Last update in August 2015.

This is an attempt to coordinate the work that has to be done towards Kdenlive 1.0. If you want to work on some parts of Kdenlive, leave a note here so that we know who is doing what. Design ideas can also be explained here.

== Project Bin ==

* Titler
Done:
+
** Keep a simple text incrustation tool, but call a full featured SVG editor for complex designs
* Add clip to Bin
+
*** Base it on WebVFX (allowing to use HTML, javascript or QML) to avoid maintaing our own MLT module? Here is a [https://kdenlive.org/sites/kdenlive.org/data/webvfx/retitler.html small demo] of what it can achieve
* Create clip using the list of available MLT producers
+
** Support for subtitles (or MLT module)?
* Play Bin Clip in Monitor
+
* Timeline
 +
** Automatic composite for clips with alpha
 +
** Cross fades on same track (à la Shotcut)
 +
** Quick switch individual/global proxy/thumbnails
 +
** Synchronized tracks (ripple delete / spacer tool etc would keep track groups in sync)
 +
** Copy/paste across projects
 +
* Exports

** Kdenlive 0.x format
 +
** OpenShot, FlowBlade, PiTiVi...
 +
** EDL and other exchange formats (MLT module?)
 +
* Effects
 +
** UI for  keyframes relative to end or in %
 +
** Apply GEGL/G'MIC/Blender effects (MLT module)?
 +
* UI
 +
** Shortcut matching other editors (Avid, Apple, Adobe, Sony, Pinnacle etc) => Get Hot New Stuff sharing
 +
** Scopes as MLT modules?
  
In Progress:
+
* Alternative timeline view specialised on editing transitions (snapshot, just for demonstration; click for full size and see the SVG in the refactoring branch for infinite size):
* Manage clip zones - JBM
+
[[File:Kdenlive Timeline TransitionView.png]]
  
Todo:
 
* Edit clip properties
 
* Add MLT Playlist, Slideshow and Title clip types
 
* Clip jobs
 
* Clip timeline and effects (will allow to open a project clip in a separate timeline and add effects to it)
 
  
== Monitors ==
+
More wishlist/ideas can be found on https://userbase.kde.org/Kdenlive/Ideas
Done:
 
* Set to full screen (double click)
 
* Switch between available modes (SDL / OpenGL / GLSL / QGraphicsScene)
 
* Overlay info messages
 
* Basic zone functionnality
 
  
In Progress:
+
= Documentation =
* Manage several zones / markers, display overlay info - JBM
 
  
Todo:
+
* Workflow
* Play / loop zone
+
** What are the git branches used for
* Keyboard shortcuts
+
* Code documentation
 +
** give big-picture views (explain to someone new to the code what it does, why it is required, and who it interacts with)
  
== Timeline ==
+
= Refactoring =
Done:
 
* Open basic MLT playlist
 
  
Todo:
+
* Break big classes into smaller ones (targetting the refactored architecture: Cutsomtrackview, Renderer...)
* Add clip to timeline
+
* Replace XML manipulations with MLT API calls
* All clip operations (move, cut, ...) - framework is partially there
+
* Port UI to QML
* Track operations
 
  
== Rendering ==
+
The proposed architecture can be found in the [http://quickgit.kde.org/?p=kdenlive.git&a=tree&hb=35ec064a62cc3490a19b68928df580b1c99f8326 refactoring branch] in ''refactoring-doc/'' – find some snapshots here (not updated, just to get an impression):
Todo:
 
* Should we use MLT presets?
 
  
== Recording ==
+
[[File:KdenliveArchitectureModel.png]]
Todo:
 
* Add config dialog to select source
 
* Add Multi consumer to save recording to file
 
* Port StopMotion widget, using the new Scene Mode so that we can use all QGraphicsView features.
 
  
== Titler ==
+
[[File:KdenliveArchitectureView.png]]
Todo:
 
* What to do with it? Full rewrite? Would [https://github.com/rectalogic/webvfx WebVfx] be an option?
 
  
== Scopes ==
+
See discussion [[Kdenlive/Redesign | here]]
Todo:
+
 
* Adjust them to the new framework
+
= Done! =
 +
 
 +
* Port Kdenlive to KF5 (KDE Framework 5)
 +
* Write an OpenGL display. When this is done, Movit can be integrated.
 +
* Refactor ProjectManagement/Bin
 +
* Project clips effects, so e.g. colour grading is done only once on the clip in the project bin and not every time in the timeline
 +
* Render using MLT presets
 +
* Duplicate Title clips

Documentation

  • Workflow
    • What are the git branches used for
  • Code documentation
    • give big-picture views (explain to someone new to the code what it does, why it is required, and who it interacts with)

Refactoring

  • Break big classes into smaller ones (targetting the refactored architecture: Cutsomtrackview, Renderer...)
  • Replace XML manipulations with MLT API calls
  • Port UI to QML

The proposed architecture can be found in the refactoring branch in refactoring-doc/ – find some snapshots here (not updated, just to get an impression):

See discussion here

Done!

  • Port Kdenlive to KF5 (KDE Framework 5)
  • Write an OpenGL display. When this is done, Movit can be integrated.
  • Refactor ProjectManagement/Bin
  • Project clips effects, so e.g. colour grading is done only once on the clip in the project bin and not every time in the timeline
  • Render using MLT presets
