Abstract: Current datasets for long-form video understanding often fall short in providing genuine long-form comprehension challenges, as many tasks derived from these datasets can be successfully tackled by analyzing just one or a few random frames from a video. To address this issue, we present a novel dataset and benchmark, \logan, specifically designed for authentic long-form video understanding. This paper details our innovative approach for creating a question-answer dataset, utilizing advanced LLMs and building upon human-generated raw data. Our comprehensive dataset comprises 200,000 multiple-choice questions (MCQs), covering a diverse range of visual and multimodal aspects, including temporal comprehension, understanding of human-object interactions, and reasoning about events or actions within a scene. Additionally, we evaluate recent advances in video-centric LLMs, both open-source and proprietary, using the evaluation split of our dataset. The findings reveal that even state-of-the-art vision LLMs significantly lag behind human performance in these tasks, highlighting the challenges inherent to video understanding.
