[Kdenlive-devel] QDVDAuthor - export

I think it is a two step process.
1) you create the videos in Kdenlive
2) you export (or start) QDVDAuthor

I don't think that we need some kind of communication pipe between the 
two programs (I.e. if you change some video/setting in kdenlive should 
not affect QDVDAuthor's handling of the material).

I can create any type of import filter (that is not too complex). I am 
currently supporting dvdauthor and spumux xml files (to some degree) and 
kino's SMIL format.

We could agree on a set xml format for the data exchange. However if you 
could export a dvdauthor/spumux pair of xml's then the user could also 
use dvdauthor directly if he wishes to. In that case you can simply pass 
the generated file names to QDVDAuthor like this :

 > qdvdauthor -d <dvdauthor.xml> -s < spumux1.xml spumux2.xml ... >

In which case I would be done on my side ;)

If this is too complex or does not grant all the flexibility we seek, we 
can come up with our own format.
