If you have a video captured for an event, you have all the memories (in the form of photos and videos) in that video clip. Candid Moments automatically extracts candid photos from your raw video clip. It uses content intelligence to automatically identify and extract good quality, in focus photo moments. You can also manually add or remove candid photo moments. Once you have extracted all the candid photo moments, you can save to your computer, export to the timeline, or create a slideshow. You can use it for one or more clips from any event, be it a birthday party, school game, dance performance, or skiing trip.
