The manipulation of video content is still a difficult task due to its complexity and richness. This paper applies pen-based technology to video editing, with the goal to improve such interaction. In this research, digital ink is replaced by video content, aiming to provide a more familiar and creative interaction for video editing and to study how pen gestures can be used on this context as well as what kind of changes are needed in the interface. The concept was implemented in a Tablet PC prototype and evaluated by expert and non-expert users. The user feedback shows that this approach proved to be natural and at the same time to foster user creativity as measured by the Creative Support Index.
