…it’s back. And it will not stop until it has accomplished its mission.

This week, Daniel Thul fixed and reactivated the clip thumbnailing code for Pitivi’s timeline. But he didn’t just stop there. No sir. He implemented caching too, and that made my week.

La pression sociale

Voici quelques pensées générales sur la responsabilité, le déterminisme et sur la société dans laquelle nous vivons.

Je vais à contre-courant sur une poignée de choses dans la vie:

Surviving Git

Auteur:

Git can feel extremely unnatural to those who came from Bazaar. Only after a lot of advice from friends, the right tools and a few months of intensive usage did I feel confident enough to use it without fear. Many are probably in the same boat as me though, so I took a couple of hours to clean up my personal notes and make a proper “crash course” tutorial for Git in the Pitivi context.

Are you a student who wants to get involved in shaping the future of open source video editing? Are you looking for a friendly project providing stimulating challenges and a well-established codebase and expertise? Then consider applying for the Summer of Code programme to work on Pitivi or GES! See this page for the list of ideas for Pitivi. Don’t wait though: the deadline for applying is April 6th.

Pourquoi j’ai quitté Facebook: des précisions

Il y a deux ans je quittais définitivement Facebook. Depuis ce temps ma vie s’en est trouvée significativement améliorée, mais on me questionne encore sur les raisons de cette décision. Chaque fois, on me regarde comme si j’étais autiste. J’ai pensé aujourd’hui mettre à jour le billet que j’avais posté jadis, mais comme l’explication risque d’être longue, autant faire un nouveau billet:

Switching PiTiVi’s main git repository

Due to public demand, the official main repository for PiTiVi is now git.gnome.org/pitivi instead of git://git.pitivi.org/git/pitivi.git

This has many advantages:

What the heck is this GES thing anyway?

“GES. You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.”

Unless you’ve been following the PiTiVi’s development very closely lately, it is often hard to imagine what GES does and how important it is to PiTiVi. I therefore wrote an explanatory page about it and updated the architecture overview on the wiki, in the hope of clearing things up. Let me know if something’s missing or if you have suggestions to enhance those pages.

Prévisualisation en temps réel du redimensionnement de séquences dans Pitivi

Ceci est une traduction d’un billet que j’ai publié avant-hier sur Planet GNOME. Je ne sais pas trop comment traduire « trimming », alors je me base sur le terme « redimensionnement » de la version française du manuel de PiTiVi (même si l’usage du mot sonne étrange).

Trim like a professional hair stylist

In my spare time this week I implemented one of my favorite missing features in PiTiVi: a live preview of what you’re trimming. No more fuzzying around and moving the playhead all the time to figure out if you cut your scene right. No more trial and error. Just pure, unadulterated productivity. HTML5 video below:
