In the last chapter, a content-based video summarization and navigation system was proposed for feature films. Although promising results have been achieved, a sophisticated user study shows that this summarization system is still far from perfection. One shortcoming of the system is that the static storyboard is not able to well represent the movie content due to the lack of audio and motion information. In fact, a majority of test viewers, who participated in the survey, said that they would prefer a short video clip rather than a set of still images for the content browsing purpose. Apparently, continuous video flow will be more appealing to users than a handful of still images.
