Discovery issues with certain kinds of images

An intersting question came in regarding a problem often encountered by LE folks processing / redacting CP images for court. Obviously, you don't want to process them one at a time when there are hundreds of images to redact. The question was tossed around and here's a simple way to do it in FIVE courtesy of our friends at Amped Software.

  • Open a sequence of images (Load>Sequence Loader)
  • Redact by blackening the whole image (Presentation>Hide Selection), then choose blacken at 100%, then change the shape from round to square, then on the “selection” tab, click and then choose “whole image” from the dropdown.
  • Export the redacted images as another sequence (Write>Sequence Writer). Change the file name / location to be what you need it to be.
  • Generate your report (Project>Generate Report.
I know not many folks work with CP. I hope this helps.
