Minimum Requirements
Software: TVP Animation 9.0+ or Mirage 1.0+ or Aura 1.0c+* or Aura DV 1.0e+* or Video Toaster [2]+
Description
GUI
Range Finder provides the capability of managing frame selections and ranges, in a very time saving manner. Amongst other animation specific functions, such as page-flipping, is the ability to quickly access specific frames or sections of a project by assigning names such as "Intro", "Kitchen", "Boy Meets Girl", "End Credits", or "Restaurant Rules!" - whatever your mind desires. Ranges need not be just section titles, names such as "Needs color", "Bad pixel track", "Add background layer", can make managing large projects much easier; especially if you're working on a group project.

Range Finder was specifically created to assist with long projects, where sections need to be revisited regularly to apply multiple effects, do repetitive tasks, etc. It was developed during work on a complex video project, where numerous pixel track motions had to be created in several sections of the video, and where detailed image separation (involving repeated color/luma keying) was necessary to achieve mult-layered effects. Quick access to sections of the video, made the process much less tedious.
