fflipper

A video clipper that takes ELAN files as it's input, and generates clips based on the annotations in a selected tier.

Installation

To install on OS X (tested and works with Yosemite:)

Install Homebrew with the command

ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"

If this doesn't work, consult the Homebrew documentation.

Install python and tk from brew

brew install python --with-tcl-tk

Install ElementTree for python:

easy_install elementtree should work, if not try sudo easy_install elementtree

Download fflipper, pyelan, and clipper.

Move these into the fflipper folder, and make sure that each folder is named just pyelan and clipper respectively (ie remove the -master, if you downloaded them from GitHub as archives.)

Run

Use the command python /path/to/fflipper/fflipper.py in the terminal to run ffliper, remember to change the /path/to part to the location of fflipper on your machine.

Some development of this project was supported by a grant from the national sicence foundation: NFS BCS 1251807
