I want to be able to customize how the video info (file name, file size, duration, resolution, etc) is laid out. I don't like how everything takes up a line by itself causing a lot of empty space at the top. If you add more variables to the "Comment" feature, I should be able to do that myself. Things like [DURATION] [FILE SIZE] [WIDTH] [HEIGHT], etc.

Thank you.

Thanks for the reply. Off the top of my head:

Important:
  • FILENAME
  • FILESIZE
  • DURATION
  • WIDTH and HEIGHT (or at least RESOLUTION)
Nice to haves:
  • FRAMERATE
  • AUDIO_CHANNELS
And if you could add a way to make multiline comments with something like [NEWLINE] or "\n", etc, that would be great.

Thanks

Hello, I'm also interested on changes/updates on this feature. There are 3 aspects I would like you to consider fixing/changing in regard with the technical details section:

1. The fact that sometimes the filename gets cut at the end of the thumbnail sheet because there is no space left on the line. It would be great if VTM could distribute/split the text automatically or at choice in more lines.
2. More flexibility and options when it comes to variables-labels in the comment section: currently cannot use here the label [VIDEO TECH] nor [SIZE_GB] or [SIZE_MB], still the problem of the information getting cut when no space left on the line.
3. The empty space in technical details since there is no option to put all the info in one line from the stamps options, for any check a new line for that information is created resulting in those empty spaces.

Please do take a look to the screenshots attached.

Hello,

To be honest, I do not like the idea of printing all data into a single string or two.
Yes, it saves space, but usually it is diffucult to find useful information in such sets of data.
That is why I designed the header in the current style, leaving one comment string for enthusiasts.

On the other hand, I will check the possibility to add [VIDEO TECH], [SIZE_GB] and [SIZE_MB] to comment string.
