Motion - Preview Center

Preview image based center of image

Description of Patch

PreviewCenter selects the preview image based on how far center of motion is from center of the image. The image nearest center is saved as preview image. Everyting else is working as in BestPreviewShot. See BestPreviewShot for more info.

Installation of Patch

Download the patch file. If it is packed as a gz or tar.gz unpack it first. Then copy it to the motion source directory and issue the command (assuming the patch file is called filename_of_patch_file.diff)

patch < preview_center.diff

Then re-build Motion and test the patch.

Good idea. Not much additional overhead. Transparent to old setups. I'll give it a try.
