Abstract

Multimedia information on a multimedia computer system requires a new method for cutting and copying time domain-type information (audio/video/animation) into a multimedia clipboard. Four Selection objects (such as push buttons) are displayed on the multimedia computer screen. They are labeled Start Cut, End Cut, Begin Copy, End Copy (or similar titles) in proximity to a facility on the screen for viewing (and/or listening to) a section of time domain type media (audio/video/animation). The media is started and the Start Cut button is clicked at a point in time in the media where the cut should begin. The End Cut button is hit at a point in time in the media where the cut should end.

Method for Editing Time-Domain Multimedia Data

      Multimedia information on a multimedia computer system requires
a new method for cutting and copying time domain-type information
(audio/video/animation) into a multimedia clipboard.  Four Selection
objects (such as push buttons) are displayed on the multimedia
computer screen.  They are labeled Start Cut, End Cut, Begin Copy,
End Copy (or similar titles) in proximity to a facility on the screen
for viewing (and/or listening to) a section of time domain type media
(audio/video/animation).  The media is started and the Start Cut
button is clicked at a point in time in the media where the cut
should begin.  The End Cut button is hit at a point in time in the
media where the cut should end.  The section of the media that is
delimited by the button pressed is placed in the Multimedia Clipboard
and deleted from the application containing the media.  Copy works in
a similar fashion except the original media is unaltered (see Fig.
1).

      An Alternate Method:
Two Selection objects (such as push buttons) are displayed on the
multimedia computer screen.  They are labeled Cut and Copy (or
similar titles) in proximity to a facility on the screen for viewing
(and/or listening to) a section of time domain-type media

(audio/video/animation).  The media is started and the Cut button is
clicked and held at a point in time in the media where the cut should
begin.  A pointing device such as a mouse is used to select the...
