Highlight Hunter – Face palm your video

Hokay, I’ll admit it I’m not really a video kinda person I’m more a stills kinda guy. One of the reasons I don’t like video is I don’t have the time or patience to go through a full days shooting to find the highlights, to cut them out into individual files and do all the re-editing stuff involved with it.  Highlighter Hunter may go some way to alleviating this concern.  When you have a moment you want to highlight while recording, you place your palm over the lens of your recorder momentarily to bookmark that section. When you get back to your computer, Highlight Hunter will scan your entire video, look for each bookmark and then create a 30 second clip preceding each bookmark.

The software should work with any digital video camera whether it be a POV, P&S , DSLR, mobile phone or otherwise. Highlight Hunter mentions that most of their testing has been done on H.264 or AVC HD, and I’m sure there’s probably cameras out that film in some unsupported codec 🙂

Available as a free download and also in a Premium edition that scans faster, removes watermarks, and gives you upgrades and priority support for $29.99.
