The Pitivi video editor is based on the GStreamer Editing Services library (GES). Various projects use GES to manage audio or video projects and export the project to a new file to be distributed. Pitivi is developed in very close contact with GES. Both Pitivi and GES would benefit a lot from better documentation. We’re applying to the Season of Docs program, where Google pays technical writers to contribute to open-source projects.
Season of Docs
The Pitivi video editor is based on the GStreamer Editing Services library. GES makes it easy to manage the timeline of a video project and export it to a new video file, and is carefully built to be reusable by other projects, not only Pitivi. Since a few years ago, while not mentoring students for GSoC, we’ve been busy working on Pitivi 1.0, about to be released. A large part of this was spent on fixing and improving the GES library.
