Metadata boolean   Whether to extract metadata
Extract Frames complex 0..1 Whether to extract frames if the asset has a video stream
  • Approve Frames
boolean   Whether to set extracted frames as approved automatically
  • Set Master Frame
integer 0..1 Approve and set the nth extracted frame as master. If n is greater than the number of frames, the last frame is used.
  • Set Frames On Parent Asset
boolean   Set the extracted frames to the parent asset if it exists, otherwise set on the current asset.
  • Create Tiled Image
complex 0..1 Create images from the extracted frames. Individual extracted frames are discarded.
  • Title
string 0..1 Optional title for tiled image. Use %index for an auto-incremented title. Use %interval to include the time interval between frames if using Fixed Interval.
  • Tiled Image Output
complex   Specify output of tiled keyframe image; this might produce multiple tiled keyframes.
  • Frames Per Row
integer   How many keyframe images to keep in a row of tiled images
  • Number of Rows
integer   How many rows to produce in a tiled image
  • Image Format
boolean   The format for the resulting tiled image (JPG or PNG)
  • Keyframe Output
complex   Output format specification for each tiled frame.
  • Target Width (px)
double   Width of each frame tile desired. Ignored if Resize Mode = Fixed Height or Scale.
  • Target Height (px)
double   Height of each frame tile desired. Ignored if Resize Mode = Fixed Width or Scale.
  • Width Scale (>0.0)
double   Scale to be applied to each frame tile if Resize Mode = Scale
  • Height Scale (>0.0)
double   Scale to be applied to each frame tile if Resize Mode = Scale
  • Resize Mode
single option field   How keyframe should be resized
  • Fixed Number
integer 0..1 Number of frames to extract at equally spaced intervals
  • Fixed Time
complex 0..1 Fixed time in seconds to extract a frame (if Fixed Number not set)
  • Time
double   The time to extract in seconds
  • Time Range
double 0..1 Time range in seconds around specified time from which each frame should be extracted
  • Fixed Interval
complex 0..1 Extract frames at equally spaced intervals (if Fixed Number and Fixed Time not set)
  • Interval
double   Time interval in seconds starting from zero at which to extract frames
  • Maximum Limit
integer   If the interval specified would result in more than this number of keyframes, the interval will be adjusted (to a whole second value) to ensure this limit is met.
