Abstract

A system for generating video clips includes a video processing system configured to receive a video file from a video capture system, and to create video clips based on significant moments identified in the video file. The video processing system includes a file storage and database system configured to store the video file, and storing an ontology and keywords associated with themes that are pertinent to the overall theme of the video file. The video processing system also includes a natural language processing (NLP) moments module configured to identify themes contained in the video file using the ontology and the keywords, and to identify time codes associated with the identified themes. The video processing system also includes a video clip generator configured to generate video clips based on the identified time codes.

Abstract

A ride system includes a tunnel, a vehicle ride path, a ride vehicle, and a projection system. The tunnel includes a first end and a second end and is curved between the first and second ends. The vehicle ride path extends within the tunnel from an entrance at the first end of the tunnel to an intermediate position within the tunnel. The second end of the tunnel is not visible from the intermediate position. The ride vehicle travels along the vehicle ride path and decelerates as the ride vehicle approaches the intermediate position. The projection system projects images onto one or more walls of the tunnel, such that the images are synchronized with the deceleration of the ride vehicle and a perceived speed of the ride vehicle, as perceived by a guest in the ride vehicle, exceeds an actual speed of the ride vehicle.
