A user has a Quicktime File (either self-contained or a reference quicktime from their Editing System) on their local file system. We would like to add the ability to extract thumbnails from this quicktime for upload to our Rails backend. Rails will serve JSON to the uploader modal with the specific timecode intervals where the images should be extracted.
Our stack is Rails backend and ember.js frontend.
The Quicktime files will be in the Avid DNx HD (SMPTE VC-3 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DNxHD_codec), Apple ProRes (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apple_ProRes), and .h264 Codecs.
The thumbnails should be .TIFF, .JPEG, or .PNG.
The ideal candidate should be familiar in dealing with Video Timecode, and the Video Codecs referenced above.
We have other projects to hopefully continue with the right knowledgable candidate.
