Updated: Dec 7, 2019

- Bumped the minimum MacOS target down to 10.13 from 10.14 to accommodate users on older versions of MacOS.

- Added a preferences panel. Preferences can be accessed through the standard Mac top bar by going to Sentry Viewer > Preferences or the keyboard shortcut (CMD + ,)

- Added a date format option. This option will determine how date and times are displayed in the event browser, playhead time, and timecodes in exported videos are displayed.

- Date and time formats are now localized based on your computer's language setting.

- Added an option to hide the rear license plate from your rear camera footage in the main player window. This option can be accessed from the preferences menu. Note: this option does not affect video export settings.

- Added an option to hide the rear license plate from your rear camera footage for exporting videos. This option can be accessed from the Export menu (File > Export).

- Added an option to automatically open a movie after it has finished exporting.

- Added the option to jump to next/previous events in a multi-event timeline.

- Jump to the previous clip by going to Playback > Previous Event or keyboard shortcut J. Alternatively, press the previous button in the main interface.

- Jump to the next event by going to Playback > Next Event or keyboard shortcut K. Alternatively, press the next button in the main interface.

- The event currently playing in the main interface can be revealed by going to Playback > Reveal Current Event or pressing the reveal button in the bottom left of the main interface. This will select the current playing files in Finder.

- The text next to the previous/next button displays which number event is currently playing in a multi-event timeline.

- Changing the playback resolution setting in the main player window will continue playback from the current time instead of starting the current composition from the beginning.

- Added tooltips to buttons. Hover over a button to learn what a particular button does.

- Added the ability to embed timecode into an exported video. The timecode will reflect the real world date and time the event was captured.

- The "include timecode" is a toggle option in the export dialog box.

- Removed dynamic layout for timelines where events contain different number of source video files (combining V10 four camera events with pre V10 three camera events). This caused a regression that would not allow these timelines to export.

- Added the ability to choose export resolution. All resolutions now support a 16:9 and 4:3 variant.

- Added 4k export resolution option.

- Added player speed controls to the main browser window. The player can now be played at 0.1x, 0.25x, 1x, and 2x speeds.

- Speed control setting persist between app sessions.

- Note: speed controls do not affect exported videos. They are strictly to alter player speed in the main browser window.

- Added a playhead date and time display underneath the main player. The playhead time will display the exact date and time of the current event being played. This feature supports multi-event compositions. This feature is particularly useful for getting the exact timestamps for significant events that occur during your footage.

- Added an option to change the resolution of the preview in the main interface. Using a lower resolution will increase playback performance, use less processing power, and reduce playback stuttering if the user is experiencing playback issues.

- Selected preview resolution options persist between app sessions.

- Note: Preview resolution option does not affect exporting. This option only affects the resolution of preview in the main interface window.

- Fixed a bug that would create a less than optimal layout for events with one or two video source files.

TeslaCam browser viewer, Sentry Viewer, MacOS

Welcome to Sentry Viewer! These posts will be dedicated to keeping track of changes made to releases of Sentry Viewer. Here are a list of features available in v1.0.0

  • Ability to view high level folders (sentry clips, recent clips, saved clips).

  • High level folders that are missing will have an alert next to them letting you know that a particular folder is missing.

  • Display each 1 minute clip as a single event in the event browser.

  • Right click a row (or multiple rows if they are selected) and select open in Finder. This is a quick way to get straight to the source videos you are looking for without browsing them one by one.

  • Video events are labeled with their date and record start time.

  • The number of video events in a high level TeslaCam folder is displayed at the top of the event browser.

  • Selecting a single row in the event browser populates the player with all clips for that particular event allowing you to quickly scrub through all cameras at once.

  • Dynamic video layout. A video layout will be determined by the number of valid files for a particular event. Teslas on V9 and older will use a three video layout. Teslas on V10 and later will use the four corners square layout.

  • Selecting multiple rows (via shift + left click or command + left click) in the event browser allows you to select multiple video events to be checked.

  • When one more videos are checked, the "Generate video with selected events" button can be pressed to generate a composition in the player. This is a highly effective way to scrub through dozens of clips in a short amount of time.

  • Export. To begin an export, check one or more events and go to File > Export. Files will be saved 1080p by default. Export resolutions will be added soon.

  • You may cancel an export while it is in progress.
