Claim of US Patent No. 9,560,333

1. A movie processing apparatus comprising:
one or more processors; and
a memory storing instructions which, when executed by the one or more processors, cause the movie processing apparatus to:
accept a first instruction to delete a section of a chapter including a frame image while displaying the frame image corresponding
to a paused position, the paused position being a position where a reproduction was paused in response to acceptance of a
pause instruction from a user during reproduction of a series of frames of a movie divided into a plurality of chapters;

obtain, upon accepting the first instruction, a number of a first frame and a number of a last frame of the section of the
chapter including the frame image of the paused position of the reproduction, and reproduce the movie of the section of a
deletion target chapter from the first frame to the last frame of the section even when the frame image which was displayed
when the pause instruction was accepted is different from the frame image of the first frame;

accept, after reproduction of the section of the deletion target chapter starts, a second instruction to execute a deletion
operation for the section of the deletion target chapter or a cancellation instruction of the deletion operation; and

delete, in response to acceptance of the second instruction, the section of the deletion target chapter of the movie,
wherein reproduction of the section of the deletion target chapter automatically repeats until the second instruction or the
cancellation instruction is accepted, and

wherein a display state transitions to a state where the first frame of the chapter, which includes the frame image which
was displayed when the pause instruction was accepted, is displayed when the cancellation instruction was accepted, and the
display state transitions to a state where a first frame of a chapter after the deleted chapter is displayed when the second
instruction was accepted.
