Label Studio 1.6 - Video Object Tracking and New Annotation UI

Label Studio Team

New Video Object Tracking Functionality

Video Classification was available prior to version 1.6, but the latest release introduces a new video player and enables Video Object Tracking, giving users the ability to:

  • Label and track objects across subsequent frames, for fine-grained control
  • Use optional hotkey-driven navigation for even greater granularity in tracking objects
  • Add keyframes and automatically interpolate bounding boxes between keyframes to easily transition bounding box sizes and positions
  • Select and label between timestamps on the video with improved timeline segmentation

Get started with the video object detection and tracking template.

Major Annotation UI Update

The new UI for annotators, which has also been available in preview mode but is now in full release, supports the new video player, but also benefits labeling workflows for every data type. Changes include:

  • Dual ‘Region’ and ‘Details’ control panels vs a single sidebar, allowing annotators to view all pertinent information about the task without scrolling
  • Collapsable, draggable and resize-able panels for annotators to customize their workspace, especially useful to view images or video at a larger scale
  • More granular controls for each bounding box, including the ability to precisely set bounding box width, height and coordinates to fit an object for pixel-perfect annotations
  • A cleaner interface to group and organize regions, link, add metadata, and delete regions, plus new functionality to lock regions

Label Studio 1.6 also includes other exciting improvements and bug fixes. To see the full list of updates and contributors to this release, check out the changelog on GitHub.
