Browser View and Timeline
I currently have a Blue Iris system running on Windows 10, but I am evaluating SS to see if it makes sense to switch. I have a lot of Apple devices and using a M1 Mac mini with its low power usage is attractive.
I have set up my cameras fine, but I am struggling to understand the browser view. My requirements are for continuous recording, but then flagging motion (confirmed by AI) on the timeline. What settings should I use for this?
My current settings are [Triggers] Motion detection on, 50% sensitivity, all the AI options at 50%, and the Movie Search metadata options checked. In [Continuous Capture] movie capture is checked, and in [Motion Capture] Movie Capture is also checked, with One Movie per event.
On Blue Iris I would simply click on the timeline to start viewing, and then click next to jump to the next motion event on the timeline. If there was something of interest, I would set a start and end flag and then export that part from the timeline.
What is the workflow for SS? On SS no events are shown on the timeline - I just have a long continuous bar? How do I export the correct part from the timeline?
There is an events list, but it doesn't show on the timeline, and if I filter for Humans for example, I get multiple events for the same person (for example 5 Human events on the list for one person walking by), and I can't work out how to export the video around that event anyway?
