So I have this idea to cut a long movie automatically. It goes like this:
- You record a long movie in one piece, for instance one of those great gopro first person-movies.
- While recording you have a heart rate monitor connected to a suitable watch that records your heart rate
- Then you sync your heart rate monitor and your videocam with your computer and align both files so they are in sync, ie heart rate equals frame or heart rate equals time of video.
- As soon as your heart rate goes up, the video is being cut out for you to have only those elements left when your heart was beating fast. This should result in a video containing only the most exciting parts, ie it won't be boring.
A problem with that could be: Your heart does not only beat fast when you are anxious or excited but also when you are doing sports in general. Or is it a different pattern over time when being anxious versus doing sports? Does a heart beat amplitude measurement help? Are other biofeedback sensors better? What is your take on this?
