Clesh offers an online video editing tool for consumers and web communities. It is based on the same technology as FORscene (used in the professional market) and functions as a stand-alone platform or as a tool to enable other websites to offer their own video services independently.
The Clesh platform sits on the Cloud and video, audio, and still content can be uploaded via a standard web browser or client based software (for Firewire DV capture). The hosted material can then be reviewed, edited, and published entirely online from any location in the world using a Java enabled web browser.
Clesh supports storyboard shot selection, frame-accurate editing, transitions and various other controls such as; pan, zoom, colour and light correction, and audio levels. Content can be published in an array of formats such as a Podcast, Mpeg2, or in a format supported by all popular web browsers. All content is protected by personalised login and all content rights remain with the author.
Clesh may also be embedded as a component of other websites to provide tools for the management, editing, and publication of video content for a website's members and administrators alike. In this context Clesh provides additional support such as; re-branding for a consistent look and feel, seamless logon integration, and a moderation facility.
The service offers many advanced features including:
- Real-time video rendering (including effects and transitions)
- Multiple audio tracks
- Secured log-on
- Authors retain all rights to their footage
- Frame accurate editing
- Storyboard facility (annotate selected areas of video footage, assemble with drag-and-drop)
- Import & hosting of media from DV tape and various video, audio, and still image format files
- Publish to podcast (MPEG-4), MPEG-2, web (Java Applet), Flash, Ogg, and JPEG
- Chatrooms (chat with other Clesh users and get product support)
- Showreel (videos can be published to a public gallery)
- Moderation (review of videos by a 3rd party prior to publication)
Clesh is based on the same technology as FORscene. An array of servers on the internet backbone hides functionality such as of storage, security, access and delivery from users accessing Clesh via a web browser.
Access to Clesh is via a rich user interface. For example it supports drag and drop functionality. Assistance is provide via dynamic tool tips and the right mouse button is often used to access more advanced functions.
