One Swipe Sharing System: Interactive System and Method for Improvised and Timeshifted Recording of Video Game Screens
With the user interface realized by this invention, it becomes possible to specify a suitable time range for a play-video of a game just with a single swipe operation performed at an arbitrary timing while the game is being played and to execute timeshifted recording of the play-video. The technical novelty of this invention consists in that an operation for going backward from the current time along the available duration of a play-video recorded in the background during a game play in order to specify a recording range of the play-video retroactively from an arbitrary point in time is implemented in the form of a swipe operation in which the player touches a recording start button on the screen with a finger and slides the finger while keeping contact with the screen, which makes it possible, with a single operation, to specify two parameters, namely, a recording start time and a recording end time. This makes it possible for anyone to create and share play-videos anytime quickly and with an intuitive operation. Compared with the existing technologies, in which play-videos are recorded in predetermined units of time in games or in which recording is started when a record button is pressed, this invention is advantageous in that it allows timeshifted recording anytime without having to suspend a game for a long time.
