Pitivi is getting effects, Part 2

Here is my second report about the implementation of effects in Pitivi. I am going quite well with this project, and I now have almost everything ready to be able to add effects to videos. The dragging of effects to the timeline is almost ready, but I need to work on it a bit more to be able to show you a screen-cast! I hope it can be done next week.

Sorry for this kind of useless post, but I just wanted to tell you I make good progress, and I should be able to show you more soon!

You still can have a look at my git repository

Pitivi is getting effects, Part 1

Here is the first report about my Google summer of code project. I have been working quite a lot on it for the last 2 weeks! So here is the summary of what have been done so far:

  • Code reading, analyze of Pitivi architecture (Thanks to the pitivi wiki)

  • Some reading about Gstreamer to understand better the way it works

  • Creation of my git branch to start working on effects implementation

  • Implementation of the core Pitivi modifications to be able to create effects (With unit tests)

  • See how I can implement effect files as described in my Gsoc application, and discussions about it in the Pitivi community. We actually didn't take a fixed decision about this for now.

  • Creation of the UI to show the list of effects detected thanks to the gstreamer registry (the list was already retrieved in Pitivi)

  • Some talking to know how this UI should be done. I will need to talk more about that to the Pitivi community to take a good decision about how it should look like. For now, it looks like:

I am now working on drag'n droping effects to the timeline.

That is all for now, and I will give you frequent news about how things are going.
