DVD-Explorer Review Software

The AfterBurner DVD-Explorer software player has been designed to quickly review and navigate video-DVDs produced by the AfterBurner time-lapse DVD recorder.

Unlike standard DVD software players that are designed to show video clips and movies, DVD-Explorer has a number of enhanced features that allow for quick review and navigation of a video-DVD including: 

  • Single step forwards or backwards for each video frame
  • Play at various speeds, forwards or backwards
  • Go to specific data and time
  • Save selected frames as JPEG or BMP files
  • Save a gallery of pictures with user comments
  • Interface to an external jog and shuttle control for ease of navigation
  • Read AfterBurner specific data to speed up DVD navigation  

DVD-Explorer Main Screen

Once a video file or DVD has been successfully opened, the DVD-Explorer Main Screen is shown. This consists of a review screen that shows the video, along with a number of navigation buttons and sliders. The second smaller screen shows the last captured still image or chapter / alarm thumbnail.

DVD-Explorer Picture Gallery

The DVD Explorer Gallery is designed to give a summary of the points of interest on a DVD. Clicking the capture button on the Main Screen transfers a still image of the current play position to the Gallery. Clicking any of the thumbnail images in the Gallery causes the Main Screen to be opened at the point of that event. The captured images may also be saved as JPEG or BMP file.
