Annotating video files (+ question about uploading videos to Citavi Cloud)

Need Answer

Hello,

I have two related questions:

1. Will it be possible in the future to annotate video files?

2. I see that I can attach video files to local projects, but not to cloud projects, because of the 50 MB limit. Is there a workaround?


I will soon be working on a large project with a lot of video material and would love to know what Citavi can offer in this regard.

Thanks,

Francesco.

Hello Francesco,

Thank you for your questions.

1. Citavi offers the reference type "Audio or Video Document". You could annotate the video by creating quotes manually. We are currentyl discussing if we can add the page range type "timecodes" in the upcoming version of Citavi.


2. For cloud projects, large video files could be linked to the reference on the Reference tab by clicking on "Internet address". You could save the files in external storage cloud services, e.g. Dropbox.

Kind regards,

Jana

Thanks Jana. Timecodes would be very useful indeed.

As for the storage, yes, I see how it can be done.

It's just not very practical and requires more organization...

Best,

Francesco.

Dear Francesco,

Yes, large attached files in cloud projects can currently not be added in an easy way. We are thinking about upload options for large files (with additional cloud storage space) for the future.

Kind regards,

Jana
