Discussed rough draft of the Preliminary Report and Options Ratings
Package Options
Discussion of which options should be left in our preliminary report, and which options needed a change in rating.
Our Idea of the project compared to our idea of the Clients Concept
Issues:
Picture Taking: Us or Them? -- Determined the client probably wants our program to take automatic pictures at specified points of the playback file
How to take pictures -- again determined that the client wants an option to choose "gray" or "color" before creating the pictures
When to convert the file -- Automatic conversion happened when indexer is ran
Preference File? -- Have a separate file created by the program which holds user option info for our auto-indexer to access and use in the indexing process
Tiff to JPEG format product needed
Need to determine how client files are set up
Where do we put indexable JPEGs? -- determined a separate folder would be the best place
Does the auto-indexer need to be on the web or not? -- undecided thus far
Determined the 3 separate parts of our product
Shell Script to run auto-indexer at a particular time
Auto-indexer

Who needs access to the project? -- Internal group, or external
