Sounds great.

Ambitious. ;-) I wonder how much sepparation is possible. Anyway, as a goal
it sounds good. Who cares if you achieve it 100%.

this one?

Yes, I am. I'll check out your src and see what I can do. I have a few
sample projects that render to clips and are 100% hardcoded in C++. I want to try
and embed a KVideoWidget in you GUI and display the samples, or is that
already done? Next step, use your gui to set input strems to the samples. Next,
try some dialogs to setup the transitions (ignoring a generic IFace for now).
Then, there is a big problem. The visualization of the timeline. This is a big
problem, but maybe not in the very near future. Let's see what happens.
